Zuluk-land where you find Kanchanjungha

Zuluk is situated in eastern part of Sikkim about 145 km from Siliguri/New Jalpaiguri railway station. It is difficult to find any direct car or bus from Siliguri unless you are ready to hire it. Best way to reach there is to hire a car if you are proceeding in groups of 6-7 people. Although the entire route is traversable in a day but the ride is not a merry one. So it's better if you take a night halt at some intermediate stop like Aritar for eg.. Once in Zuluk, it's a small village with a military base and some awesome scenic beauty. There are not much luxurious hotels here... But you get some of the best homestays that provide good food and adequate facilities. From Zuluk you proceed for the silk route that gives numerous hairpin loops to reach the top of the mountain with perhaps the best views of Kanchenjunga... Hope you enjoy once in Zuluk.

Zuluk Overview

About Zuluk Tourism

Located in the lower Himalayas in east Sikkim, Zuluk is situated at an altitude of 10,000 feet and is an unexplored destination which has gained importance owing to its strategic location on the historic Old Silk Route and its proximity to the Indo-China border.

The Old Silk Route was the official corridor between India and China. The Silk Route originates from Kalimpong and passes through Pedong, Aritar, Zuluk and Jelepla to Chumbi valley located in Tibet. However, after the Chinese aggression, this route was closed and Nathula was made the official corridor between India and China. In addition, an army base is located at Zuluk, which is utilised as a transit camp for the army movement towards the Chinese border. Majority of the inhabitants comprise of immigrants of Nepal, who settled at Zuluk. Since Zuluk is inhabited mostly by Nepali migrants, the village is dominated by Sikkimese-Nepalese culture.

Dashain, celebrated in the month of October, is the biggest festival and is also the most prominent festival of the region. Furthermore, Tihar is another famous festival, which is celebrated 15 days after Dashain. In addition to these festivals, dances are also performed to celebrate the cultivating and harvesting seasons in the region. The 'Dhan Naach' and 'Maruni' are two popular dance forms of this region.

Zuluk is famous for Sunrise Point and Tsomogo Lake, which is a popular picnic spot. In addition, travellers visiting the destination can pay a visit to Nag Temple and the Adi Baba Mandir. Apart from this, the Lungthung and the Luxmi Chowk are popular among wildlife and nature lovers. The best time to visit Zuluk is during the summer season, when the village is blooming with a variety of rhododendrons.

Zuluk can be reached through airways, roadways and railways. The nearest airport serving the destination is Bagdogra Airport, which is located at a distance of 128 km from Zuluk. From there, tourists can reach the village by road. Those travelling by trains are served by the New Jalpaiguri Station, which is the nearest train station to Zuluk. In addition to this, Zuluk can be reached via road through Gangtok and Siliguri.

There is very limited accommodation facility in Zuluk. Travellers can look for accommodation options in Gangtok which is just 4 hours away from Zuluk or Aritar which is a nearby town.
