I had taken a break in life, to go explore and travel. So did two of my friends. I had always wanted to backpack, and with two of my friends on board, we planned a backpacking trip to around Sikkim.

The people are so chilled out and honest, they respect and treat tourists like friends. You will have a cultural shock and experience the diversity, which is totally different from the rest of India. North Sikkim, and Kangchenjunga are a must visit.

I did have a simple plan and a map. East Sikkim was my starting point before heading on to North Sikkim, and later, via South Sikkim, to West Sikkim.

Must Visit:

  • East Sikkim: (5 days)
  • North Sikkim: (3days)​
  • South Sikkim: (2 days)​
    • Borong Tsa-Chu hotspring
  • West Sikkim: (4 days)
