Sikkim is also the Eden for hikers, who find excellent routes and summits of well-preserved lands as they trek and hike to high peaks. The natural parks are beaming with beautiful flora and fauna for you to discover and enjoy. There’s plenty to do for adventurers, rafting or trekking through the ancient Silk Road to Nathu La Pass. Sikkim and adrenaline go hand and in hand. Take advantage or the expertise of your local Himalayan travel agency to organise your personalised trip to Sikkim.
