Visiting Switzerland is on every traveller’s bucket list. But, do you know that there is a ‘Switzerland of India’ which is pretty much as magnificent as your dream destination- ‘Switzerland’?
Yes, you guessed it right. We are talking about Sikkim which is generally regarded as the ‘Heaven on Earth’ by every traveller visiting the state. From the snow-capped mountains to the lip-smacking food there are numerous things that Sikkim can offer you, making it a must-visit for every traveller.
Here are some reasons why planning a Sikkim trip before visiting Switzerland can be your best travelling decision ever!
Few Great Reasons Why You Should Opt For A Sikkim Tour Package Before Visiting Switzerland
We understand that the beautiful Alps are one of the biggest reasons why you wish to visit Switzerland. But trust us; the Himalayas are far more grandiose when you opt for a good North Sikkim tour package. Be honest- if you do not try snowboarding before, doing it in Switzerland while you are on a vacation, isn’t a wise decision. If you want the mountains and snow, Sikkim has got both for you.
Treks are as great in Sikkim as they are in Switzerland. What makes this north-eastern state apt for you is that there is one trek to suit the expertise of every tourist. Just the way there is Dzongri Trek for every mountaineer, there is Khangchendzonga trek for travellers who really want challenges.
It’s obvious that you will not go to Switzerland for famed cuisine, isn’t it? Well, by opting for a good Sikkim tour package, you can get food prepared from incredibly fresh ingredients along with delicious momos and fancy chocolates. Moreover, if you wish to try delicacies, you can get yak cheese too!
Though Switzerland is famous for its clocks and watches, you can obviously have a remarkable shopping experience during your Sikkim trip. Stroll down Gangtok’s MG Road and you will find a splendid array of stylish shoes and clothes. What’s more, shopping here is cheaper too.
Just like Switzerland, even this north-eastern state boasts of some of the most beautiful lakes. Both the Gurodongmar Lake and the Changu Lake are incredibly stunning. All you need is a permit to visit the former and enjoy the picturesque lakes.
So what if Switzerland boasts of some great wines? In Sikkim, you will get home-produced rice beer, served in bamboo along with some awesome local wines, hugely popular among tourists. Not only do these taste good, but are even much stronger than you can think of.
Don’t you think Sikkim is as splendid as Switzerland? Time to opt for the right tour package, then!
