Sikkim is situated amongst the highest peaks of the Eastern Himalayas,  offers visitors, nature in all its grandeur. Sikkim was an independent kingdom till 1975, thereafter joined the Indian Territory to become the 22nd state of the Indian Union. 

Gangtok, the delightfully quaint capital, has many buildings with pagoda like roofs, and you cannot miss the presence of crimson robed monks in the bazaars.

It is entirely mountainous, with one-third of the land covered with dense forests of sal, sambal and bamboo, which are mostly inaccessible and unexploited.

The world's 3rd highest mountain - Khangchendzongna at 28,156 ft. Amidst the high peaks nestle fabulous natural lakes worshipped by the people of Sikkim and about which legends abound.Crowning many hill tops are fabled centers of Buddhist worship and learning, such as the monasteries at Rumtek, Lingdum, Enchhey and Pemayangtse, to mention only a few. 

Awe inspiring Stupas and Chortens are set amidst fluttering prayer flags and numerous prayer wheels spun by clear mountain streams tinkle melodiously to remind you that you are in the abode of the Gods. The population of Sikkim comprises three main groups of people, the Lepchas, Bhutias and Nepalese, who make up 75% of the population.

The four hour drive follows the river Teesta through some of the most picturesque terrain in the world.Leaving behind the sweltering plains of Bengal , you will quickly travel up through orchid laced subtropical jungle of the Himalayan foothills. 

Some important tourist centres are Gangtok, Bakhim, Yumthang, Dubdi, Dzongri, Varsey, Tashiding, Rumtek monastery, Pemayantse monastery, Tsomgo and Phodong monastery.Relax in one of Sikkim 's many natural hot water springs .
