KI – 20 - Sikkim & Darjeeling
Long sequestered in the lap of the Himalayas, sandwiched between Nepal Bhutan
and Tibet lies a small stretch of rugged land just 40 miles by 70 miles, the erstwhile
Kingdom of Sikkim - now a state of India. Sikkim provides a wide potential in tourism
that has yet largely remained unexploited. The perennially snow-capped mountains,
lush green tropical and temperate forests, gurgling streams and the rich flora and
fauna; situated in north-east India, just south of Sikkim, Darjeeling provides the
perfect ambiance of a hill resort with its mild climate and laid back charm. Its verdant
hills and valleys are steeped in colour, and are interspersed with vast stretches of
rolling green tea gardens. Presiding over all this is Mt. Kanchanjunga, the third
highest mountain in the world, looming over the northern horizon, giving a magical
aura to the land that leaves one's senses intoxicated.
Darjeeling on the other hand is aptly names the queen of hills. And is the perfect
sojourn for those desiring to spend few days in harmony with nature. This is also the
place from where world gets the famous Darjeeling tea. Come and enjoy the small
toy train that will bring out the child in you and natural diversity that will enchant you.
