HIKES & ADVENTURES

Darjeeling Hills with Nepal in the west, Sikkim in the north and Bhutan in the east, makes it the hub for adventure seekers. Trekking, mountaineering, rock climbing, white water sports, camping and mountain biking are the major adventure sports presently being organized from the Swiss Hotel against prior information and booking. All these activities are supported by well trained personnel from the respective fields.

There are several categories of trekking routes that have been identified by Help Tourism’s expert team, catering from easy walking tours in the villages and nature, middle altitude treks covering upto 10,000 to 12,000 ft and high altitude treks covering upto 15,000 ft. The area covered is Darjeeling Hills and the adjoining West and South Sikkim.

River Teesta, the pure waters is the major venue for all kinds of White Water sports from rafting, Kayaking to canoeing. There are simple stretches of rafting researched by the Help Tourism team for non swimmers also, mainly for fun; the other is the two days lower and upper stretch rafting for the experience; and the upper stretch of Teesta for expedition.

There are seven to two week long mountain bike itineraries which have been identified after continuous research. Help Tourism has created a support pick up jeep and mechanics for group expeditions with the best made Indian geared bi-cycles. Also it is expected that most cyclists would like to bring in their own bikes and want the Help Tourism adventure division to organize the logistics and route map.

Outdoor Lab (ODL) is a specialized role alignment exercise for corporate and groups who look forward to team building and recognization of role within an organization through specified activities in the outdoors.

Camping is a major support to most of the above exercises and also camping holiday itself is one of the best in the Darjeeling Hills. The Help Tourism adventure division has a dedicated camping support team from the Swiss Hotel in Darjeeling.
