Sikkim

Sikkim – the Himalayan Paradise

The Indian state Sikkim is one of the most admired tourist destinations for its exotic locations. Whatever the purpose of the tour is, Sikkim fulfils it completely. It shares border with Indian state West Bengal, and neighbouring countries Bhutan, Nepal and Tibet. So naturally Sikkim, with its capital town Gangtok, gained the essence of all four countries and is an internationally important place with diversity in everything. Interesting is that Sikkim has different official languages including Hindi, English, Sikkimese, Nepali, Lepcha, Rai etc.

There are different legends behind the naming of Sikkim. One says it is mentioned as ‘Indrakil’ meaning the ‘garden of Lord Indra’ in history. The Tibetan name ‘Drenjong’, which means the ‘valley of rice’, represents the agricultural importance of this place. Another version tells that in Lepcha language it is called as ‘Nye-mae-el’ meaning ‘paradise’.


Places to Visit in Sikkim

Trip in Pelling doesn’t only offer mesmerising landscape of picturesque beauty, but also attracting locations like Rabdentse Ruins, Khecheopalri Lake, Kanchenjunga Waterfall, Reshi Hot Spring etc.

Situated almost 54 km east from Gangtok town, there is an open trading pass between Tibet and Indian state of Sikkim, named as Nathu La Pass providing stunning view of snowy Himalayan peaks that is beyond explanation.

Tourists find the surrounding of this lake as a paradise-like site. Located at 5400 meters above the sea level, this lake is a must-to-go spot for tourists, especially the ones who crave for adventure and excitement.

The Rumtek Monastery area is referred to as the Dharmachakra Centre. It is situated at 1500 m altitude and 25 km away from Gangtok. The shrines and monastery is very much significant from the aspect of Buddhism, particularly to the Tibetan Buddhists.

The Himalayan forest in the lap of Mt Kanchenjunga is a hub and home to preserve the endangered animals like red panda, leopard cat, Himalayan tahr etc, 127 kinds of birds, and other reptiles, mammals, flowers and plants.

This glacier lake is around 40 km away from Gangtok and visited by several tourists each year. The surrounding pace is famous for bird-watching. Situating in 3780 meters of altitude, Tsomgo Lake becomes completely frozen in summer.

Singba Rhododendron Sanctuary is situated on the Yumthang Valley beside the River Yumthang. The landscape of 40 different species of rhododendron trees are scattered here and in the April and May months, it looks like a colour palette.

Road towards Mt Katao is pretty laborious and so leisure tourists usually do not visit the place. And that is why the adventure lovers love to have a trekking trip to this place. After arriving at the point, a breath taking view will leave you jaws dropped.

Reshi thermal spring in North Sikkim, around 24 km from Gyalshing on the bank of Rangeet River, is regularly visited by tourists, who take bath here for its medicinal value with high sulphur, capable of curing some skin disease.
