'Land of the Thunder Dragon' is shrouded in mystery to many, a small Buddhist Kingdom landlocked in the eastern Himalayas. A pristine landscape with dramatic backdrops of snow clad Himalayan peaks in the north, rivers flow south into the Indian plains and tropical forests abound in the southern regions. This tour also takes you to Sikkim, abode of nature. The snow covered mountains & lush green valleys not only invigorates one's soul, it also leaves the spectators bewildered by the extravaganza of its natural beauty. Nearly 40% of Sikkim's total area is forested.
