Sikkim is a place of unmatched exquisiteness and is located in the diverse regions of Himalaya. Nestled between China on its north, Bhutan to its east and Nepal on its eastern frontier, the region still maintains its medieval and agrarian character.
It has been declared as a perfect tourist destination as it offers a chance of experiencing tranquility and peace in its soothing environs. Travelling in Sikkim is not only about its ambiance and tradition. With an incomparable range of snow covered mountains, this place offers an opportunity to enjoy adventure activities amongst which trekking in its most challenging hills, picturesque landscapes and high-altitude meadows is the most popular among tourists.
Trekking is permitted in its hills but you need to hire a recognized travel agent, licensed by the Indian tourist Development Corporation or a guide authorized by the Sikkim government, to ensure your security and wellbeing. You can easily avail the trekking gears from the main marketplace of Gangtok and trek from Gangtok to the Pemayangtse monastery or Nayan Bazaar to Pemayangtse via Yaksum and finally the Dzongri region.
