Sikkim

Let’s take you to Himalaya’s Best Kept Secret

 

You have no real sense of home -- at least in the traditional sense -- because you feel most at home when you're far from your comfort zone and experiencing some place new.

 

Why go to Sikkim?


Sikkim is a landlocked Indian state located in the Himalayan Mountains. The state is bordered by Nepal to the west, China's Tibet Autonomous Region to the north and east, and Bhutan to the east. The Indian state of West Bengal lies to the south. Dotted with Buddhist shrines, the emphasis of a natural affinity between mountains and monasteries is nowhere more evident than in Sikkim. You can view the snowcapped Himalayas, meditate in the tranquil monasteries; get a glimpse of locals’ lifestyles, their cuisine, culture, festival, language and crafts that are only unique to specific parts of Sikkim. Lose yourself in the markets and tea gardens, and then pump yourself up for the adventure this place offers you. This trip to the dreamland has been designed to give you a peek into the lives of various tribal and village groups.

 

 

Quiz me up!

 

  • • Sikkim's local name 'Denzong', which means the 'Valley of Rice’, is apt since rice is the main crop here. 
    • Sikkim is famous for Kanch-Endzonga, at 8586 meters, which is the third highest mountain peak in the world. 
    • Sikkim is second smallest state of India.

Have you tried Chaang yet?
