Event description

Description

While most of the state is commercialised, West Sikkim has still kept its rich culture and heritage alive. Sikkim is one of the prominent destination for travel enthusiasts because of Himalayas, gorging waterfalls, snow-capped mountains, monasteries, flora and fauna. Not to forget the authentic momos and sumptuous thupka.

Gangtok on the other hand, the capital of Sikkim and Tibetan Buddhist centre, is situated at an altitude of 5500 feet above sea level and on the eastern Himalayan range. The view of Kanchenjunga from Gangtok is awe-inspiring.

This trip will be lead by our Clan Captain - ‘Pawan’ - a local from Darjeeling. Pawan who is also a story teller will give you the insights of this beautiful state. He was the one who had helped us in finding a hidden waterfall in our last group trip.

This day we visit the majestic Kanchenjunga Falls and Khecheopalri Lake. A quiet and serene pathway takes you through sometimes steep and winding roads of the hills. If weather permits, we will trek up to a hidden, untouched and pure waterfall which we discovered on our last trip

and named it ‘Pawan Falls’ after the guy who helped us in finding it. In case the weather is not good for this trek, we will visit a local NGO and spend some quality time with these cute, naughty kids in the school :)

Day 4: Pelling

After breakfast, let’s head to Sing-Shoe bridge. Later, visit the archaeological site- Rabdentse Ruins and Pemayangtse Monastery. In the evening, trek for around 3 km to see one of the most beautiful Monastery and astounding views of Pelling while trekking up.

Day 5: Pelling to Gangtok

This day we leave towards Gangtok. On the way let’s pay a visit to Rumtek Monastery. Rumtek is the largest monastery in Sikkim and was built-in the 16th century. Nestled amongst verdant mountains, distant snow peaks and flowing streams around it, you will see prayers underway with rows of monks sitting together, chanting the sacred Buddhist texts. In the evening, check out the famous MG Market and indulge in some local shopping.

Day 6: Gangtok

This day we do the local sight seeing of Gangtok. Visit Ganesh Tok, Himalayan Zoological park, Hanuman Tok, Bakthang Waterfalls, and Tashi view point. Once you are back from sight seeing, just walk around Gandhi Chowk and explore the local city on your own.
