Also known as Kanchenjunga Panorama View Trek, trekking in Milke Danda is the off the beaten trail trekking to Far Eastern Nepal. It is the forested ridge of Milke Danda that separates Arun Valley with Tamor Valley. The hilltop of Milke Danda offers panoramic views of four highest mountains of the world including Makalu and Kanchenjunga Mountains. Besides the mountain views, Milke dada Trekking is famous for the remote trail that swings forth through the array of the colorful forest of blooming rhododendrons and other high alpine flowers and herbs.

Milkedanda is one of the four major areas for rhododendron treks, other areas being Upper Tamur River, Langtang Valley and Makalu Barun. The forested ridge of Milke Danda stretches up to 25km territory and over 20species of rhododendrons are available in Milkedada.
