Chintaphu Trek – Scenic Trek Between India and Nepal


Chintaphu Trek is not just another trek. It’s a scenic trail walk through the picturesque villages between India and Nepal. Chintaphu trek allows you to trek between these two countries. It takes only seven days from your busy schedule. If you are a trek beginner or want to spend some time in scenic, calm and less travelled places, this trek is suitable for you. If you want to enjoy the trail with your kids, it is an amazing place for them to enjoy and learn about trekking and fall in love with nature. 

The Chintaphu Top offers the most splendid views of the massive Kanchanjaungha and the highest peaks of the Himalayas – Everest and Lhotse. A less travelled trail with natural beauties, innocent village people, village huts, rhododendron forest and possible sightings of deer and red pandas. Incredible sunrise and sunsets from every place make this trail one of a kind in its originality.
