Snapshots from Sikkim : Part-I

With summer in its full bloom, travel is the theme of all my blogs this month.:)
Traveling is one thing which I love to do. And when we got a bunch of holidays in 2nd week of April it was time to set off for a holiday. I will not give any journey details here as I am already covering them at my other blogs . U can read them and see some more pics here
But then I have lot of pics to share something new in all my blogs :). Both these pics were taken when we were in route to Gangtok from Sikkim.
Look how lush green is the forest a view which continued for some time as we moved out of Siliguri. Siliguri is infact gateway to several tourist destinations in North Bengal, Sikkim & Bhutan!

A view of River Teesta what river Ganges is to UP...the same importance has River Teesta to people of Sikkim.We got first glimpse of teesta 35 km away from siliguri and then went all along it towards its origin!
All these pics are taken from moving vehicle so focus is not as sharp.

I'd been to Sikkim when I was about 9 or 10 years old. It was our first trip with our parents. We had soooo much fun! I remember we had gone to Shango lake (I hope I've spelt that right!). It is on the Indo-Sino border. It was just covered with snow. It was the first time that I'd ever seen snow and I was delrious with joy!! :))

Sikkim is differing in society and conventions. Three critical groups living in Sikkim are the Lepcha, Bhutia and Nepali. Look how rich green is the woodland a perspective which proceeded for quite a while as we moved out of Siliguri. Siliguri is infact portal to a few traveler destinations in North Bengal, Sikkim and Bhutan! It is additionally. In case you're searching for long visits in world picking rental cars in kochi is that the best decision, similar to taxi administration. It has a rich widely varied vegetation some of which incorporates different orchids, rhododendrons, bamboo trees, and restorative herbs. Sikkim is likewise home to the uncommon Red Panda. The state has numerous ensured zones as national parks and untamed life havens.
