Sikkim has always been a mystic place for me, it’s a land in the shadows of The Kanchenjunga, veiled in the mist and clouds. This time I planned to travel to the old silk route of Sikkim and to be more specific geographically it’s the eastern side of Sikkim. Hundreds of years back this route was frequented for business by people of both India and China.
After landing at bagdogra I met my driver who would be my companion for the entire trip. Done with the breakfast in the foothills of Himalayas my journey started for a small village in eastern Sikkim which is know as Aritar. Aritar is a beautiful place specially know for its manmade lake . Aritar was pristine and peaceful to me . I literally enjoyed my stay and food at a beautiful Homestay run by a sikkimise family. In the evening I went to see a local Sikkimese cultural program on the side of the lake eating my steaming hot momos and Darjelling tea.
