Sikkim Darjeeling Tour – 12 days
Sikkim is extremely beautiful destination tucked between Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet and Darjeeling in the Eastern Himalayas. Mount Kanchenjunga, the third highest mountain in the world, dominates this small but beautiful land. This once independent Kingdom was ruled by the Chogyal dynasty until 1975, when following popular support it became a state of India. Sikkim has however retained much of its culture and unique identity. Containing over 150 lakes it ranges in altitude from 200 m. to almost 8,000 m. and provides extremely rich bio diversity. There have been over 600 species of birds recorded here along with over 4,000 species of flowering plants including a huge variety of Orchids. Sachem is rapidly gaining a reputation as a Botanist’s paradise and along with the introduction of eco-tourism, including serious birding, the region has at last begun to focus on enterprise-based conservation which we are keen to support.
