Darjeeling & Sikkim
Darjeeling is a small hill station in the North of West Bengal. The place offers serene atmosphere and a superb view of the Kanchenjunga . The state of Sikkim is further North of Darjeeling and is perhaps one of the most tranquil places on earth. Sikkim offers wonderful trekking routes and is almost pollution free to a very serious degree.
Darjeeling is packed with wonderful aesthetic points as well as interesting places for people of varied taste. Lofty mountain terrains and cascading rivers offer adventurous sports like trekking, mountaineering and rafting. Adventurous people from all over the world come to Darjeeling to enjoy trekking. Sandakphu, situated at an altitude of 11,929 ft. and 57 kilometers from Darjeeling, is a wonderful trekking place surrounded by bewitching scenery along winding roads.
An independent kingdom before 1975, this "last Shangri-La" (forbidden place), really forbidden to the outside world for decades, Sikkim - the second smallest state of India lying in the North-East - is now open to you with all its abiding charms.
