Eastern Himalayan Tour | Sikkim & Darjeeling Tours -11 days

The Eastern Himalayan tour is one of the best tour destinations besides different tours in Nepal. It is lies just behind of the Mt. Kanchenjunga mountains ranges (8,586 m/28,170 ft), the 3rd highest mountain in the world!  Sikkim & Darjeeling are the both Indian hilly cities from where one can see the beautiful mountain views, awesome tea Gardens, beautiful temples & monasteries & of course very friendly people who are Nepalese origin. These tours offer an opportunity to be at the heart of the third highest mountain Kanchenjunga (8,586 m / 28,170 ft) and other lesser but no less attractive peaks, the region is not only famous with its Himalayan scenery but also cross cultural towns of both countries (Nepal & India)

 

Sikkim, this small erstwhile Himalayan in the north-eastern frontier of India, is wedged between China, Nepal, Bhutan and the sleepy Darjeeling district. Remote, wild and unbelievable, the small state tucked in the eastern Himalayan is an experience simply out of the world! Catch the sunrise atop the mighty Kanchenjunga, visit ancient Buddhist monasteries and tea gardens, enjoy a nature walk, or relax amidst peaceful environs of emerald green. Merged into the Indian republic in 1975, Sikkim offers the magical feel of a Himalayan fairytale land. It has everything you need to relax the body and revive the human spirit.
It is an amazing place of hidden valleys, mystical monasteries, and snow fed mountains covered with rare flora and fauna. A collage of three distinct ethnic groups - Lepchas, Bhotias and Nepalese - this former kingdom is a colorful mélange of distinctively flavored cultures.
