    Cover - Shraddha trip to sikkim

    With its offbeat location and meditative, ancient monasteries, the best of Himalaya’s hidden secrets is simply the destination you were dreaming about. Nestled amongst snow-capped peaks and filled with picturesque landscapes, this destination is much more than you would ask for. Being a mountain kingdom in itself till the 1970s this quaint hill station in the north-east with its lush green alpine forests and rich cultural heritage will certainly make you feel the closest to nature you can ever be and that’s exactly what Shraddha and her friends wanted.

    We wanted to get away. Life was becoming extremely monotonous and we all with our busy schedules couldn’t find much time to catch up. That’s how we decided to take this trip to Sikkim in April for 5 days. For we were sick and tired of our life being the same old routine so when we started thinking and shortlisting locations we all knew we wanted an offbeat location, away from the crowds, a place which would serve as an escape from reality. That’s how we arrived at Sikkim. We were already aware of the fact that Sikkim’s weather in April is absolutely amazing and that Sikkim’s food is brilliant and we said Sikkim it is!

    This was our favourite experience from our trip to Sikkim in April for 5 days. From the very drive to lachen through the beautiful Chungthang where the way in itself was giving natural beauty a new definition. We reached the Royal Lachen Hotel by evening and we can’t describe how clean the rooms were and how awesome was the services we received. The hotel staff was very helpful and courteous and they provided room service which we felt was an added bonus. The dinner they served was delicious too.

    Another if the unforgettable experience that we had in Sikkim was visiting the snow capped mountains at Thangu. The experience we had was one of the best we had till date. Although we had heard a lot about how great snowfall in Sikkim is we didn’t get a chance to experience it. However, playing on the snow compensated. The next big thing for the day was visiting Lachung which was the main highlight from our trip to Sikkim in April for 5 days. We tried zip lining for the first time and what an experience it was!

    3. An Exciting Day At Gangtok

    clicked beautiful shots
    absolutely amazing fun and thrill experience

    As our tour guide suggested we stuck to places in North Sikkim. The day we spent at the state capital was really exciting. There was a downpour when we reached the place but the rain in Gangtok never stopped us from exploring the city and it’s many attractions. We zip lined which gave us the whole view of the city and it was breathtaking. We also tried out shopping in Gangtok and purchased some cute souvenirs. Needless to say the restaurants in Sikkim are absolutely amazing and the one we had our dinner at in Gangtok became our instant favourite.
