 We offer homestay tourism, adventure tourism as well as village tourism when people visit Sikkim. It is a mountainous area. The elevation is between 5800 to 14000 feet. We have many tourist attractions in the lap of the mountains.

Sikkim has three ethnic groups, Lepchas, Nepalis and Bhutiyas. We are quite distinct from other places in India.
