Overview

Sikkim is located in the northeastern part of India, in the eastern Himalayas. It is one of the smallest states in India - Clean, green and 'all organic' since 2016. Sikkim is mostly a maze of plunging, super-steep valleys thick with lush subtropical woodlands and rhododendron groves, rising in the north to the spectacular white-top peaks of the eastern Himalaya.

Explore the lush green alpine valleys, majestic waterfalls and old-fashioned bridges. Gurudongmar Lake, situated at an elevation of 17,100 feet (5148 meters), rests on the northern side of the Khangchengyao Range, in a high plateau area next to the Tibetan Plateau. No words can describe the pristine beauty of this Lake. This makes Sikkim a must-do travel destination.

It is definitely an adventure of a lifetime!
