Sikkim was earlier a protectorate of India with a monarchy government, but in 1975 it metamorphosed as the twenty second state of Indian Union. The population of the whole state is about 5, 40,000 as per the last census, less than a populated colony of Delhi? Tucked away in the eastern corner of the mighty Himalayas, Sikkim nestles among the snow-clad- ranges like a precious jewel waiting to be discovered. Bordered by Tibet in the north, Bhutan in the east, Nepal in the west and the Indian state West Bengal in the south, Sikkim is an enchanting land that inspires divine imaginations in the hearts of all who come within its magical range. The sacred and exotic land is blessed by the great Buddhist saint Guru Padmasambhawa. Sikkim harbors nearly 4000 varieties of flowering plants including 600 varieties of orchids, exotic collection of fauna and some of the rare and endangered species of wildlife like red panda, snow leopard, and shapi etc.An ancient land treasured with seemingly endless visual vistas, pristine environment, and hospitality which is genuinely legendary. Here lies Mount Kanchendzonga (8586mts) the third highest peak in the world revered and worshipped by sikkimese as “Protective Deity”. The name Sikkim is an appellation of the Nepalese word “Suk-him” meaning “A land of happiness” the Bhutias call it “Bayul Demazong” or the “Hidden Valley of Rice”, the name Sikkim is also an apt metaphor for enchanting experience, adorable myths, and a mystical bliss. In short, Sikkim is a desirable destination to go serenading seraphic sensuality of the Great Himalayan foothills where the nature is at its best and the closest. The customs and cultures of the different communities that reside here also present a kaleidoscopic picture. A visit to Sikkim is to let you loose on a grand tour of a place that is still very much virgin, unpolluted and innocent. Sikkim offers the perfect destination for those wanting an escape from the sanitized complexities of the city life and longing for some warmth and friendship in the lap of nature.
