Trekking in Ladakh, Trekking Travel Itinerary, ladakh adventure tours, ladakh adventure travelSikkim, the land of high mountains and monasteries. The land of mysticism evoked partly by grandeur of Kanchenjunga and its natural beauty. Inside the 70 monasteries (approx) of this small country are fascinating murals, images of hundreds of deities from Tibetan Buddhist pantheon. Buddhism is an integral thread in the life of the Simmimese and you are constantly reminded of it during your travel. Lepchas were the first settlers to settle in Sikkim, then came Bhutias from Bhutan in the 15th century. In early 19th century Nepalese occupied the large part of the Sikkim. Thus you will be delighted to find cultures in this small land.

Situated in the eastern province of Garhwal and Kumaon, Nanda Devi "the goddess of joy" in the Hindu mythology, is the highest (at 7818m) and most sacred of all the peaks in the Indian Himalayan. Until very recently the peaks and the valleys of the adjacent Nanda Devi and Panch Chuli massifs were off-limits to the foreign travellers. However, with the opening up of the Gauri Ganga valley, we have been able to put together a fascinating itinerary in the Mountain stronghold.
