Sikkim is the other name of serenity, but to get it at its best you need to pick the best spots. The entire ‘kingdom’ of the Chogyals is blessed immensely by Mother Nature and hence every corner of Sikkim is beautiful. But if serenity is what your soul is crying for, then the Western part of the state should be your aim. How about spending a few days at a small town nestled on the hill slopes with the snow-capped peaks of Kanchenjunga standing on the other side? How about taking gentle strolls through forested areas and hill slopes keeping the huge peaks as witnesses? No market, no shop, no crowds and noise, just you with your beloved one and the magnanimous peaks watching you from the top…..how about that? If this is exactly what you are looking for in Sikkim, then set out for a trip to Rinchenpong.
