Usually, trekking in groups is a good idea. Though Sandakfu isn't one of the most treacherous treks, it is inadvisable to head out on this one by yourself.

It is a good idea to start the trek early in the day and to cover the 26 km distance from Darjeeling to Maneybhanjyang by road. One can also go upto Sukhiapokhri, halfway from Darjeeling since transport to this point is easily available. You can even trek from here to Maneybhanjyang(4 km). The drive from Darjeeling to Sukhiapokhri is about one hour and from there to Maneybhanjyang another half an hour.

There is a small tea house about 7 km from Maneybhanjyang at Meghma. Stop for some tea and snacks here. Spend the night at the Trekker's Hut in Tonglu.

Your trek the next day is pretty easy in the start, still it is preferable to start early. Stop over at Garibas for tea and snacks. The last 4 km of trek to Sandakfu can be taxing, so take it slow!
