Sikkim Darjeeling Sikkim provides a wide potential in tourism that has yet largely remained unexploited. The perennially snow-capped mountains, lush green tropical and temperate forests, gurgling streams and the rich flora and fauna - a true Shangrila or "Nye-mae-el" which simply means 'heaven'. Situated in North East India, just south of Sikkim, Darjeeling provides the perfect ambiance of a hill resort with it's mild climate and laid back charm. Its verdant hills and valleys are steeped in colour, and are interspersed with vast streatches of rolling green tea gardens. Presiding over all this is Mt. Kangchenjunga, the third highest mountain on Earth, looming over the northern horizon, giving a magical aura to the land that leaves one's senses intoxicated.
