About Dafey Bhir trek: The Uttarey/Singalila trek in Sikkim is all along the high ridges of the Singalila Range bordering Sikkim and Nepal. This challenging and off the beaten trek, pioneered by none other than the legendry mountaineer, Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, is over steep and rocky terrain, lush green valleys, fast flowing rivers and beautiful high altitude lakes. It offers striking and majestic views of the Sikkim and Nepal Himalayas including Everest, Lhotse, Makalu and Kanchenjunga from view points like Dafey Bhir. The trek is sure to whet the appetites of those seeking a singular experience

Access to Uttarey (The trek base): Depending upon the trek members we will arrange a pick up from NJP/Bagdogra to Uttarey and back. This will be shared equally by the team members on actual basis.

Otherwise if a trekker wants to reach Uttarey by public vehicle then the option is:

1) Reach NJP in the morning and take a shared auto to Siliguri Junction/SNT(Sikkim Nationalised Transport/Tenzing Norgay Bus Terminus. From  there board a shared vehicle to Jorethang in South Sikkim. This is the entry point for South & West Sikkim. If you reach there by Noon then probably you will get your seat in one of the few shared taxis plying Between Jorethang and Uttarey.
