THE SWITZERLAND OF INDIA- SIKKIM NORTH EAST INDIA-EXPLORE 10-11

From Pine trees, dense woods to wide expanses of Tea gardens, this was the next sweep of scenery, only this time the land appeared flat and infinite, at certain angles a valley view in focus, the hills with carved stepped terraces was reminiscent of the fabled Balinese rice fields.

Sikkim is making great inroads in the Tea industry, my first halt just before hitting the roads to Gangtok was a small highway outlet of Temi tea. Neighboring Darjeeling Tea is Sikkim’s main rival in the Tea industry but Sikkim is taking competition headlong and boasts of their tea estates organic compliant.
