Varsey Hilley Trek - 4 Days

The Barsey or Varsey Rhododendron Sanctuary occupies around 104 sq kms in the Singalila range in West Sikkim. Varsey is called the valley of Rhododendrons – they are available in all shades and shapes here. It can be entered via three different gates situated in Hilley, Dentam and Soreng. The Hilley gate is most popular since the trek distance from here is only 4-5 kms taking around two hours one way. It is a well marked forest trail and can be easily traversed without a guide. One can also experience a multiple day trek inside this forest but that will require a proper guide and camping equipment.

Trek to Barsey Rhododendron Sanctuary is around 4 KM with not much steep road. So one way journey would take you around 2 Hours depending on your walking ability. But rest assured, it's one of the easiest trek in the earth which is also known as Honeymoon Trek.

How to reach: One initially needs to reach NJP railway Station or Bagdogra airport. From here Okhrey is around 125 kms away and the journey takes almost 6 hrs.

Detailed Itinerary - 3 Nights / 4 Days Tour
Arrival at NJP and driive to Okhrey Via Melli and Jorethang. This cosy little village is mostly inhabited by the Sherpa and Bhutia communities hailing from the hilly regions around here. Take your day’s rest and meal in a local homestay in order to interact with the folks from here and get an authentic taste of what it means to be leading such lives. Rest well as your trek commences the next day.
Distance: Reach Hilley at a distance of 10kms to Okhrey. This drive will take about 30 minutes and thereafter, from Hilley start your trek till Varsey. The trek distance is approximately 4.5kms and can be completed within 3 – 4 hours. There is some rush today. Wake up, freshen up, and we’ll arrange for your breakfast. Visit the solitary monastery nearby – surrounded by lush forest of Rhododendron – after breakfast. After returning from the monastery, our car(s) will take you to Hilley : the point where the motorable roadway ends and the trek to Varsey begins. Take a breath at Hilley (and if you’re lucky, Hilley will offer a grand sight of the Kanchenjungha!), and start the trek to Varsey. Varsey trek is a wonderful Himalayan trek adorned with riots of rhododendron. It is an offbeat trekking destination of Sikkim. A no-sweat trek with moderate hikes will invite you who trek more to get closer to nature. Varsey is around 3060 m in elevation and located near Indo-Nepal border. The trek is dotted with blazing rhododendron and a sanctuary of high altitude birds. Relax for the rest of the day once you reach Varsey. We’ll arrange for you a campfire in the evening to mark your last night. Night stay at Varsey.
Short Hiking to Nagi valley and thereafter Lattar Monsatery. Drive to Okhrey via Hilley. Evening time bon-fire. Dinner and stay Homestay Okhrey.
Early morning breakfast will be arranged for you. Drive for New Jalpaiguri Rilway station / Bagdogra airport.
