What is it like to be in a place where you wake up to the sound of gushing streams, the smell of tea and coffee emanating from arty cafes, and a streak of sunlight piercing through the cloud cover? The snow-clad peak of Mt. Kanchenjunga in the distance dominating the horizon, one of the everlasting relics of nature, is an awesome sight to behold. Sounds lovely? Well, you just have to make a Sikkim tour plan to experience such a melodious string of settings. If you are new to Sikkim tourism and are considering visiting for the first time, then you are en route to unfolding one of the greatest marvels of nature. Sikkim is one of the northeastern states of India and a prominent hilly extension of the Great Himalayan mountain range. The state is permanently draped in cloud cover due to its high altitude location. Sikkim is also noted for its biodiversity and its alternating sub-tropical, temperate and Alpine climates with average summer temperatures not exceeding 28°C. When you are on a Sikkim holiday, the best part is that you get to live, stay and breathe among the clouds as you explore the various Sikkim places to visit.
