About Package

 

 

High in the Himalayas, bordering Tibet, the former kingdom of Sikkim is a land of flowers, forests and holy splendours, still relatively untouched by commercialism

Sikkim is India’s highest state, with peaks above 6,330 metres (21,000 ft). Kanchenjunga (8,500 metres/28,200 ft), the third highest summit in the world, is believed to be the abode of a god of the same name, a fiery character with a red face who wears a crown made of. five skulls and rides a snow lion. Legend has it that, at the peak, this god buried five sacred treasures — salt, gems, sacred books, medicines and a suit of armour. Best of Sikkim Tour…

Until the 18th century, the inhabitants of Sikkim were mainly Lepchas, cultivators of Mongol origin who came from Tibet in the 8th century. The first kings of Sikkim were the Namgyals descended from the Minyaks of Tibet. Khye-Bumsa, a Namgyal prince, helped in the building of the Sa-Kya Monastery in Central Tibet in 1268. He befriended the Lepchas, and swore a blood brotherhood with their chief, Thekongtek. When Thekongtek died, the Lepchas turned for leadership to Gum Tashi, Khye-Bumsa’s fourth son, who was consecrated king (chogyal) in 1642. In 1700 the Bhutanese invaded Sikkim and the young chogyal, Chador, was forced into exile. He built monasteries at Pemayangtse and Tashiding and invented the Lepcha alphabet. He was assassinated in 1717 on the orders of his pro-Bhutanese half-sister, Pei Womgmo. Best of Sikkim Tour…

The early 19th century saw the East India Company entering the Himalayas with a view to opening up trade with Tibet. In 1814, in the Anglo-Nepal wars, Sikkim sided with the company and received as a reward in 1816 parts of the Nepali Terai. As a friendly gesture, King Tsugphud Namgyal gave the East India Company the hill of Darjeeling for development as a resort. Relations soured and following a quarrel over the illegal collection of taxes by the British in Sikkim, the British annexed the Terai and established a protectorate over the kingdom. Since the 18th century Nepalis have flowed into Sikkim and they now constitute 75 Percent of the population. Best of Sikkim Tour…

When British rule india ended, the government of independent India entered into a similar arrangement with the chogyal. Sikkim was not wholly merged with the Indian Union. In 1975, however, the Sikkim Parliament voted for the incorporation of the kingdom into India. The monarchy was abolished and Sikkim became a state. Best of Sikkim Tour…
