Sikkim: An Overview

Sikkim is a state in the northeastern part of India. It is the second-smallest and least populous state in the country. The state offers some picturesque views as it is located near the mighty Himalayas. Hence, it’s a must-visit state if you are a nature lover. Some of the prominent places include Tsomgo Lake, Pemayangtse Monastery, Nathula Pass and Buddha Park.

  • Tsomgo Lake, also called Changu Lake, is based near Gangtok. You can also watch migratory birds at this lake. Locals consider it a sacred lake, and you will require a permit to visit this place.

  • The Pemayangtse Monastery is among the oldest monasteries in the state, built in 1705. It is situated 140 km from Gangtok. 

  • Nathula Pass is one of the highest motorable roads in the world. It is located on the road joining Sikkim and Tibet. You will require a permit to take this scenic route.

  • The Buddha Park was built in the Ravangla area in 2006. The 130-foot Buddha statue is the highlight of this place. It is also a place of spiritual significance to the Buddhists.
