    Kaluk

    A beautiful village named Kaluk, located on the lap of the Himalayan Mountains in west Sikkim at a height of 1620 feet, is widely known among travelers for its surreal everyday splendor. Far from the hustle and bustle of city life, Kaluk provides its visitors with the most breathtaking views of Mt Kanchenjunga. It is known for the Durga Mandir, Rinchenpong Monastery, and Megi Dara, and is one of the windiest areas in Sikkim.

    Kaluk is rewarded with the distinguishing assets in abundance, lying in the cushion zone of the renowned Varsey Rhododendron Sanctuary. While visiting Kaluk, visitors may get a glimpse of the traditional culture that has been successfully preserved by the Lepchas people from the surrounding towns.

    Individuals of Kaluk were entirely subject to agriculture in the previous year, but, after being designated as an eco-tourist region, tourism has changed into the main portion of the business for the general population of Kaluk.

Kaluk’s high forests are densely forested, making it an ideal location for nature lovers. Kaluk is a place in the center of nature, away from the polluted air and monotony of city life.
