Starting From Heart



Sikkim was its own mountain kingdom till 1975 and still retains a very distinctive personality. The meditative, mural-filled traditional monasteries of Tibetan Buddhism coexist with Hindu shrines of the ever-growing Nepali community, with both religions creating some astonishing latter-day mega-sculptures to adorn the skyline. In sync with the Zen of rich culture, beautiful natural landscapes, myths and legends, and the friendliest people, where its prosperity, philosophy and divinity can only make its way through clear and clean surroundings.
