THE SWITZERLAND OF INDIA- SIKKIM NORTH EAST INDIA-EXPLORE -3/4

(cont.)-3/4

My intent to explore the North East was a curiosity to the unfamiliar, Sikkim is always the window, the path to that route, it’s most popular with tourists and quite surprisingly crowded which was why I wanted to travel out on a road less traveled! Even the travel agencies recommend commencing Sikkim as a first destination before other NE states.

It takes 3 to 4 hours gradual gradient drive from Darjeeling, the backdrop dramatically changes from dull grey of Darjeeling town to the more fertile riverbank of the Teesta.
