Nepal-Darjeeling-Sikkim Tour

SIKKIM, This small erstwhile Himalayan in the northeastern frontier of India, is wedged between China, Nepal, Bhutan and the sleepy Darjeeling district. Remote, wild and unbelievable, the small state tucked in the eastern Himalayas is an experience simply out of the world. Catch the sunrise atop the mighty Kanchenjunga, visit ancient Buddhist monasteries and tea gardens, enjoy a nature walk, or relax amidst peaceful environs of emerald green. Merged into the Indian republic in 1975, Sikkim offers the magical feel of a Himalayan fairytale land. It has everything you need to relax the body and revive the human spirit.

It is an amazing place of hidden valleys, mystical monasteries, and snow fed mountains covered with rare flora and fauna. A collage of three distinct ethnic groups - Lepchas, Bhutias and Nepalese - this former kingdom is a colorful melange of distinctively flavored cultures.
