Sikkim- "The Last Shangri-La"

14 Days

Sikkim, literally a bump on the map between Nepal and Bhutan, only became part of India in 1975 and still feels like a separate country. Sikkimese border guards check your entry permit as if it were a visa. With undisturbed forests, glacial streams and snow covered Himalayan peaks, Sikkim is both rugged and beautiful. It's home to the third highest peak in the world, Mt Kangchendzonga.

This tour combines some strenuous hiking and biking and is limited to people who are in excellent condition and are comfortable on both bikes and trails. It's our only adventure where we actually do some camping.

We meet in Delhi and then fly to Bagdogra, for a transfer by jeep to Kurseong. We bike through Darjeeling, Pelling, Yuksom and Borang before a rest day in Gangtok. We then head to Rumtek and Kalimpong and a spectacular descent out of the Himalayas through Lava.
