Sikkim is one of the most refreshing and energetic places to visit in India, despite the fact that it is not very easily accessible. Most tourists describe their visit to SIkkim as a soul-soothing experience due its natural beauty and quiet, divine surroundings. From rough mountains and deep valleys, to dense forests and flowing rivers and waterfalls, Sikkim has all the potential to provide a visual feast. Passes like Nathu-la, Jelep-la, Cho-la and many others which were at one time important corridors of passage between Sikkim and Tibet are worth a visit. ANother point of interest is Mt. Khangchendzonga floating high over the cloud-covered lower Himalaya and dominating the landscape of Sikkim. At 28, 208 ft is the third highest mountain in the world and the highest in India.
