North East Travel: a Heavenly Experience

By Aanchal Gupta Subscribe to RSS | March 19th 2012 | Views:

At the foothills of the eastern most part of the lofty Himalayan range, are the states that together form the northeast region of India. Untouched by the hazardous aspects of modernization, this region has managed to restore the beauty and essence of nature. A north east travel offers you with an experience of a lifetime and its tranquil and serene ambiance will completely refresh you. If you are stressed out with your daily hectic schedule, then just pack your bags and plan a north east travel to recharge your energy levels. With snow-clad mountains, beautiful valleys, holy Buddhist monasteries, dense forest, adventurous sports and great cuisines, this region has a lot to offer. Sharing its border with countries like Bhutan, China, Myanmar and Bangladesh, this region houses a more than hundred different tribes each possessing a specific culture, tradition and cuisine. Apart from the abundance of natural beauty, this region will enchant you with its rich cultural diversity.

A north east travel can never be complete without visiting the exquisite Gangtok. It is the capital city of Sikkim, a small state which became a part of India in 1975 as it was earlier ruled by Bhutanese rulers. The strict actions taken by the Sikkim Government in order to keep the city clean and pollution free is highly commendable. Nestled within the huge mountain peaks of the Himalayan range, Gangtok tourism offers you with a picturesque view of the third highest peak of the world, the Kanchenjunga. With spectacular landscapes, monasteries of religious importance, mystic valleys, great hospitality and lip-smacking Tibetan delicacies, Gangtok tourism gives you a wholesome holidaying experience.

A planned tour of Gangtok enables you to experience the tranquility of the magnificent natural surroundings. With Buddhism being the predominant religion, Gangtok has many monasteries that are of great religious importance. These monasteries are not only holy places of worship but are important centers of learning for Buddhist and Tibetan religion. Some of the famous monasteries that you should definitely visit are the Pemayangtse Monastery, Rumtek Monastery, Research Institute of Tibetology and Labrang Monastery and Tasuklakhang. The Do-Drul Chorten is one of the largest stupas of Sikkim and a visit to this stupa should be included in your tour of Gangtok.

Apart from these pious monasteries, there are other places that are worth visiting. The Deer Park, the Fambong La wildlife Sanctuary and the Kyongnosla Alpine Sanctuary are a treat for animal and nature lovers. The Himalayan Zoological Park and the Jawaharlal Nehru Botanical Garden are simply extraordinary. With around 200 varieties of exotic and rare orchids, the Deorali Orchid Sanctuary completely stands out. Make sure you visit it during its blooming season in April-May and October-November and plan the tour of Gangtok accordingly.

The Tsongmo Lake or the Changu Lake is a glacier lake and is just 35 km from Gangtok. This paradise on earth will completely mesmerize you. The Nathula Pass, Tashi Viewpoint and the Phurchachu Reshi hot springs are also great places to visit. The Hanuman Tok and Ganesh Tok are two famous Hindu temples of great importance. The Gangtok tourism provides you with a wide range of exotic and splendid locations.
