Why Sikkim in Winters is a Great Idea – Winter Wonderland

“Let’s go to Bhutan!”, said my husband,Β “No, let’s go to Thailand!”, I said.

We were confused where to go for a week during winters this year.Β 

“Let’s go to Sikkim!! It will be our hat-trick trip to the Himalayas!!!” said Deepak beaming with excitement, the earlier ones being Leh-Ladakh and Kinnaur-Spiti.

It turned out to be such an amazing decision to visit Sikkim in winters! Winters in Sikkim start from November and stay until March. Sikkim is a beautiful place, and more so, during winters, with its icy-cold weatherΒ and clear skies!

In this post, we shall share few breathtaking pictures of Sikkim in winters from our trip which will allure you to visit this winter wonderland soon! Hope you like them. πŸ™‚
