About Singalila Ridge

The Singalila Ridge is a north-south running mountain ridge in northwestern West Bengal, India. The district of Ilam in Nepal falls on the western part of this ridge, and the northern ridge ends up in Sikkim, the Indian part of the Himalayas. It divides mountain ranges of West Bengal from other Himalayan ranges to its west. The two highest peaks of West Bengal, Sandakphu (3,636 m (11,929 ft)) and Phalut (3,600 m (11,800 ft)) are situated on the ridge. The Singalila National Park encompasses the ridge. It is well-known for its views of Mount Everest and Kanchenjunga. The trek from Manebhanjan to Sandakphu and Phalut is popular.

The four highest peaks are :
