Photographer's Note

This shot was taken from Dzongri top around 5:15 am in the morning. Well most of the shots are taken here who ever treks Dzongri but i did not fine any shot of Mt Kanchenjunga from this angle at TE so I uploaded it.

About Dzongri:

At an altitude of 4,200 m Dzongri is among the best trekking destinations not only in Sikkim but also in India. The sights of the milky white peaks all around Dzongri are bound to keep you gazing with awe.The view from this place has too much to be recommended : a patchwork of green and gold streaked with blue - reminiscent of an abstract etching, framed by the majestic snowcapped peaks shining not very far away.

The awesome presence of the great mountains thrusting their snowy peaks deciphers the strength of the Tethys Sea bulging its muscles to reach this towering height. No less than 14 of them soar majestically to 20,000 ft. plus. The centre of attraction of course remain the Kanchenjunga.

Snowfall is common around Dzongri especially during the winter months. The trekker should be well prepared to face the cold. The temperature may go below freezing point any time around the year.he trek to Dzongri is among the tougher ones in Sikkim. Even the experienced porters and guides get tired after reaching Dzongri. naturebeyond strongly recommend trekkers should go for regular fitness exercise for at least a month before coming for this trek.
