Under the guarding presence of 'Kanchanjunga' the 3rd highest mountain in the world revered by Sikkimese as their protective deity, lays the small beautiful and magical former kingdom of Sikkim. Known for its remoteness, majesty, magic and mystery, Sikkim, forbidden to the outside world for decades, is now open to you with a promise of awesomely beautiful vistas of mountains, lakes, monasteries and people.
The Lepchas are said to be Sikkim's earliest original inhabitants. Lepchas call themselves 'Rongtub' or 'Mutanchi' meaning 'dearest people of mother earth'. The Lepchas together with the Bhutias and Nepalese each adding their unique colour to Sikkimese culture live in Good Harmony.
