A hilly state in the Himalayas. Second smallest state in India. Beautiful place. Very clean. And nice people.
Sikkim is very safe. It is a zero crime state. It is said that there are only three or four inmates in the jail. 🙂
Best Time To Visit
We went in December end. Its damn cold in December and January. And you should be damn lucky to see Gurudongmar lake at this time because the roads will be closed by military because of ice formations.
And there wont be any flowers in Sikkim during this period. According to locals, April to July is the best time to visit Sikkim. Yumthang Valley will be full of flowers during this time.
Roads are just ok. And roads to North Sikkim were pretty bad when we went there in 2010.
No autorikshaws there.. 🙂
For group tours, Mahindra Maxx 10 seater and Sumo are commonly used. Zero comfort..
