Madhuri Palaji
The minute I decided to travel my pain away, I booked tickets to do just that. After a little research, I decided I would go to Sikkim. The nearest airport to Sikkim was Bagdogra airport at Siliguri, West Bengal. I wanted something less crowded and more peaceful, because, I was already amongst the crowds and really not in a mood to deal with too many people. I did a little research and found a cute nest about 134 km away from Siliguri. I decided to go there without second thoughts.

Things to do: The lush green slopes of this charismatic west Sikkim village beckons you with an array of activities you can engage in, ranging from processing butter and cheese, gardening in the fields, or milking a cow or two. As you immerse yourself in the bucolic lifestyle of the people, go down to the Yuma Meditation Centre or make a visit to the 200-year-old Limboo traditional house. With tar coated ceilings (an aftermath of the constantly burning fire), and the solid mud floors, this ancient structure is an heirloom, passed on to generations of Nepali Limboo tribesmen.Suggested stay:

At an elevation of 5,790ft, Darap Village, 8km away from Pelling, is predominantly inhabited by the Limboo community. The word Darap originates from a Limboo word 'Tan-lop' that translates to plain land. Darap is scattered with paddy fields and cardamom plantations.
