SIKKIM, one of the smallest states in India is blessed with mountains, lakes, rivers, glaciers & dense forests. Sikkim culturally shares a lot of similarities with Bhutan, Tibet, and Nepal. Sikkim’s beauty is enhanced by the co-existence of Lepchas, Nepalis, and Bhutias.
Experience Sikkim like a local. Get immersed in the hospitality of the locals, enjoy the local food, participate in the local activities, learn the preparation of local cuisines, and carry home the memories of a lifetime trip. Sikkim is still a virgin and is attracting all kinds of people.
This route has got some breathtaking views of Mt Kanchandzonga and its range, snow-strewn zigzag roads, endless terraced paddy fields, mind-blowing historical monasteries, and home to a rich variety of flora and fauna.
We take you on a jeep safari on this mesmerizing trip that is not frequented by tourists. It requires a permit to enter the majority of the places as this area borders India & Tibet (China occupied) and is controlled by the Indian Army.
Join us on this trip to the mystic wonderland of Sikkim - this well-kept secret in the lap of the Himalayas will leave you dumbfounded.
