Under the guarding
presence of 'Kanchanjunga' the 3rd highest mountain in the world revered by Sikkimese as
their protective deity, lies the small beautiful and magical former kingdom of Sikkim.
Known for its remoteness, majesty, magic and mystery, Sikkim, forbidden to the outside
world for decades, is now open to you with a promise of awesomely beautiful vistas of
mountains, lakes, monasteries and people.
The Lepchas are
said to be Sikkim's earliest original inhabitants. Lepchas call themselves 'Rongtub' or
'Mutanchi' meaning 'dearest people of mother earth'. The Lepchas together with the Bhutias
and Nepalese each adding their unique colour to Sikkimese culture live in Good Harmony.
