The trekkers find immense joy in trekking through the various routes of Sikkim and explore the verdant snow covered valleys, placid lakes, the alpine forests and the brilliant blooms of Rhododendrons that brighten up the valley. Small hamlets, ancient gompas representing various sects of Tibetan Buddhism also draw special attention of the trekkers.
