Sikkim - Perched in the lap of the Eastern Himalayas, bounded by some of the highest mountain peaks, amidst spectacular terrain, pristine lakes, luxuriant forests, roaring rivers and gentle streams, SIKKIM is a veritable paradise and a destination for all seasons.

Formerly a kingdom, since 1975 it has been a tiny land -locked province to India. Seventy percent of the landscape is still untouched by the modern civilization.

Highlighting a visit to Sikkim are the stunning monasteries which form an integral part of Sikkim: it is here that Gods mix with the mortals. Built in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition (Nyingma and Kargyu sects), set amidst thick forests and on isolated hilltops, these monasteries are host to a number of festivals, which are singular experience in pomp and pageantry.
