Sikkim - Places of Interest

Going around Sikkim, it's easy to forget there's a world outside. There are places where one may find inner healing and solace from the madness of modern existence while there are many opportunities for adventures as well. There are many joys in the things to see and do in Sikkim. http://www.travel-sikkim.com/

It is great to backpack alone but sometimes we just need a companion to enjoy the moment with. So, the next time when you are in Sikkim spend a day with us. We could drive to Institute of Tibetology, Drodrul Chorten, Enchey Monastery, visit the Flower Nursery, Government handicraft shop and windup at M.G Marg. How does that sound, interested?
