Tour description

Discover with us the fertile, green world between snow and orchids in the Sikkim Himalayas! This travel module is suitable as a basic module for Sikkim and gives you a first impression of the kingdom.

Immerse yourself in the rural world of the Himalayan mountain peoples, stroll through terraced rice fields and small farming villages and get to know the lively capital Gangtok with us. You will learn a lot about the eventful history of the former kingdom of Sikkim, visit Tibetan Buddhist monasteries, a children’s village or the extensive zoo – and relax in between in the tranquil ambience of our boutique hotel “Bamboo Retreat”, surrounded by its own terraced rice fields and bamboo groves.

You will be accompanied by a reliable driver in a comfortable vehicle, as well as our experienced tour guide, who will be happy to cater to your personal interests and needs. On request, we can organize themed excursions with experts on botany, Buddhism, ornithology and more. You will spend the night in lovingly designed rooms with panoramic views and balconies or in a spacious apartment suite.

We are happy to customize your tour to your needs.
