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. After mountainous Sikkim, we visit the fertile plains of Assam to spend time with the wildlife of Kaziranga national park and with the tribes of Majuli island.
Day 1 - 3: Arrive in Bagdogra followed by journey to your homestay in South Sikkim with Bhutanese family. Over the next few days, experience the Bhutanese cooking, dances and folk songs, hikes to Meynam wildlife sanctuary which is home of deer, fox and rare red Panda. Know about the traditional tribal religions, and participate in daily chores of the Bhutanese people which include farming and local crafts.
