Travel plans?? Why not? The summer has sneaked into our lives and is playing its game to make us miss winters more! But why aren’t we even planning an outing to a place that’s going to relieve us from all the heat? What about a Sikkim tour this summer?
Let’s check on some of the exciting trip schedules you can backpack to this summer! Sikkim should be one of them to start up with.
When should we visit Sikkim?….
The best time to visit Sikkim is from the time period March-May and from October- December. The weather during this time remains quite comfortable and you can enjoy the snowy places without any hurdles. If you travel in between January to February then there are high chances to get excluded from all the best views of Sikkim.
Which part of Sikkim should I be visiting?…
When up for a Sikkim tour make sure you know what’s on your list!! Which places to visit in Sikkim is a common question as both North & South Sikkim serve differently to different people and have its own true beauty to behold.
North Sikkim has this scenic beauty all covered in snow and small villages where you can definitely have a feeling of rejuvenation at its best. On the other hand, South Sikkim and Gangtok are a combination of great views of the culture and mostly are spring friendly with beautiful monasteries, orchids, waterfalls and tea gardens etc. to breathe air having a view of the Mt. Kanchenjunga.
