Romantic Sikkim Tour
The weather in Kalimpong is so beautiful that it feels like it’s forever ready to welcome its visitors, knowing that they must have had a hectic life and are here for a holiday. The snow-capped mountains, the pristine air and the lush green surrounding, make Kalimpong one of the ideal places where your search for peace and solace ends. The place is very simple in its way of living and is always wrapped with warmth because of the behaviour of the local people who are very open and friendly in nature.
Gangtok is the capital of Sikkim, has an aura that’s a mixture of modernity and cultures. On the one hand, the place is a major attraction for youths because of the markets and the crowded life. On the other hand the place also never seems very crowded no matter how many tourists visit it. The monasteries and temples in Gangtok also talk about the spiritual and ancient cultures that are still kept intact.
Well, when it comes to Darjeeling and Mirik, the existence of the Nepali culture, the beauty of the place being surrounded by lakes, mountains, toy trains and tea gardens is unimaginable.
