Sikkim is small but beautiful land lies almost hidden in the eastern Himalayas. Nestled between Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet and Darjeeling, Sikkim is a paradise of natural beauty. Believed to be the abode of Gods, Mount Kanchenjunga also written as Kanchenzonga (8686 meters- Third highest mountain of the world) is revered by the sikkimese as their protective deity. Religion forms an integral part of the daily lives of the Sikkimese. Until its official merge with India on 26th April 1975 Sikkim was a Buddhist Kingdom under the Nyingmapa rule for over 300 years. In witness to this fact, more that 200 monasteries can be found around this tiny Himalayan State. Even on the remotest hamlet, the fluttering of prayer flags constantly reminds one of the teachings of Lord Buddha.
