For me travelling has mostly been about discovering the safeguarded secrets of a place through conversations. These conversations are often with the locals and sometimes with fellow travellers who come up with fascinating trivia on driving past a new town or citing a stunning river or visiting a religious spot. This is how I stumbled upon some of the most fascinating places to visit in Sikkim.
On my last trip to North Sikkim during early December in 2017, I happened to travel with some insightful locals and a curious set of travellers who unearthed some fascinating facts about this state during casual conversations inside a 4*4 Bolero. On this 6-day road trip from Gangtok to Gurudongmar Lake via Lachen, Lachung and Yumesangdong, we came across the most appealing places to visit in Sikkim as well as some interesting trivia that made for great conversations on this road trip.
