Sikkim is a landlocked state of India, and the last to give up its monarchy and fully integrate into India in 1975. Located in the Himalayan mountains, the state is bordered by Nepal to the west, China's Tibet Autonomous Region to the north and northeast, and Bhutan to the east and the Indian state of West Bengal to the south.
Small in size and colossal in beauty, Sikkim is a potpourri of ivy mountains, green alpine trees, flower beds, verdant valley and monasteries soaked up in the rich cultural history. Every nook and cranny of the state unveil dramatic landscapes that will remain intact your mind forever and ever. And of course, in whichever part of Sikkim you visit, the gigantic Kanchenjunga will follow you like a shadow. Geographically, Sikkim might be the smallest State in India but one should not get fooled its size as the variety that can be seen here can't be hardly found anywhere else in India. Rhododendron-clad mountains in the north, Buddhist monasteries to the west, South Sikkim's enormous religious statues and welcoming people and metropolitan cities and towns of East. The icing on the cake is that Sikkim shares its border with Nepal, Bhutan, and China, the so-called Himalayan Shangri-Las. Apparently, there are many treasures burrowed in this paradise. With so many things to explore and behold, little is to wonder why this tiny Himalayan kingdom is decisively the loveliest place to visit.
