To escape the monotony of life, browsing the web pages in search of a place to confer respite became more or less a morning ritual. As the summer vacations were just around the corner, I became even more restless to step out and witness the bliss of nature. Just then a close friend of mine from school asked me to join him on a four day trip to Sikkim. It felt as if God answered my prayers, without a second thought I agreed.
Its heaven on Earth, if Sikkim is still unseen, you are surely missing out on something majestic. Sikkim is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. It is well connected through roadways and railways. The closest airport is at Bagdogra, Siliguri, 130 kilometers away from Gangtok. The people, the culture and the mouthwatering dishes distinguishes Sikkim from the rest of the country. From the breathtaking view of the snow-capped Himalayas to the magnificent waterfalls, Sikkim is a country of its own. The inhabitants, popularly known as the Gorkhas are very fervent and hard working. Places like Gangtok, Pelling and Darjeeling evoke a sense of serenity and beauty. It is a hot spot for numerous tourists from all around the globe. The hotels are good, the food is excellent and the ambience is perfect for all the nature lovers. The capital, Gangtok is the largest city and hosts the maximum number of tourists throughout the year. The city is beautifully decorated and reflects a perfect blend of religion and nature. The safety and security of all the tourists are well looked after by the Tourism Department and one should have no complaints while touring.
Being a nature lover I have fallen in love with the place and wish to return over and over again. For me the place has only reflected positive vibes. If I were to rank the place I would give it 9.5 out of 10!!
