Its breathtaking setting makes it the perfect vacation spot for both nature and adventure lovers.
For those who are eager to enjoy the thrills of river rafting, hiking, mountaineering, kayaking, canoeing, and bird viewing, the summer is the perfect time to visit Sikkim. To truly comprehend nature, you must travel to Sikkim in the summer. So this summer, discover a new side to Sikkim and Gangtok, the state’s major metropolis.
