Stations in Sikkim
- With a very small geographical area, Sikkim is
not very replete with hill stations though yet the most popular one in
the state remains Gangtok. The enthralling beauty and cultural
extravagance of Gangtok has contributed a great deal in making the town
a most sought after hill station of North East. Gangtok literally means
a hill top which in itself is a treat for the nature lovers. This garden
state spread in the foothills of mighty Mount Kanchendezonga is also the
capital city of Sikkim. Long boulevards through the town wrapped in a
sheet of colors and freshness in the form of flowers blooming here truly
leaves the tourists content.
A wide array of plants, flowers, birds, butterflies and wild herbs
comes as a real delight to the tourists visiting this lofty hill. To add
more to the exasperating charm of Gangtok, the colorful Lamas robed in
Red, exotic monasteries bordered by fluttering flags and the ever
smiling amiable people of the region act as colorful plumes in the
beauteous cultural feather of the town. Famous for housing over 500
species of orchids, Gangtok is at its floral best from April to June and
October to early December.
