Things To Do In Sikkim

Colourful valleys, misty hills, semi-frozen lakes, stunning Buddhist temples will be the main highlight of your Sikkim holiday. From paragliding, river rafting, cable car rides, shopping, sightseeing, to bird watching there are numerous activities in the realm of Sikkim. Enjoy each one of them with our Domestic Tour Packages. 
Riding a yak adorned with colorful bells and woolen carpets is a memorable experience that you can enjoy in Gangtok. You can take a yak ride around the Tsomgo Lake, located about 40 km from the city. Behold the scenic views as the yak walks leisurely on rugged trails, giving you just enough time to soak in the beauty of the landscape.
The Ban-Jhakri Waterfall is a popular tourist spot in the city that dons a lush green and pristine look. Falling from a height of 100 ft and surrounded by a landscaped park, this spot is located 7 kms from Gangtok. It is in close proximity of Ranka Monastery and makes for a nice day-picnic.
MG Marg is the main market area of Gangtok that is popular with tourists. The road is lined with shops selling dress materials, jewellery, souvenirs, trinkets etc. A unique thing to buy here is typical Sikkimese cups that come with lids and are made of porcelain. You could also buy books on Buddhism and Buddhist artifacts. 
Thangu is one of the many beautiful lakes in Sikkim – this one is situated in the mountain village of Lanchug on the high Alpine plateau. Since it is in close proximity to the Chinese border, this region houses a large military base. Also, in order to trek further, you need to be an Indian national; else you are only allowed to travel till Chopta Valley. Sitting by this picturesque lake gives a heavenly feeling.
Among the many abundant natural treasures in Sikkim that lie untouched is the Green Lake. Situated at an altitude of 1,437 metres, it offers breath-taking views of Kanchenjunga and other peaks. Surrounded by dense forests and meadows, this lake makes for a wonderful trekking option. Summer months from March to May are ideal to visit when flowers are in full bloom.
Lachung Monastery, or Samten Choling as it is locally called, is one of the oldest Buddhist centers in North Sikkim. In the backdrop of ice-capped mountains, the vibrant colors and splendid architecture of the monastery makes for a picture-perfect setting. The beauty of this sight is enhanced all the more during winters when the famous mask dance festival is held making it a memorable experience. 
A visit to Lachung is incomplete without an excursion to the Zero Point also known as Yumesamdong. As you drive through Yumthang valley and drive toward Zero Point at an altitude of 15000 feet above sea level, the road become rugged and vegetation sparse. At one point i.e. the Zero point, the road ends – this is the last civilized spot in North Sikkim, close to the Indo-China border. The mountains are snow capped through most of the year and the landscape leaves you spell-bound.
