Sikkim

Sikkim, a land of enchantment, lies in the heart of the Himalayas, engulfed by snow clad mountains, forest covered ridges, deep ravines and numerous mountain streams. A paradise within human reach, Sikkim, a part of India since 1975, shares it's borders with Tibet in the North, Bhutan in the East, Nepal in the West and the District of Darjeeling in the South. Known also as Beyul Demozong - "hidden rice valley", Sikkim is crowned by Mt. Kanchendzonga (8,586 m), the third highest mountain in the World. From the alpine mountains to the tropical forests, Sikkim holds within it a wealth of flora, fauna and rare animal species.

Gangtok is ideally connected with all major cities through Bagdogra Airport (124 kms). This capital city provides a rare insight into the Indo-Tibetan culture while proudly offering traditional Himalayan hospitality as well as a plethora of rich flora and fauna. There are many beautiful and exclusive treks in West Sikkim along with rafting opportunities on the river Teesta for the nature and adventure enthusiast. Trekking in Sikkim is in stark contrast sweltering plains of the Ganges as you travel through the orchid-laced subtropical forests of the Himalayan foothills. Steep gorges and verdant hillsides dotted with terraced rice paddies that change from a brilliant emerald green to a soft golden hue with the passing of the seasons. High peaks with sacred natural lakes worshipped by the people of Sikkim where local legends abound. Sikkim has many fabled centers of Buddhist worship and learning, the monasteries at Rumtek, Enchey and Pemayangtse to name but three. Awe inspiring stupas and chortens are set amidst fluttering prayer flags and numerous prayer wheels spun by clear mountain streams reminding you that you are somewhere extremely special. Sikkimese people live a simple life with natural gaiety and warmth. They are self-reliant and at ease with their secluded environment. Religion is the pivot around which revolves Sikkim's cultural heritage, life style and festivals. Few can pass this magical land without emerging refreshed.
