Sikkim The state of Himalaya



Sikkim is a delight to travel. An Indian State surrounded by the great Himalayan mountains. The scenic beauty is heavenly. Recently I had an opportunity to travel to Gangtok, the capital city of Sikkim. The city is built in the heart of the Mountain ranges so don’t be afraid to climb and to decent a lot during the day, it is like hiking whenever you step out of the hotel.


Gangtok is a place where you can go and enjoy the weather, meditate and inhale all the scenic beauty or if you love some action then there is a lot of adventure sports you can check out but if you plan to shop then probably it is not the best destination. There is only one road which has been converted into a walking plaza, it is called as mall road, where you will find many restaurant and shops of different kinds ranging from international brands to local merchandise shops. 

Reaching Gangtok is a 4 hrs drive from Darjeeling or 4 hrs drive from the nearest airport which is situated at Bagdogra, but rest assure that your dive won’t be boring because you will encounter a lot of natural beauties. 

Well if you think Sikkim is the destination for you then perhaps you might like to add Darjeeling and Pelling to your Itinerary as well, they are all nearby and famous tourist circuit and it can only be covered by Jeeps or SUV.

  2. India is a multi destination travel getaway! West has Rajasthan which is famous for its amazing forts, South has destination like Kerala, which is famous for its backwaters, East has Sikkim, Darjeeling & Kolkata and finally North which is famous for Kashmir, Delhi etc. Todd it's difficult to choose, like the United States, India too has too many things to offer, only depends what is your taste in travel. If you have any specific query then feel free to shoot me a mail at explorersedition@gmail.com.

This post will be about a rather strange but very popular snack from Scotland! It is surprisingly very tasty as well.  It is popularly known as the deep fried Mars bar, yes I said, Mars bar the famous chocolate bar. This dish was not introduced nor endorsed by the company but
originated at chip shops in Scotland.

The outcome of this process is a wonderfully hot sweet fried treat which for your information very unhealthy so don't have too much of them at any cost.
