Unless you are constrained by time go for Goechla . Dzongri is on the way and the top is a strenuous one hour hike to summit. Both gives you splendid views of the mountain ranges. Goechla gives you the complete view of Kanchenjhunga and closer.

4200 metres above MSL is the amazing Dzongri. From the Dzongri top we can have the first view of mighty Mt. Kanchandzonga!!! The climb from Tshoka is tough till Devralia top. But its worth the effort!!

We have gone from South Dum Adventure trekkers Welfare Association -- total 10 people at end of April. At start there were rains incessantly from very start day i.e. from yuksum. We carried all rucksacks covered with raincoats and could not rest for a while at least due to leeches. First days rest was at Bakhim at a guest house. Next day the rain was slow and morning sun gave us help in drying somewhat the contents of rucksack till we start for Dzongri via tsoka. that was a long walk and we took one days rest at Dzongri on next day. Dzongri top was somewhat cloudy and we were somewhat disappointed and spent the day in leisure. 4th Day was to move to Thansing via kokchurang. Snow started on the way while we marched past from kokchurang. and reached thansing within next 40 minutes. That night heavy snowfall made the tents crumbled and we took shelter in the trekkers hut. next day was to go till lamuney only 4 km. This day was a straight walk. and to go to the only hut kept for shepherds. keeping in mind we took at the shepherds hut for the night. 6th day was to wake early at 4 am to venture for goachala top. that day heavy snow was there from samity lake and just after sunrise we reached all 10 to the 1st view point of goachala. After taking some snaps some of us decided to move back to lamuney. 5 of us decided to go further to 2nd view point. after descending a curve down to almost 200ft at 60 degree we reached a level path covered with snow and that place was jemathang. snow covered path became more hardy as we moved more and reached at the foot of next view point. there was gravel path and a steep path towards the 2nd view point. there was a lake like samity lake but bigger in size. We then descended till lamuney where we took lunch and start to descend to spent the night at thansing again.…

Dzongri can be reached by two days hard trek. The place is ideal to blend with the wilderness of eastern Himalayas.

Dzongri is a series of interlinked grassy meadows in the midst of deep ravines and mountains. It is almost as if it shouldn't be there and is a real surprise after the slog up the steep heavily wooded track on the way in. Views of Kanchenjunga and other peaks from a convenient hill are superb.…
