Our Sikkim Explored itinerary is designed with returning visitors to India in mind. This region of Northeast India has a strong Tibetan influence, as many of the towns and villages were on an important trade route to Tibet. Our trip is fantastic for those with a love of scenery and the outdoors as well of those with an interest in Tibetan Buddhism. The journey includes the former British capital of Calcutta (now known as Kolkata), a journey by train to Darjeeling’s tea plantations (a UNESCO World Heritage site), visits to numerous colourful and very active temples and monasteries as well as lots of time to walk and relax. We think it’s a wonderful and unique journey, that makes a nice change from classic routes through Rajasthan and Kerala.
