 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.

 

 We have ample natural beauty, like the Kanchenjunga, which is the highest mountain to be seen from Sikkim. Normally foreigners who come to Sikkim, they go on treks in west Sikkim and they go for package tours as well.

 

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

 

WTM has a big crowd and a big crowd puller. There are exhibitors from different countries.

 

Sikkim has a lot of tourists from the USA, UK and many people from Israel also.
