Where Nature Smiles
Sikkim is the easternmost and smallest state in India. The dramatic changes in landscape that one encounters while traversing this Himalayan state range from dense forests to vibrant meadows to sparsely vegetated areas to breathtaking vistas of snow-capped peaks. Sikkim is undoubtedly a place people fall in love with because it is inhabited by kindhearted people who provide some of the best hospitality and boasts magnificent treks, snow activities, and picturesque views.
The Abode Of Kanchenjunga
Kanchenjunga, the state’s crowning glory and the third-highest peak in the world, is easily visible from almost anywhere. Despite having frigid winters and mild summers, the state attracts many visitors throughout the year. The government’s efforts to improve connectivity are highlighted by the recent opening of Pakyong airport close to Gangtok, the capital city.
Sikkim was a self-governing monarchy until it was merged with India in 1975. Since then, it has developed into a vital part of India, contributing to the country’s vibrant and diverse cultural landscape. The close proximity of Buddhist temples and Hindu shrines can be attributed to the harmonious coexistence of the majority Nepalese, the indigenous Bhutias, and the migrant Lepchas.
