About

While most of the state is commercialized, West Sikkim has still kept its rich culture and heritage alive.


Sikkim is one of the prominent destination for travel enthusiasts because of the Himalayas, gorging waterfalls, snow-capped mountains, monasteries, flora and fauna. Not to forget the authentic momos and sumptuous thupka. Gangtok on the other hand, the capital of Sikkim and Tibetan Buddhist centre, is situated at an altitude of 5500 feet above sea level and on the Eastern Himalayan Range. The view of Kanchenjunga from Gangtok is awe-inspiring.


The question is, are you coming?

Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Namchi
Pick up from Bagdogra Airport at 01:00 PM and reach Namchi via taxi. Enter the most beautiful state of India – Sikkim. Start this memorable trip in a musical way. Once you reach the hotel in Namchi, after some rest, its the time for Karaoke! Sing your heart out with the local host - Minu.

Day 2: Namchi to Pelling
After breakfast, start your journey. Visit Char Dham in Namchi and Buddha Park in Rawangla. With a breathtaking backdrop of Himalayan Peaks, this gigantic, 41m-tall Buddha statue contains holy relics from 11 countries. After lunch at a local place in Rawangla, take the mesmerizing route to Pelling, appreciating the beauty of this natural wonder.

Day 3: Pelling - Kanchenjunga Falls and Khecheopalri Lake
This day, visit the majestic Kanchenjunga Falls and Khecheopalri Lake. A quiet and serene pathway takes you through sometimes steep and winding roads of the hills. If weather permits, you will get to trek up to a hidden, untouched and pure waterfall which was discovered on the last trip and was named "Pawan Falls," after the guy who helped find it. In case the weather is not good for this trek, you will visit a local NGO and spend some quality time with these cute, naughty kids in the school.

Day 4: Pelling
Head to Sing-Shore Bridge. It’s the highest suspension bridge in Sikkim. The downward view from this bridge is overwhelming with the sight of beautiful waterfalls and breathtaking views of the green hillsides. Next on the list is the archaeological site - Rabdentse Ruins and Pemayangtse Monastery. In the evening, trek for around 3 km to see one of the most beautiful monasteries and the astounding views of Pelling while trekking up.

Day 5: Pelling to Gangtok
Leave towards Gangtok. On the way, pay a visit to Rumtek Monastery. Rumtek is the largest monastery in Sikkim and was built-in the 16th century. Nestled amongst verdant mountains, distant snow peaks and flowing streams around it, you will see prayers underway with rows of monks sitting together, chanting the sacred Buddhist texts. In the evening, check out the famous MG Market and indulge in some local shopping.

Day 6: Gangtok
Do some local sightseeing of Gangtok. Visit Ganesh Tok, Himalayan Zoological Park, Hanuman Tok, Bakthang Waterfalls, and Tashi View Point. Once you are back from sightseeing, just walk around Gandhi Chowk and explore the local city on your own.

Day 7: Gangtok - Nathu La Pass and Changu Lake
Visit the beautiful and holy Tsomgo or Changu Lake which is just 5 Km from the China border. Next stop is the mighty mountain pass of Nathu La and Baba Mandir. Nathu La pass is considered as one of the highest motorable mountain passes in the world.
