Our Suggestions
  • It is one of the perfect destinations to see both - the hill station and the Indian Village.
  • The roads to Sikkim usually get closed in the month of November to the beginning of January - so make a plan to visit this place in the months before or after these months.
  • Gangtok in itself is a beautiful place - Tashi View Point, Kancgchenzonga Range, Ganesh Tok, Botanical Garden, Monastries, Hot water Springs, Rope Way are some of the most famous attractions of the place. Its a beautiful place to be in, especially in the months of May and June - the Indian Summers.
  • If you are looking for the best Chinese Food in India, then Sikkim is the best. Here they prepare it really fast and it tastes like anything. The Chinese Food variety is the largest here.
  • Though all the things are easily available in the markets of the Sikkim, keep the daily use stuff with you for the roads. It takes time to reach Sikkim and Gangtok and the roads can be jammed for hours, so if you have kids with you, keep one bag full with foodies and mineral water.
