Sikkim- Where Nature Smiles

Updated: Oct 10, 2020

If you are planning to visit our country’s north-east, then dive in, head first, with a 5 days rejuvenating trip to Sikkim. Unlike other cities you may need to plan ahead, depending on the time of the year as some sights may not be available. Nevertheless, there will always be picturesque scenery around you. I visited in first week of April which is considered ideal for Sikkim. A little heads-up, Sikkim is exquisitely clean and very disciplined when it comes to traffic so be prepared and fall in line.



If you are a spiritual person then start your trip with monasteries. There are quite a few of them in Gangtok. Apart from being majestic and architecturally brilliant, these monasteries will give you the much-needed peace of mind. If you have the time to visit just one of them then go to Rumtek Monastery which is 24 kms from Gangtok and largest in Sikkim . Built in 17th century, it also gives a splendid view from the top. You can spend hours here in solitude and let the positivity surround you.<
