Towering snow-capped mountains, lushly forested valleys, impressive ancient monasteries and charming colonial hill stations, the essence of the last Himalayan Shangri-La can still be found in Sikkim.

A separate independent kingdom until 1975, Sikkim has retained much of its special character and charm aided by a cool climate that gives a welcome haven from India’s oft oppressive heat.

For walkers, Sikkim provides an array of opportunities to savour the stunning scenery with trails leading up into the high Himalaya through lush valleys and tea gardens, across airy ridges and past monasteries decorated with multi-coloured prayer flags. Kangchenjunga, 8,586m/28,169ft, the world’s third highest mountain dominates the scenery and is the undoubted jewel in Sikkim’s crown.

There are also many cultural sights in the region most notably the colonial hill station of the British Raj at Darjeeling, the Buddhist monasteries at Gangtok and the orchid gardens of Kalimpong.

You can also combine the best of Sikkim with a relaxing week long cruise on the Brahmaputra River on our Brahmaputra River Cruise with Darjeeling. The cruise is aboard a stylish river boat and includes excursions to villages, cultural attractions and the renowned Kaziranga National Park.
