Sikkim is a North-Eastern state of India, right in the bosom of the Eastern Himalayas. It is referred to as the only ‘Brother’ state to the ‘7 Sisters’ in India.
Sikkim is notable for its “biodiversity, including alpine and subtropical climates, as well as being a host to Kangchenjunga, the highest peak in India and third highest on Earth.”
It is also interesting to note that in Hindu religious texts, Sikkim is known as Indrakil, the garden of the god of war, Indra.
