Gangtok – Dzongu
A special early morning trip has been arranged to take you to Tsuklakhang, the royal chapel of Namgyals of Sikkim.
After breakfast, you will drive to Dzongu in North Sikkim. This is the preserved land of the Lepcha tribe, believed to be the original inhabitants of Sikkim. As the protected area is demarcated solely for the Lepcha community, outsides are not allowed to settle here; hence, preserving the genetic purity of the tribal population.
En route you will visit the beautiful Karma Thubten Tashi Cho Khorling Monastery at Phodong, which came into the international limelight because of the famous French explorer Alexander David Neel.
You will enjoy a delicious lunch using locally grown farm ingredients at Planters Home, Mangan.
We’ve also arranged a short interaction session just before dinner during which you can chit-chat with the locals.
You will spend the night at a homestay in Passingdang.
