Path to
Sikkim

Our Path to Sikkim is one for the adventurer. WIth peak-ringed valleys, icy-cold lakes and rhododendron-rich forests, Sikkim offers a range of trails and treks. Explore a countryside of gushing rivers and forested stretches interspersed with charming Tibetan monasteries, against a backdrop of the breathtaking Kanchendzonga mountains.

Sikkim hosts astonishing biodiversity; rare orchids and numerous rhododendron species, over 500 species of birds, a plethora of still-unstudied insects, and several rare mammals like snow leopard, Himalayan tahr, red panda, Himalayan goral, Tibetan wolf, among others. Sikkim’s towns are also bustling centres of trade, with marketplaces sourced from the far-flung reaches of the state and sometimes, from across the borders.

Our journey begins with a 5 hours’ drive up into the Himalayas from Bagdogra, where we spend a week hiking from village house to village house, granting you some access to the rural life of Sikkim. Your week would include stunning hikes with views of the Himalayas and learning about Sikkim culture and its monastaries. The journey concludes at the charming town of Darjeeling, with a stay at a tea estate.

Accommodation

Shakti Sikkim

Shakti was conceived to share the rejuvanating effects of remote surroundings—to provide privileged access to places far removed from the noise and clutter of the modern world, where space, peace and epic landscapes, provoke the imagination and nourish the soul.

Glenburn Tea Estate

Glenburn is a heavenly little plantation retreat that lies on a hillock above the banks of the River Rungeet, high in the Himalayas, overlooked by the mighty Kanchenjunga mountain range. The third and fourth generation Prakash family carry almost a century of tea knowledge in their inheritance, and invite you to experience this legacy at Glenburn.
