Travel Tips For Tourists In Sikkim

Engaging a Guide is a good way to explore Sikkim.

The flora of the land is in a delicate balance so take care while undertaking treks.

Foreigners require an Inner Line Permit to visit Sikkim. The permit can be obtained from the Sikkim Tourism Office in New Delhi, Kolkata, Siliguri and Rangpo or from a registered travel agent.

The Inner Line Permit allows foreigners stay for an initial period of 15 days. This can be extended to another total of 30 days.

Foreigners also need a Protected Area Permit to undertake certain treks. This is generally issued for a group with specified number of people.

It is customary to leave a donation behind when visiting monasteries.
