The Kangchen-Dzonga Range was visible every morning from the flat we were staying in gangtok, for 5 days. We had clear mornings and the view was beautiful everytime :)

“We live only to discover beauty. All else is a form of waiting.” ~ Khalil Gibran (1883-1931)

The prayer flags donned the Sikkim landscape creating in you a sense of calm and respect for the unseen. Prayers are believed to be blown in the wind as the prayer flags blow strongly on hillsides.

The joy of travelling is seeing heartening smiles from kids ready to love you and the world around them. These were Lepcha kids in a hostel run by a dynamic 70+ lady called Ms. Kippu. It was amazing how many people knew her :)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Breathtaking sights and beautiful wild flowers
  • Cons:The driving is scary, but then you're reminded it's India
  • In a nutshell:I would love to travel there again and see more of the places I didn't get to see. Definitely a place which will come up nicely. Nice people make a nice place.

    One of the very nice page on Sikkim. Yes it will be an advantage if you have your own vehicle. But thy dont allow your own vehicle to travel around Sikkim but I think you meant the hired vehicle for days you stay.

    Very interesting Eid in Sikkim. Wish you a very Happy Eid to you, your friends and family. This year, I managed to celebrate Eid with my family in Singapore. Abu
