About Sikkim

No wonder, Sikkim was amalgamation of natural splendors and rich Sikkim's-Tibetan culture. Due to extreme temperature and snow covered mountains, this state remains at the top of every traveler's list. Embarking on such an expressive place I had planned a tight schedule of 10 days to Sikkim, I had limited time to explore, and what I saw, completely astonished me. Walking down the MG road of Gangtok and wandering through Buddhist monasteries brought some unexpected culture and food. Driving down the unpredictable roadways covered by icy mountains, adorable waterfalls and photogenic foggy land at -6 degree C temperature had made me to write exploring lachung beyond our reach. And now instagramming sikkim: Tsomgo Lake, Namchi and Pelling. My next stage was about visiting Tsomgo - pristine exotic lake and Namchi, Pelling - quiet serene and wonderful side of Sikkim. I want to say it as Photographic journey to Tsomgo lake, Namchi and pelling
