Make best of the lean season in Sikkim!
About the Tour
With fewer tourists and more adventures, what better way to explore Sikkim than during the lean season? At OurGuest, we believe there’s much more to explore and experience when there’s lesser crowd. Sikkim gives you the opportunity to be close to nature and enjoy the true essence of a slow paced town. So this July we bring you the chance to experience tranquillity and greenery of Sikkim with fun-filled activities such as sowing paddy in the fields or bear witness to the famous terrace cultivation pioneered by the Nepali community in Sikkim, enjoy riverside picnic meal cooked in the quaint, virgin forests of Dzongu, feel skittish on the winding roads of ‘Dzuluk loops’ or unwind with live music at a local pub and for the adventurous ones – the floor is all yours!
- Upper Dzongu, Medicinal Hot Springs
