“Wonders do come in small packages!”, and if you want to witness this, you must visit the picturesque state of Sikkim. Tucked away in the lap of the magical Himalayas, though it is the second smallest state in the country, its prismatic beauty, and mesmeric charm will make you wonder!
Sikkim, located in the northeastern region is the smallest state in India. Traveling across this Himalayan state is particularly highlighted by the dramatic contouring of the scenery from thick woodlands to colorful meadows to a few barren patches to the panoramic views of the snowcapped mountains. Occupied by warm-hearted people offering some of the best hospitality and boasting of magnificent treks, snow activities, and scenic views, Sikkim is truly a destination people fall in love with!
The third highest peak in the world and jewel of the state, Kanchenjunga is visible from almost anywhere you stand. Characterized by freezing winters and cool summers, the state plays host to a large number of tourists all year round.
Accessible mainly via road from the neighboring states, the newly inaugurated Pakyong airport near the capital city of Gangtok highlights government efforts towards better connectivity.
