Sikkim Tour Packages

About Sikkim Tourism: Part of the Eastern Himalayas, the Northeastern state of Sikkim borders Bangladesh and the Tibet Autonomous Region of China. Thanks to its imposing peaks covered with snow, wide-open spaces, lush greenery, and magnificent views, it is a popular tourist attraction. Holidify’s multitude of Sikkim holiday packages are curated to provide you with a fantastic trip with friends or family and include the best of the region.

Sikkim tour packages include destinations like Gangtok, Pelling, Lachen, Aritar, Chopta Valley, Yangtey, Namchi and more. For an unforgettable trip, visit Sikkim between March and June or September and December when the weather is delightful. Offering marvellous views of Mt. Kanchenjunga, the capital city of Gangtok is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the state.

Gangtok is perfect for an adventurous getaway known for its mountain peaks ideal for trekking, bright Rhododendrons, spectacular views and heritage sites. Banjhakri Falls, Seven Sisters Waterfalls and Tsomgo Lake add to the region’s natural beauty, while the Flower Exhibition Centre and Himalayan Zoological Park are excellent for exploring its biodiversity. Also, make sure to visit the Baba Harbhajan Singh Temple, Ganesh Tok, Rumtek Monastery and Hanuman Tok.

Nathula Pass, connecting Sikkim to Tibet and once a part of the Silk Route, is accessible through Gangtok. Moreover, you can partake in trekking, paragliding, mountain biking while here, along with riding yaks and riding the Ropeway. Pelling is a picturesque destination known for its impressive monasteries like the Sangachoeling Monastery and Pemayangtse Monastery, the ruins of the Old Rabdentse Palace, Rimbi River and small Rimbi Waterfall.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Kanchenjunga National Park is a must-visit owing to its diverse flora and fauna, comprising the Himalayan Tahr, Snow Leopard and maple, as well as majestic glaciers. Next, head over to Chopta Valley, nicknamed the “Valley of Flowers,” to explore its green valleys filled with colourful flowers and to discover its varied flora and fauna.

Your trip to Sikkim must include a visit to Lachung that is a beautiful town with natural beauty; gushing waterfalls like the Bhim Nala Waterfalls, frozen Gurudongmar Lake with snow-clad peaks in the backdrop, Lachung Zero Point, and Lachung Monastery. Located nearby is the Shingba Rhododendron Sanctuary that you must surely go to!

Between September and December, the temperature can drop as low as 4°C but it is still suitable for sightseeing. It is advisable to not visit during the monsoon months of July to August since the state receives heavy rainfall and the roads could be dangerous to drive. During the peak winter months from mid-December to February, it snows so many roads may be closed off or treacherous.

Is passport required for Sikkim?

If you are an Indian citizen, you do not need to have a passport in order to enter Sikkim but if you are a foreign national, you must have a valid passport and visa to enter India and subsequently Sikkim. Since Sikkim lies close to countries like China, a lot of its regions have entry restricts. Any foreign national would need to procure the Restricted Area Permit or Inner Line Permit to enter the state and all visitors, Indians or foreigners, must get the Protected Area Permit to visit areas closer to the borders like Nathula Pass, Yumthang Valley, Tsomgo Lake and Gurudongmar Lake.

Is there snowfall in Sikkim?

Areas which are located at a higher altitude such as Nathula Pass, Yumthang Valley, Lachen Village, Thangu Valley, Gurudongmar Lake, etc. are covered in snow from December onwards. The temperature drops as low as -5°C and the views are absolutely magnificent. You can also ride the ropeway, go skiing and yak riding during this time.

Is Aadhar Card valid in Sikkim?

Yes, the Aadhar card is definitely valid in Sikkim and is accepted as a proof of identification anywhere. It is also accepted if you are applying for a permit to enter the areas which are closer to the border. Other forms of identification which are accepted include your passport, voter ID and driving license, all of which must have been issued by the State or Central Government and should have your photograph and address.

Can I take my car to Sikkim?

Yes, you can take your own car to travel to Sikkim or you can get a self-drive car too, especially if you are visiting any of the unprotected areas. However, if you are planning on entering any of the protected areas which are closer to the border like Nathula Pass or Tsomgo Lake, you will need to rent a Sikkim registered vehicle from a tour operator; it must be an SUV like Bolero, Innova or Scorpio. Keep in mind to procure the necessary permits to enter these areas.
