Sikkim is India's first fully organic state that has implemented a full-scale ban on pesticides and fertilizers throughout the state. Being extremely environmentally conscious and progressive, India's youngest state displays a stellar example of administration and maintenance in terms of cleanliness and peace. Sikkim is situated towards the northern fringes of India - so much so that it's northern terrain gets covered in blankets of snow. The view of the peaks that surround Sikkim get covered in snow is a sight to behold during most times of the year.
Your trip to Sikkim will be incomplete without stepping into its capital, Gangtok. This town emanates a vibe of its own. It is lined up with great eateries, antique shops, souvenir stores, chic cafes and coffee points that bring you the uptown feels as you sip on some latte overlooking the glittering Sikkimese skyline during sunset. You can also visit the monasteries, hilltops and viewpoints, check in to luxury and indulgent resorts, or simply chill in the M.G.Marg, which is a spit & litter-free zone.
The entire state is divided into 4 divisional districts, namely the East, North, South & West District. The territory of Sikkim is filled with exotic sightseeing locations like forest trails, frozen lakes, misty hot springs, and scenic trek routes that make you end up in breathtaking locations. It is home to the 3rd highest peak in the world and commands excellent, uninterrupted views of the Kanchenjunga mastiff. Severe white peaks encircle the quaint settlements in Sikkim as the colorful prayer flags arch through the wind and flutter endlessly without rest amidst the azure sky.
