Sikkim & West Bengal (Recce Tour)

Situated in the Eastern Himalayas Sikkim is one of the most beautiful states of India. It boasts the 3rd highest mountain in the world – Kanchenjunga – at 8586m, luxuriant forests, deep valleys with terraced hillsides, exotic flora and fauna, pristine waterfalls, sacred lakes and a number of beautifully ornate Buddhist monasteries.

We will enter Sikkim via Darjeeling, long renowned as a Hill Station during the Raj, famous for its colonial architecture and tea plantations. Heading out to West Sikkim we visit the sacred lake of Khecheopalri and walk to the charming and unspoilt town of Yuksom. Our journey also includes the breath-taking wild landscapes of North Sikkim with a homestay at a traditional Lepcha village of Dzongu and the stark natural beauty of the Yumthang Valley situated at an elevation of 3894m. Heading south we cross Gangtok before taking our overnight train journey south to Kolkata, India’s second largest city and revered as the cultural and intellectual capital, but also famed for its huge population. Here our visit will coincide with the Durga Puja or Devi Paksha, ‘Fortnight of the Goddess’ celebrating the victory of good over evil.

This tour will introduce you to Sikkim – a more scenic, remote and culturally diverse region of India and combine this with visits to the more renowned cities of Darjeeling and Kolkata in West Bengal.

  • Darjeeling –‘Queen of the Hill Stations’
  • Spectacular views of Kanchenjunga

Staying in Srinagar, take a shakara through the old town, along the Bund. It's not on the normal tourist circuit and is fascinating.
