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 preparation of local cuisines, and carry home the memories of a lifetime trip. Sikkim is still 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 in this mesmerizing trip which is not frequented by tourists. It requires a permit to enter majority of the places as this area borders India & Tibet (China) and controlled by the Indian Army.
