The trek to Green Lakes, the base camp of Mount Khangchendzonga on the Zemu glacier is one of the most beautiful trekking trails in Sikkim. Green Lakes doesn’t mean there is a lake, but one will see unbelievable stretch of green frozen glacier, which is known by the name Zemu Glacier. The view of Mt. Sinolchu (6887m) there is no other mountain that can equal Sinolchu in beauty and boldness. As mentioned by Doglas Freshfield, who had seen many mountains on earth, Green Lake trek starts from Zeema 6km ahead of Lachen. Lachen is a beautiful village itself where we set our base of this trek. Gangtok to Lachen is a day’s journey of 5-6hours by tourist jeep).

** All the porters will carry only 25kg, every 4porters will get one more porter for carrying their rations, (Which means for 4porters we have to pay 5heads)
** No matter in how many days lesser we complete the trek, yet we have to pay for 10days.
** Porter wages are very high due to local contract System.
