Sikkim

Nature At Its Best

Sikkim is a state in Northeast India that borders China in its north and east, Bhutan in its east, Nepal in its west and the Indian state of West Bengal in its south. It is also located close to the Siliguri Corridor near Bangladesh. Sikkim is the least populous and second smallest among the Indian states. This state is a multi-ethnic and a multilingual state that offers diverse population of people that come from various backgrounds. Sikkim accounts for the largest share of cardamom production in India, and is the world’s second largest producer of the spice after Guatemala. Sikkim achieved its ambition to convert its agriculture to fully organic over the interval 2003 to 2016, which makes it the first state in India to achieve this distinction.

Sikkim is also one of the most travelled states of India as it offers a variety and vicinity that brings multicultural backgrounds together in a package. Sikkim was its own mountain kingdom till 1975 and still holds a distinctive personality than any other. The meditative and mural filled traditional monasteries of the Tibetan culture co-exist with the Hindu Shrines of the Nepali community in the most peaceful way.

This is mainly because of the immediacy of the two places as well as easy access. And while in Gangtok, tourists visit several other places in Sikkim. Actually the whole of Sikkim is divided into 4 zones – East, West, North and South. There are magnificent places to visit in each of these zones. Other than Gangtok, East Sikkim has great attractions such as Tsomgo Lake, Baba Mandir, Nathula Pass etc. West Sikkim is home to wonderful tourist places like Pelling, Yuksum, Kaluk and more. The beautiful flower valley Yumthang and the largest high-altitude lake Gurudongmar are located in north Sikkim. Sikkim is in fact a place to visit the blend of cultures and symbolism that all comprise this state in India.
