Overview

Sikkim, the gateway to North-eastern India lies in the middle of rugged snowy mountains, flower clad valleys, desirable frozen lakes, the robust Kanchenjunga range, and forest reserves is a dream come true for every traveller. 

There are remarkable Tibetan styled delicacies and with spiritual chanting everywhere (om-mani-padme-hum) Sikkim has every reason of having an impact on each visitor with a nature personification.

This tour take you to one of most fascinating states in India, where you will explore some of highest lakes of India - with their crystal clear blue water surrounded by snow laden mountains at one side, and barren mountains hugging the lake from another side are a treat to the eyes. You'll also explore the alpine rich vegetation in Chopta valley, Yumthang valley.
