The Trail Beaters hereby introduce this wonderful package to Sikkim, the 22nd state within the Indian union.
Gangtok
Sandwiched between the kingdoms of Nepal in the west and Bhutan in the east, Sikkim borders with the plateau of Tibet in the north and shares its southern border with the state of West Bengal, Gangtok being its capital town. Gangtok is situated at 5000 ft. above the sea level and is connected with Siliguri, the nearest Air/ Rail head. Sikkim remained a protectorate of India with a monarchy government in power till it became an integral part of India in the year 1975.

With a small population of around 5 lacs, Sikkim still represents the fairytale picture of the Himalayan region like towering mountains all-round, deep gorges and ravines, dense forests and the skyline studded with conifer trees of different varieties, massive water falls and rivers, snow capped peaks and glaciers, frozen lakes, lush meadows and vast stretches of flowering jungles and bushes. The unspoiled natural beauty of the region leaves one completely stunned. Buddhism, the faith of the majority in this area blends perfectly with nature, peace and tranquility.

The package has specially been designed keeping in mind the exploratory intellect of travelers and covers the following places of interest:

Sometimes a massive waterfall and somewhere a dense forest, next may be the lush paddy fields filled with water harnessed from nearby streams and then suddenly a tiny Himalayan village or a small township with red cheek children playing around or people waiting for the local transport at the road heads. As you proceed, in the month of March/April, you may be left dumbfounded after encountering a kilometer long Rhododendron concentration in various hues as if the whole jungle is on fire. During winters, the flowering beds and the slopes are covered with a blanket of 4 - 5 ft. thick snow, rendering the entire terrain a vast spread of white.
