Enjoy the Adventure

In northeast India, Sikkim is one of the most well-known tourist destinations. High altitude lakes, sweeping green mountains, vibrant rhododendron groves, aqua rivers, milky waterfalls, stunning monasteries, and unrivaled views of Mt. Kanchenjunga/ Khangchendzonga, the third highest mountain in the world, are all scattered throughout its magnificent landscape. Four districts—North, South, East, and West—comprise the state. Gangtok (East Sikkim), Mangan (North Sikkim), Namchi (South Sikkim), and Gyalshing (West Sikkim) are the four district capitals. Gangtok serves as the state's capital. Tourists can find something distinctive in each of these neighborhoods. Sikkim also has a vibrant culture, which is evident in its towns, monasteries, celebrations, and food. Both the people's traditional attire and the structures constructed in the traditional architectural style are fascinating. There is peaceful coexistence between various cultures, traditions, and customs from various communities. The Lepcha, Bhutia, and Nepalese tribes make up the three major groups. The locals hold that the mountains, rivers, and forests of the area are home to the spirits of the land. In its daily lives, nature plays a significant role. Attending its renowned fairs and festivals is one way to gain an understanding of its rich cultural heritage. A few of the well-known ones are Dentam Rhododendron Kagyed Dance, Saga Dawa, Losar, Jorthan Magey, Losoong, and Bhumchu. Masked dances performed by lamas dressed in vibrant robes and accessories are a common feature of Sikkim's well-known festivals. The glistening jewelry, drumming, trumpeting, and swords really raise the spirits, almost to the point of euphoria.

Itinerary

We have carefully planned out each day to give you the best possible experience. From exploring historic landmarks to tasting delicious local cuisine, each day is packed with adventure and excitement. Join us as we take you on a journey through some of the most fascinating destinations in the world.

Report to the sprawling Siliguri city, which serves as our entryway to Sikkim. We will make our first stopover in Gangtok. The breathtaking scenery and amazing roads add to the toast. As we leave the foothills of Siliguri, the River Teesta will join us shortly. The winding roads that are characteristic of any mountainous area will lead to a city that is not only spit-free but also litter-free (It exists and is “in” India!). Being able to stay in India’s cleanest city must be a wonderful experience. Dine and stay at the hotel.

Start your journey to Lachen after breakfast, taking in the sights along the way. Take a break at scenic locations like Singhik View Point, Naga Waterfalls, The Confluence of Lachen Chu and Lachung Chu at Chungthang, and Bhim Nala Waterfall while you’re traveling. Witnessing the dove-white Kanchendzonga (Kanchenjunga) ascending into the sky is a treat. Dine and stay at the hotel after arrival.

Early in the morning, after breakfast, travel to Gurudongmar Lake, one of the world’s and India’s highest lakes. It is situated in the Indian state of Sikkim at an elevation of 17,800 feet (5,430 meters), making it one of the world’s and India’s highest lakes. Gurudongmar is a lake that Buddhists, Sikhs, and Hindus regard as sacred, and the drive there takes in the beauty of Thangu Valley. Guru Padmasambhava, also known as Guru Rinpoche, is honored with a lake bearing his name. Going back to the hotel. Take a drive to Lachung after lunch. Get there by evening. Dinner and an overnight stay in Lachung.

Sikkim is a beautiful place with mountains, lakes, waterfalls, meandering roads, tea gardens, high mountain passes, snow-capped mountains, and much more. As we start our journey after breakfast, we enter the valley of flowers. Yumthang Valley, so named because it contains a wide variety of rhododendron flowers, is a paradise. To get to Gangtok, we ride through a valley. We stop at Zero Point along the way. There is no way forward, so we stop. China begins not far from here, and Chinese men and bunkers are readily apparent nearby. Additionally, that is how we peer across international borders. Stay the night and have dinner in Gangtok.

Before the heady roads spin off and the bike doesn’t thunder around any mountain passes, mountain biking isn’t complete. Riding along the Silk Route’s historic trade routes is as smooth as its moniker suggests. A narrow road with right, left, right, and left turns is where it starts after breakfast. Zuluk is without a doubt every rider’s dream with its 56 hairpin bends. The loops are entirely visible from the Thambi vantage point. Up until we reach Nathula pass, we ride through charming towns like Gnathang and Kupup and pass by a number of lakes. At 14,140 feet, the pass reveals the foreign mountain ranges. Stay and eat at a hotel.

After breakfast, we will head to Siliguri. You can purchase anything you want at wholesale prices in the siliguri market, which is enormous. There are shops and vendors everywhere in the town. Dinner and a night in Silguri are included.

On this, our final day of travel, we will bid our fellow travelers farewell.
