A land where heaven touches the earth, the ambiance creates mystery, a landscape dominated by elements, silence can be heard, vision tends to travel beyond the horizon, soul starts meditating- unknowingly, the mind gets rejuvenated; and land that makes you bow.
Your journey to North Sikkim will be full of unfamiliar experiences. It will start from Gangtok, the capital of Sikkim. As your road winds upwards to North Sikkim, the landscape changes rapidly on every curve, with the thick smell of wildflowers, mossy trees, mists coiling up from the deep gorges, huge snow range embossed in the horizon, widespread valley, deep blue sky, lonely prayer flag-waving leisurely at the distant top. A trip to North Sikkim gives you a much-desired break from the madding city life.
