      We traveled to this beautiful destination in February and Sikkim cheerfully welcomed us with shining sun and extremely pleasant weather in the day time.

      1. Lachung – Where We Spent A Day Amidst Snow And Waterfalls

      Lachung

      The roads to this glorious mountain village were nestled among the valleys and rivers. This journey itself was so peaceful and serene that it almost made us feel like we are roaming around a foreign land. Our escapade to Lachung place was certainly worth it. En route Lachung we took a short trip to Singhik view point and the proud snow-capped mountains sitting in the lap of puffy clouds left our jaws dropped till the ground. Pristine waterfalls in Lachung were enough to take our tiredness and fatigue from the long drive away.

      2. Enchey Monastery – The Most Peaceful Place In The State

The tall pine trees, flowery meadows, and mesmerizing views of the Kanchenjunga hills were extremely soul-soothing and made our Sikkim tour for couples even better.

      Food In Sikkim

      We think that one of the best ways to get in touch with the authenticity of a state is via the food and Sikkim food is to die for. The dish that we devoured almost every day on our eight days long honeymoon trip was hot, fresh, and delicious momos. We couldn’t get enough of how tasty they are. We mostly indulged in the enticing, freshly-made, authentic street food including fish, Thenthuk, Thukpa and fruit salads from the local vendors.

Located right across the border in Nepal, shopping in this market can get a little difficult to avoid. We bought a number of winter clothing and cosmetics at very economical rates which made this experience even better. Other shopping markets that one can drop by on their honeymoon trip to Sikkim include Lal Bazaar and MG Marg. Tibetan carpets, decorative artifacts, handicrafts, woolens, and souvenirs are a few things that visitors can spend their money on.

      The harsh and bitter weather surrounding the atmosphere in Sikkim in February calls for everything woolen and thick that one can find in their wardrobe. The temperatures might fall down to as low as 2 degrees Celsius and thus February tends to get really cold in Sikkim. So when planning the Sikkim tour for couples during the winter season, it is advised that one pack thermal inner wears, jackets, caps, mufflers, gloves, and warm socks along. For footwear, it is suggested that one carries a pair of comfortable and warm shoes. For taking a trip to the Zero Point in Yumthang Valley, one should definitely pack long overcoats, knee-high boots, and other significant snow gear to avoid any kind of frostbite.
