The Paradise of Eastern Himalayas.
Sikkim, hidden valley of rice or “Bayul Demojong” known locally, is one of the most enthralling spots in the Himalayan region. This tiny state of the Union territory of India is inhabited by Nepalese, Lepchas, Bhutias and Tibetans, surrounded by the Tibetan Plateau in the north, Nepal in the west, Bhutan in the east and west Bengal along its southern border. The world’s third highest mountain Khangchendzonga (8,586m), which falls in Nepal, is accessible from this remote mountain region as well.
Sikkim, through the passage of time, has retained its original character and preserves its glorious cultural heritage. Sikkim unrolls most exciting of beautiful carpets for adventure trekkers. That is why a thoughtfully planned trek to Sikkim is rightly classified as a very special outing for those who are fond of Himalayan flora & fauna.

Location :Located in between the Kingdom of Nepal in the west and Bhutan to the east, Sikkim covers an area of about 7300 sq. km. (2800 sq. miles). Once a tiny Himalayan Kingdom, with a monarchy, is now metamorphosed as one of the states of India. Reaching from a low of 250m (800ft) above sea level up to a permanently frozen 8,586m (28,167ft) Mt Khangchendzonga, Sikkim nurtures ecosystems of nearly every elevation strata. The Khangchendzonga can be seen from almost any part of Sikkim, thrusting its mighty shoulders high above the lush verdant valleys. Sikkim is also world renowned for its orchids with over 600 species in and around the region. This orchid sanctuary in Gangtok displays over 200 species.
