Sikkim

Rumtek Monastery, Sikkim TravelsSikkim is an enchanted land of almost 200 monasteries or gompas, with well preserved cultural heritage reflected in the lifestyle of the people. The monasteries are adorned with frescoes along with silk and brocade thankas. The devoted lamas robed in red can be seen in peace with nature chanting ancient mantras mingled with the whirring prayer wheels.

Sikkim is surrounded by Nepal to the west, Tibet (China) to the north, Bhutan to the west and the Indian state of West Bengal to the south. Sikkim, a state lying in the northeastern part of India, is one of the more physically accessible sections of the Himalaya. Accessible from the Indian state of West Bengal, the Sikkim has some of the loftiest mountains in the world that find favour with the trekkers and mountaineering expeditions. In the olden days, this region was known as Basyul - the hidden land.

Sikkim has an enthralling mix of flora and fauna. The Red Panda, an endangered animal, and the symbol of Sikkim, is found in the mountain forests heights of 6,000 to 12,000 ft above sea level. The other wildlife members are the Himalayan black bear, brown bear, panda, and yaks, numerous species of deer, blue sheep, goral, Tibetan antelope, tiger and leopard. Sikkim is home to the elusive Snow Leopard and the rare Clouded Leopard. The presence of these animals in the forests is announced from the tree-tops by pheasant, partridges, quail, eagles, barbets, Himalayan cuckoos, and Tibetan black crows. And last but not the least, of the 1,400 butterfly species that exist in the Indian subcontinent, Sikkim is home to almost 50% of them.
