About Sikkim

Small but beautiful, Sikkim is situated in the Eastern Himalayas. “The land of orchids”, “The land of tranquility”, these are the few ways in which Sikkim has been described. Infact in all its manisfestations Sikkim has been projected as a naturalist’s paradise. A tourist visiting Sikkim is all praises for the richness in nature which no doubt has been the basic ingredient of tourism in Sikkim. It is here that Khanchendzonga-the third highest mountain in the world stands tall. Blessed with snowcapped mountains, lakes, rivers and varieties of flora and fauna Sikkim is in par with other ecological hotspots of the world. Eco-tourism is the buzzword and Government, NGO’S and individuals have all geared up for contributing to it.
