Sikkim- heaven on earth

The reason why I travel
My friends, my families and my colleagues often wander. What makes me travel so much? Why he is so much addicted to travelling?
Let me explain you the reason why I travel-
As I seen many of my friends, colleagues going in a wrong direction after a tragic incident happens in their life"An incident which makes them to go in a such traumatic situation which leads them to a wrong addiction"
Yes !! This traumatic situation comes to everyone so guys take it easy" life has many more things to offer it is just the way you take it"
The same had happened to me but in spite of losing hope and finding wrong direction I got an addiction which bl owed away all my negative thoughts !! YES this addiction is called TRAVELLING.
For this I am sure that many people might hate me for being different and not living by society's standard but deep down every one wish they had the courage to do the same.
Now this is the answer for the person who takes solo travelling In a negative way
“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us. ”
My friend this life is full of surprises and challenges, work hard and save a bit of money to fulfil your travel journey "trust me this addiction will make you live more and breathe more. Life is beautiful and meaningful. "Cheers to life "
To all my youngsters out there don't fall in wrong direction for whatsoever reason. Remember guys har taklif ka solution hota hai. ( Don't worry every problem has a solution)
"Mast hoo jaaa "
I hope you find this inspirational

Awesome city !

Wonderful place to visit in summers. Peace, cleanliness and tasty momos are fantastic moreover best part is Indochina border. Also beautiful monasteries can't be forgotten. 1 week can easily be spent over there. Botanical garden, Road side shopping, pics with monks and small Buddhist children all adds to the great experience. Best lart is also the soothing climate. Mild snowy winds and every day rain is good. Roaming on roads in free time and doing window shopping. At last would say that it was one of mine best trips in India. Exploring Sikkim was really a great experience.

Sikkim Overview

Sikkim is the second smallest state of India. It was an independent monarchy ruled by kings called Chogyals till 1975, when it joined the Indian union. Sikkim has borders with Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan and the Indian state of West Bengal. Situated in the Himalayan ranges, the state is entirely hilly with elevations ranging between 300m and 8583m. The highest elevation is Mt. Kanchendzonga, the third highest peak in the world, which is worshipped as the guardian deity of the state.   Lepchas are considered to be the oldest inhabitants of Sikkim. Then came the Bhutias from Tibet, and later Nepalis, and the people from Indian plains. Sikkim is home to the Mahayana form of Buddhism and its colourful Gompas (Buddhist monasteries) are a major attraction. Of these, Rumtek monastery near Gangtok, and Tashiding & Pemayangste monasteries in West Sikkim are the most important.   Gangtok is the main city and the capital of Sikkim. It is a cosmopolitan place with views of snow-covered Himalayas, botanical gardens and monasteries. Gangtok is also an ideal base to visit the southern parts of the state where most of the tourist sites are located. Approachable from Gangtok, Tsongo Lake is located 3720m above sea level and is frozen during the winters. The Chinese border at Nathula Pass is close by. The town of Pelling is in west Sikkim and is a popular tourist spot. The Kanchendzonga National Park is a habitat for the snow leopard, red panda, Tibetan antelope and wild ass.   Phang Lhabso and Losoong are the main festivals of Sikkim. Phang Lhabso is dedicated to the worship of Mt. Kanchendzonga and is celebrated in August/September. Losoong is celebrated in December/January and marks the end of the harvest season.   Foreign nationals visiting Sikkim must obtain an Inner Line Permit. The permits are available at Indian missions and tourism offices in Delhi and Calcutta.
