A fairytale land indeed, Sikkim is adorned with glistening high altitude lakes, rolling green mountains, pretty rhododendron groves, azure rivers, milky waterfalls and vivid monasteries. The west-most Northeastern state of Sikkim is evidently an abode of beauty, however, it does have a window of opportunity for adventure. Not to forget, the state is famous for its incredible view of the third highest mountain in the world, Mount Kanchenjunga/Khangchendzonga.
The first glance of Sikkim tourism impresses tourists with a scenic view of chains of mountains and lush greenery. In fact, the state boasts dramatic contours that range from dense forests to barren lands and patches of meadows. The northern part of Sikkim is primarily known for its high altitude lakes like Gurudongmar, and that of a meadow called Valley of Flowers. The scenery of this part of the state is quite distinctive, and that is why it is mostly preferred by adventurers who relish trekking, camping and mountaineering here. Also, the wildlife lovers enjoy their visit to North Sikkim which houses a larger portion of famous Khangchendzonga National Park. Apart from the lofty mountains, lakes and alpine meadows, the nature lovers can get mesmerized by the awe-inspiring beauty of the meandering and scintillating rivers like Teesta and Rangit that cut and run through several popular destinations in Sikkim. The mighty cascades/waterfalls such as Seven Sisters also add the dash of surrea lness to the state, whereas the alpine mountain passes like Nathu La and Goecha La assist in adding more to the character of the heavenly place.
