Known for once being a transit point on the famous silk route to Lhasa, Zuluk is a small village located on a hilltop in East Sikkim, and also serves as a military base for the Indian Army. Slowly emerging as an offbeat destination, Zuluk is ideally located on the Silk Route such that Padamchen, Lungthung, Nathang, and Kupup lake can be covered in day trips. Known for offering breathtaking views of the sunrise over Kanchenjunga, Thambi Point is a must visit. Being a restricted area, one needs to apply for a special permit to enter Zuluk. The permit can be obtained from Gangtok or Rangli. Zuluk can be reached by road from Gangtok, Bagdogra, Kalimpong, Pelling, and Darjeeling. One can make arrangements to stay at one of the many homestays in the village.
