Sikkim Culture Tour
surrounded by mountains and nature in the beautiful North Eastern State of India that’s Sikkim. From Gangtok to Lachen and Lachung, it’s a fine blend of culture, spirituality and modernity. When you reach Gangtok, it seems as if you have got the boot camp of adventures that will be a part of the trip to the places in the store ahead. The monasteries and temples in Gangtok also talk about the spiritual and ancient cultures that are still intact, while the marketplace like M.G. Marg has all you would get attracted to as a youth.
Lachen’s major attraction is the Seven Sister’s fall that will make you believe in the creation’s beauty and how perfect nature can look. Lachung, on the other hand, is a paradise of flowers and flourished villages. The mixture of Tibetian and Nepali cultures in these places offer a wide variety of handicrafts and food that you will never get on the planes.
Thus your 6 nights/ 7 days tour in this place is worth it as you will get to explore areas that are less visited and not much known to people. Moreover, you will get to see the real Sikkim from the local people’s perspective as well.
