Sikkim is situated in Eastern Himalayas spreading below Mount Kanchenjunga (8,534m), the third highest mountain in the world.
Shrouded in heavy mist, the guardian deity Kanchenjunga protects the inhabitants of Sikkim . Omnipresent and mystical, Kanchenjunga finally yields to nature's power and sheds its monsoon veil in autumn. Sikkimese celebrate this re-awakening with great pomp and ceremony during the Pang Lhabsol festival.
Sikkim is conveniently divided into four regions - east, west, north and south. The most populated area is the eastern part which includes the capital town of Gangtok , followed by southern and western districts and finally the sparsely populated northern area with its inhospitable climate and steep ridges.
Tourist attraction :- Gangtok , Pemayangtse and Yumthang
Tourism is considered as the backbone of Sikkim's economy. It has brought economic prosperity in Sikkim. With the salubrious climate, the natural beauty and the fine cultural heritage of Sikkim, the growth of tourism has immense possibilities. There are large number of places of tourist attraction particularly the snow clad mountains, the lakes and unspoiled forest areas and valleys of flowers. The advantage of having very fine monasteries in Sikkim can also be taken to attract Buddhist tourists from countries like Japan and the South Eastern countries.
