Our next day was started with the chill and cold breeze. We watched sunrise from our hotel and then we had completed our breakfast. I still remembered my previous night because the sky was full of stars and I had never been seen this before which is so much close to my eyes. That was a lovely experience for me in Sandakphu trek
After completed our breakfast we explored the natural beauty of this place. We saw almost 360 degree view of that place.
Gorkhey Hill located 3 km away from Sandakphu. Almost the road was covered with snow and we reached Gorkhey Hill after 45 minute of our departure.
Some tourist had also been gone that place through tracking. Here you can see different religions who love this tracking. One’s you reached Gorkhey Hill you can see the peak of Kanchanjangha.
We were staying at that place about 4 hours. Though some time the clouds came and covered that place.

But this tour gives us a break from our daily monotonous life. At least we went a village for lunch but the food was not very good still we had managed.
After all this tour was not an office tour but some of my office colleague accompanied by me to organize this tour.
After visiting this place we again came back to our hotel. Actually we had a plan to visit Falut but the road was blocked due to heavy snow fall. So we had changed our plan and we went Gorkhey hill. All over the experience was good.
