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

      A very well-coordinated trip, the itinerary was planned in accordance with respect to our preferences and even when certain changes had to be made owing to climatic conditions our preferences were given importance. The hotels in all destinations were excellent, especially the staff of each hotel were amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip. The only negative was probably the inexperienced driver, who could not guide as properly but he also made up for lack of knowledge with his committment and made sure we got our flights on time although there was landslide. Overall an excellent experience and would surely recommend to everyone.

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      The journey to Gangtok was a memorable one thanks mostly to Zippi. Since ours was an LTC journey it was point to point and we centred it around Gangtok instead of making a circuit of Pelling and Darjeeling. Thanks to Zippi they made a viable plan that included our priorities Nathu La and Monasteries. They got the necessary passes for Nathu La and Baba Mandir which was a big relief. We wanted a luxury vehicle in that mountainous terrain and the Innova they provided was a real good choice. The rates too were quite accommodative. The only spoil sport was the driver and his attitude. He was behaving as if we are in his debt and was more eager to end each day's trip and return. This not to speak of the rough driving which upset my wife to no less extent. That latter part may be pardonable as we understand all these mountain drivers are like this though the one who drove in between had better skills. Maybe Zippi should test whom they are entrusting before they assign the task. I feel like discoursing about the agency so much as we outsiders walk into a blind alley when selecting an agency on whom we depend a lot. But except this fact Zippi was a real good choice. Their person had come to meet us at the airport when we arrived at Bagdogra and maybe I would have been happier had their contact met us at the airport when we were leaving, at least to find out how things were. Nathu La and Rumtek Monastery with Emchey Monastery were indeed the highlights of the trip and not to be missed. I would surmise with the following grading on a scale from 1 to 10. Agency contact person - 8 Vehicle - 8 Tour Planning - 7 Driver who managed at Gangtok for all the five days we were there - 4 Zippi overall grading - 8 Those who plan to travel to Gangtok All The Best. Thanks Zippy and Travel Triangle who collated the quotes for me. Unnikrishnan Menon

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      Ride to Zuluk pass was one memorable trip to cherish. Ppl at both stays and driver was very hospitable and friendly. Mr Rukesh is an excellent driver. Stay at Gangtok (Den homestay) was very good and food was very delicious and very healthy too. Given the resources in zuluk, snowlion homestay did justice to food and living. Snow lion room and food was average. Overall the trip was exciting and I would recommend travel triangle for my friends. Paragliding and ride to Zuluk pass
