Places to Visit in Sikkim

Soothe your tired nerves in the lush natural landscapes of the landlocked Himalayan kingdom of Sikkim in the Northeast.  This is the perfect place to unwind with Mother Nature as there are snow-clad mountain peaks and forested valleys all around. Visit this picturesque beauty of a state whose charm and appeal will leave you spellbound. The best time to visit Sikkim is from March to June and from December to February. There are many places to visit in Sikkim like Tsomgo Lake, Yuksom,  Nathula Pass, Lachung, Lachen and Yumthang Valley, Ravangla, Namchi and much much more!

Start by exploring the alluring natural beauty of the capital city of Sikkim, Gangtok. The majestic silver-fir trees and endless walking trails make this city a scenic sight to behold.  Located on a cloudy ridge that lies 5,500 feet above sea level, you will also get beautiful views of the Khangchendzonga mountain range from here. This is among the Sikkim points of interest  as you will encounter serene beauty, gurgling rivers, lush forests, and mental peace here. If you love adventure, there is plenty to do here like paragliding, river rafting, cable car rides, mountain biking and much more! You can spend the day by the Jhakri Falls and Kyongnosla Water Falls, go on a yak ride and enjoy the bird eye view from the ropeway in this capital city.

Just about about 38 kilometers away from Gangtok, lies one of the best places to visit in Sikkim, the Tsomgo lake. The turquoise waters of this beautiful lake is filled with migratory ducks like Brahmini, gorgeous flowers like Blue and Yellow Poppies, Primulas, and Irish and scenic mountains all around the shores. You can go on pony and yak rides all around this lake and watch the azure skies above. Explore the beauty of this lake in winters when it gets frozen and perfectly reflects the natural beauty all around.

If you are looking for some peace and solitude, head to the Sikkim tourist spot Yuksom whose rustic charm and appeal will enthrall you. You can visit the historic Norbugang Park, the Tashi tenka palace, the oldest monastery Dubdi Gompa, the Kathok Wodsalin Gompa as well as the Khangchendzonga National Park.

Besides this, the Nathula Pass is one of the must-visit places to visit in Sikkim as you can go on a yak safari here, view the border Gates of India and China and explore the beautiful war memorial. This pass is the link between India and Tibet and offers some of the most scenic sights possible at a very high altitude.

For those who love the beauty of snow capped mountains and flowering rhododendron blooms, the Lachung, Lachen and Yumthang Valley are definitely worth visiting. Trekking up here will also take you to the gorgeous Gurudongmar Lake that gets frozen in winters. There are also several monasteries and villages en route that make for some picturesque views.

Some other famous places in Sikkim include Pelling, Ravangla, Rumtek Monastery, Namchi, Zuluk and Do-Drul Chorten. There are several more places you can explore on a sightseeing trip of Sikkim so pack your bags and head here now for an enjoyable trip!

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      Lachen hotel was below average..it could be improved. I don't know why they have charged extra for zero point, even they didn't paid for permit. Last two days of my trip was the best one, specially Yamthang valley mad zero point. It was awesome experience traveling through Travel triangle and hopefully will get much improved services in future.

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      That was a memorable trip for us, indeed spent a great time over there. I want to share few things about the travel agent. Cab drivers were good and on the time everyday.  Of course the 2 star hotels were booked but not up to the standards( bathroom n small room)@, especially in gangtok. When I discussed this with lungba travels, their response was not good and saying this s the hotel u get for 2 stars. Deepak from lungba travels not contacting us till Eve( he should say timings, should brief about locality n issues), instead blaming us at the end of the day if we get late. He just share my no with driver and his no with mine. Rest he is not bothered off. On 8th June we were suppose to go lachung( My dream to visit the place, I told him before the trip begins). Due to weather conditions it got cancelled. This he confirmed at around 10 in morning. I asked him to do tshangu lake today and lachung Tomo. he was not ready, but he could have made this. we come from so far places just to see and  cherish the moments. Instead we went for local site seeing and tat was disappointing.  When I more insisted him to make lachung next day, he raised the point of refund of 9k something. What I would do taking this amount for two days going from such a long distance. Totally this person is pathetic. He gave us itenary of more than 10 places, we could not able to do this due to traffic n other things. We we're not asking him for not covering everything but he used to say " apne marji see gumne ke like nahi Diya gaadi". If we reach late. At least travel agent should take responsibility. I understand like weather and we can't do anything. But there are things beyond this and in his hands that he can do. Should have plans if one thing goes wrong to make correct.  Totally travel agent attitude and responses we're not at all good.  They committed to provide one day candle night dinner, but failed. It was a disappointing trip for us totally. Feel responsible, don't blame weather for everything. I chosed this travels based on the trust of travel triangle and reviews I heard from my friends. But it was a bad experience for us. I don't recommend this travel agent to anyone. Expecting u to take some actions on this and let others don't face the same. Thank you. Had a great time intshangu lake and nathula pass

      Pulin Samantray, Bhubaneswar, India I and my family have had a 3N/4D package tour of Gangtok, Sikkim. We have had a fabulous time spent along with beautiful weather conditions from 7th to 10th June,2019. Though due to constraints we could not visit the Nathula pass , otherwise we had great trip to Gangtok. Stay in the Summit Denzong Hotel & Spa at MG market was very pleasant with hotel service excellent. Barring few minutes late arrival of the Taxi on the penultimate day of departure rest of travel was by confident drivers cum guide. Mr Sanjiv Sharma of Zippi Trip was always at our calls away and readily helped any issue with his very polite and warm welcoming voice and resources. Also I would like to thank the two drivers cum guide (Rohit & brother) who negotiated the curves of the hilly terrain with supple skills and confidence of timing.Overall a fantastic trip we enjoyed as a family trip at Gangtok. look forward to avail in future for travel in India and abroad. Already one of my Sharjah colleague availed a Kerala Trip from your franchise by my input. Keep the good work and service up. Best of luck. Regards.

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      It was an average tour. Hotels or lodges were quite average or below. Getting good food is anyways difficult in Lachen, Lachung, so no complaints regarding that. Expected cooperation was definitely lacking when conditions were not favorable enough and change in plan was required. Undue amounts were also charged. But since we did not have any other option, and could not argue, we had to pay them. One of the drivers was skilled but the other was not up to the mark. All of them behaved the same way. Overall we faced issue with the points of coordination and trip could have been made much better.
