The biggest reason to do the Goechala trek is the grand views of the big mountains that you see. You don’t just see one summit — the Kanchenjunga — but 14 other big summits. That’s a lot for any trek — especially as close to the eyes as on the Goechala trek. It is no wonder that trekkers consider Goechala to be the closest to the big mountain treks of Nepal.
Goechala is also a high-altitude trek that takes you beyond 15,000 ft. The trek climbs rapidly and your safety depends a lot on the preparation you put in for the trek.
In this video, Swathi Chatrapathy Chief Editor at Indiahikes, takes you through all the difficult sections of the trek.
She covers important points like the altitude gain, ascents and descents, the challenges of climbing to viewpoint and the weather on the Goechala trek. She also throws light on the possibilities of acute mountain sickness (altitude sickess) on the Goechala trek.
She finally ends the video with some important tips on how to prepare for the trek. Watch the video to physically and mentally prepare yourself for the Goechala trek.
