Amazing North Sikkim 2 Nights 3 Days

North-Sikkim is the best destination for those who are looking for a natural gateway to spend a few days amidst the pure nature away from the crowded city life. The weather of the North Sikkim is usually frosty cold in the winter season and pleasantly cold during the summer season. The Khangchendzonga National Park and the Shingba Wildlife Sanctuary are the major wildlife attractions in the North Sikkim. The Red Panda which is the state animal of the Sikkim is a native animal of the North region. It is the State Animal of Sikkim. The region is the heaven on Earth for the trekkers and adventure seekers with the hypnotic beauty of raw mountains, valleys, and forests. Most tourist places of the North Sikkim are restricted to the Indian citizens only due to the proximity of the India-China border and required permits to visit here.

30 minute from town.Looked like a nice enough monastery.A lot of repairs were going on and they were washing the inner Sanctum so could not go in.the priests were not friendly enough.Had seen some excellent Monastries in Bhutan.

It has both monastery as well as a Monastic University. If you are lucky you can see the Tibetian monks praying and taking classes as well. The place offers amazing view and if you are a photography lover you can spend endless time here.
