This teeny-weeny Sikkim is a another hot travel

of India, a veritable treasure house of some of the world most beautiful streams, lakes
and waterfalls. When travelers arrive to see toy train in
Darjeeling, they usually overlook this peaceful place called Sikkim. But this time if you are planning to visit
east India, come to Sikkim. Trip to Sikkim could be one’s life changing
experience. From a simple tours experience to mountain
trekking, everything seems fun. No more hustle and bustle of daily metropolis
life, just pure tranquility. Places to visit : Monasteries : If you are a spiritual person
like myself, you can follow the footsteps of Lord Buddha. Sikkim has been blessed with numerous monasteries,
you can explore the Buddhist art and culture, or just enlighten your soul with enchanting
Buddhist mantras. Around Gangtok : Gangtok is the capital of
Sikkim, today this town has grown into some giant peace of white blanket, which looks
like mountain of houses from the opposite hill. But still this town holds numerous attraction
for the tourists. Most of the Buddhist monasteries are located
here, such places are Enchey Monastery, Rumtek Monastery, and most important one is Namgyal
Institute of Tibetology, where you get to see years old Buddhist arts and artifacts. View of Kanchanjunga is also splendid from
Tashi view point of Gangtok. There are many other places such as Ganesh
tok, Hanuman tok, Banjhakri falls etc. Changu (Tsomgo) Lake : It is the most popular destination for the tourist. Just 30 to 40 km from Gangtok, this Lake is
has altitude of 12,310 ft. Goechala Trekking : I talked about life changing
experience earlier, well this trekking could be the ultimate life changing experience for
anyone. Trekking could last for 8 to 9 days. After a successful trekking, one could see
the entire Kanchandzonga range, it really feels like heaven on earth. Other Trekking : There are numerous trekking
routes within Sikkim, the better idea is to find a good (native) travel guide. A good travel guide can answer almost all
your question about the Sikkim. How to get to Sikkim : This may be unfortunate
but, all foreigners are required to obtain Inner Line Permit to visit Sikkim for unknown
reason. But it is easy to obtain from tourism Offices
at New Delhi, Kolkatta. Nearest airport for Sikkim is Bagdogra in
North Bengal which is 120 kms and approximately 3, 4 hour drive. Another alternative is NJP railway station,
which is also in North Bengal, the distance is 140kms from Sikkim.
