Sikkim is a land of simple and happy people who are very proud of their land. Tribes like Limbu, Lepcha, Bhutia and Nepali co-exist. The state was merged into India only in the year 1962. It has been invaded for centuries by armies from Tibet and Nepal. The remains of those invasions can still be seen in its architecture and from the stories told by elders of the villages.
