Sikkim : Spiritual Himalaya Mountains

“The Himalayas, everyone has heard about it. But have you already been there? This trip opens you the doors of the Sikkim region and the most famous mountain range in the world. A punctuated stay headlights steps like the Darjeeling tea gardens and bustling streets of Kolkata, the former capital of India.”

ARRIVAL AT BADGOGRA

Welcome in India my friends!

DARJEELING

Did you know that the name of the Darjeeling tea is protected? Just like the champagne in France. Only tea grown on the lands of Darjeeling can be named “darjeeling tea”. Good to know!

PELLING

Hello you!

GANGTOK

“Namaste” is not only a way of saying “hello”. This is also the word for “goodbye”, “soon” or “good luck”.

KALIMPONG
Shake your head from left to right does not mean “no” in India. Rather, it means “yes”!

KOLKATA

Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) is the ancient capital of India. Today (in case you do not know), it is New Delhi!
