This is a land, which is plastic and chemical free. Nothing can be more close to nature than Sikkim.
With adorable views of the Himalayan range, landscapes adorned with rhododendron during spring
and the sensational Yumthang Valley make it a natural wonder.

2) Tibetan Buddhism Center

The Rumtek Monastery is a treasure chest of precious statues, cenotaphs and other artifacts
relevant to the Tibetans. It takes one back to the bygone era of the rich culture and heritage of
Sikkim. Allow yourself to soak in the beauty of the history of Sikkim!

3) Flamboyant Festivals

The food culture Sikkim is what reflects the local taste and the popular foods include

Momo (meat filled dumplings), Thukpa (vegetable noodle soup), Phagshapa (stewed pork fat with
radish and dry chillies), Sael Roti (deep fried paste of rice and water), Niguru and Churpi (fiddlehead
ferns with cheese) and Gundruk (dried mustard oil leaves).
