Darjeeling Nestle in the splendor and beauty of immense snow-capped mountains with the mighty Kanchenjunga (King of the Mountains) dominating the somber, snowy sentinels, lies a jewel of a town -- elegant, complicated and extremely beautiful; the name of Tibetan origin means where Indra's thunderbolt or scepter rested, (Dodi-thunder bolt, Ling-place).
Sikkim, tucked away in India`s Northest corner, betwen Tibet, Bhutan and Nepal is, without question a very special part of India, beautiful, unspoilt, green, full of orchids, mountain, butterflies and monasteries, and home to some of the gentlest people you could wish to meet.
Gangtok means, aptly enough,"hill top" and the little capital of Sikkim is perched at 5500 feet high on the ridges of a valley. From Gangtok, you lookover the hillside, down and across to terraced fields, with tall, white Buddhist prayer flags fluttering in the wind, and endless stunning backdrop of towering snow capped peaks.
