The Singalila Ridge is a north-south mountain ridge running from northwestern West Bengal through Sikkim in the Indian part of the Himalayas. The district of Ilam in Nepal falls on the western part of this ridge.

The ridge separates 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))[1] and Phalut (3,600 m (11,800 ft)) are located on the ridge. The Singalila National Park encompasses the ridge. It is noted for its views of Kanchenjunga and Mount Everest. The trek from Manebhanjan to Sandakphu and Phalut is popular amongst adventure travelers, as is mountain biking.[2]
