When Jyoti asked for a Candid and Raj couldn't deny him one. The photo is from the Changu Lake in Sikkim.

Changu Lake also known as Tsomgo Lake, is a glacial lake in the East Sikkim district, some 40 kilometres from the capital Gangtok. Located at an elevation of 12,313 ft, the lake remains frozen during the winter season.

An amazing view of the starry sky along with the snow capped mountains in Mechuka.
.
Mechuka also known as Menchukha is a small town nestled at 6,000 feet above sea level in the West Siang District of Arunachal. .
.
Menchukha is situated in a forested valley, surrounded by pine trees and thornbushes. The river Yargyapchu flows through the Menchukha town forming a letter M. We will surely upload aerial photographs of the town with the river. The town is 180 kilometres northwest of Along and is only 29 kilometres away from Indo- China border. The nearest airport is Lilabari Airport in Assam.

Because in the end you won't remember the time you spent in the office or mowing your lawn, climb the goddamn mountain.
.
This was one of the best morning views that we had in our Goecha la Trek. The lake in the photo is of the Samiti lake which is at an altitude of 13800ft. Samiti Lake to Goecha la view point is 2 kilometres.
.
The lake was frozen when we reached at 5am. We then started to trek to Goecha la. The photo was clicked when we returned from the top and by then the snow started to melt.

We have a sudden shift in plans for this weekend! Instead of Mawphanlur, we are driving to Nokrek National Park, in search of the Red Panda. .
.
Nokrek has a remnant population of the Red panda that has generated curiosity across the world. Nokrek is also an important habitat of the Asian elephants. The park had eight species of cats, ranging from Tiger to Marbled cat but the current status of the former is uncertain. Whatever, the status of big cat in the park might be, our priorities are to spot a Red Panda.
.
The red panda is a small arboreal mammal that thrives best at 2,200-4,800m, in mixed deciduous and conifer forests with dense understories of bamboo. In Northeast, it is found in Sikkim, western Arunachal Pradesh, Darjeeling district of West Bengal and Nokrek National Park in Meghalaya.
.
Photo credit goes to our friend @travellikeredpanda , who is much fascinated with this small mammal. We wished he could have joined us for our trip to the park.

Hey Guys! We are back from Goecha la. What we experienced in the last couple of weeks was truly spectacular. There are very few trekking trails in India which could could have given us a similar experience.
.
The trail blends typical Eastern Himalayan moist and almost evergreen forests with truly majestic view of Kanchendzongha and a host of high Sikkim peaks almost looming in. Entire Goecha la trek trail runs inside Kanchendzongha National Park. .
.
To know more about the trek, DM us and stay tuned for more photos from the trek.

Hey Folks, what are you doing this Bihu? No plans yet?
.
Check! We have something to offer. We will be based in Nongriat organising back to back trips from 10th of this month. So, if you guys want to drop by, we will love to host you.

How to Reach Tryna? You can take a shared cab from either Khanapara or Paltan Bazar to Police Bazar. From PB you can get a cab to Cherrapunjee and from Cherrapunjee you will get sumos to Tryna. If you are driving by yourself, you just need to follow the same route. Estimated time will be 5 hours from Guwahati. Estimated fare for shared cabs will be Rs. 300 + 70 + 50. If you hire your own cab it will be 2000(Guwahati- Shillong)+ 800 (Shillong-Tryna). You have to reach Tryna before 3pm on 14th. Our Team member won’t wait for anyone after the scheduled time.
.
How much we are charging for the getaway? It’s minimal. Rs. 600 per person. You just need to be there in Tryna. We will provide you tents and all camping gears, guide for the trek and life jackets to swim in the natural ponds. The food however will not be on us; you have to buy it from the villagers.

Guys do you wanna know where we are trekking to next? We are heading for the Goechala Trek in April .
.
This 8 day trek promises splendid scenic extravaganza and thrilling adventurous hike that can leave your heart pumping, yet fill with pleasure. The terrain to Goechala is not easy and the trekking level is from moderate to difficult. However, what you experience beyond this hard fought journey is unexplainable.
.
Goechala is a tiny place located in Sikkim, and is a dream for hundreds of adventure seekers throughout the country. Entangled amidst vibrant and colourful flora and fauna, it is also the way to the astounding Kanchenjunga National Park. It is not about Kanchenjunga alone but the combination of other big summits around it makes Goechala Trek an absolute adventure to many and it is a great pleasure to watch these summits from the landscapes filled with exotic flowers and immensely attractive meadows and dense rhododendron forest. So, stay tuned and wait for our photos to be uploaded. We are pretty sure that those photos will surely convince you to sign up for our next scheduled trip to Goechala.

Two new 'Discovery'ies crossing the Dibang River in a wooden raft in Dambuk. Credits to Land Rover.
.
However, you might not experience a similar experience anymore. The recent completion of a bridge over the Dibang River has brought in all-weather road connectivity to Dambuk subdivision. Earlier, Dambuk subdivision remained cut-off during monsoon season.

Manas National Park is a UNESCO Natural World Heritage site, a Tiger reserve, an elephant reserve and a biosphere reserve in Assam.

As a part of their conservation effort, WWF is helping to train the villages near Manas to create an alternate source of income thereby decreasing their dependency on the reserve and their interaction with wildlife.

One alternate source of income is responsible tourism, and we are training the native villagers to generate an alternate income through their cuisine, handlooms and assisted tours to the tea gardens.

To give the natives a headstart, we have arranged to showcase their cuisine and art in a festival on 7th-8th April. We invite you all to be a part of it. For further details, contact +91 8876224307 or mail us at mail@discovernortheast.in
