Welcome to West Sikkim
The world's third-highest mountain, Khangchendzonga, raises its sublime white peak high above landscapes of lush, forest-draped ridges. Intriguing monasteries, villages and waterfalls add appeal, plus there's some fabulous trekking. Historic Yuksom, a historic trailhead village, is a delight in its own right. Meanwhile comfort-seekers can settle for stupendous mountain views from busy little Pelling and from quieter, rural Kuluk and Rinchenpong, where you'll also find the loveable yet forgotten Resum Monastery.
