Sikkim -The hidden Paradise

After reached Bagdogra Airport(WB), however it was a starting summer heat about 36 degrees and we've started our drive to Gangtak (Capital of Sikkim). on the way we have witnessed beautiful Landscapes and the TEESTA River stream between the mountains that takes your breath away. “Ney-Mayel-Lyang” it’s called Hidden Paradise that cuddles the Teesta river and the southern borders with Rangit and Rangpo Rivers. This place has its own charm with its magnificent landscapes and the water falls. If you go to Sikkim, you will see many falls on the way and Snow covered mountains and valleys. Colorful prayer flags give life to those serene mountains. Buddha Monasteries are everywhere that fascinate you to feel the beauty of nature. The land is dwelling of intense landscape beauty, saturated with mystic atmosphere, holy lakes, ancient monasteries, condescending mountain peaks and many trekking routes is available. it was a memorable trip for me as well as for my guests. 

Sikkim can be segregated in 3 or 4 parts as you travel there. 

Somewhere in North Sikkim
East Sikkim which will take at least 2 days’ voyage to complete. there you can see Nathula Pass (Indo-China border), Baba temple which is not a God's or Goddess's temple but it’s an Army officer's memorial which is now become a temple for everyone and every individual offers respect and salute. this place is situated an escalation of around 14000 ft. from the see level. the serenity and the tranquility of that place is magnificent and heart taking. you can actually feel the sacrifice of our brave Indian Soldiers who martyred at the border post during war. on the way to Nathula Pass you can see Tsomgo Lake, also known as Tsongmo Lake or Changu Lake, it is a glacial lake in the East Sikkim. Inner Line Permit required for East Sikkim.

Zero point
For North Sikkim you will need at least 3 days’ time, if your schedule allows, otherwise 2 days required to roam in this circuit. From Gangtak you have to drive to Lachung which is Around 6/7 hours’ mountain drive. Sharing taxis are available from Gangtak Stand, but again you have to get the Inner Line Permit for North Sikkim, it is advisable that when you travel get some reputed tour operator just to make sure that your voyage is easier in all factors. This way you can save money and time while travelling. There are Many places you can halt and see during this tour. Zero Point, Yumthang Valley, Lachen, Buddhist Holy Lake or Gurudongmar Lake and many more places you don’t want to miss.

South Sikkim is a simple tour which includes Buddhist monasteries. Temples, Buddha Park, Char Dham (replica of four abodes or sites in India which are revered by Hindu religion). By covering all those places, you can get down to Darjeeling(WB) and spend one or two nights there. In Darjeeing you can visit tiger hills in the morning to see the sunrise and the Kanchanzunga Mountain. Apart from these there are some trek sites where many adventurer and explorer can travel. I hope this information will help people to explore Sikkim.
