West Sikkim

west-sikkim-banner
Sikkim’s greatest tourist draw is simply staring at Khangchendzonga’s white-peaked magnificence from Pelling ridge. Most visitors then add excursios to nearby waterfalls and monasteries, plus perhaps a spot of walking. Some lovely hikes start from the charming village of Yuksom, which is also the trailhead for multiday group treks to Dzongri and Goecha La (group trekking permits required).
