Taken at Gurudongmar lake in north Sikkim at an altitude of 17000 feet plus. Averse to putting my own photos but the logic of my daughter, for once, was acceptable and it’s a nice change from my usual phool patti nature shots that I love to upload. Shows I am amenable to change at times. Thanks to my daughter for taking the shot #normalfilter #sikkimtourism #whereisnortheast #gurudongmar #gurudongmarlake #northsikkim #sikkimadventures #discoversikkim #india #incredibleindia #travels

As a small kid, I always dreamt of playing in the snow. But when I actually got a chance to experience it, it was a storm in the Himalayan ranges of Sikkim near Gangtok when it snowed continuously for 4hrs. I was stuck in an Army base amidst snow and lots of other tourists as all the cars were skidding on the snow. It was the most exciting, memorable and scary experience I had in Sikkim.

😊😊**150th post **😊😊 .
When we started this journey with our bikes, we knew it wouldn't be easy. Undoubtedly it did not disappoint us. As we started from Siliguri, the third largest city of West Bengal it started raining heavily. As we were climbing the hills towards new jalpaiguri rain made even more difficult. The hair pin bends, the fog, slippery roads and more over the slippery railway tracks made us to think did we make the right decision to visit this place. All started to look grey and glim. The beautiful views were covered with fog and our only motto now was to reach the destination as early as possible. With no clue we slept that day and the next morning when we woke up there was magic. Something that made us mesmerized. This was the picture taken on the day 😊

My kind of Monday!
Lots of morning rain cleared to give us these views from a beautiful monastery in the hills of Sikkim. This is such a beautiful part of the country.

Mornings as seen from the ridge in Gangtok... towards nathu la pass... worth getting up in the mornings for a walk or cycle #incredibleindia #whereisnortheast #sikkimtourism #gangtok #morning #discoversikkim #sikkimadventures #everyday_sikkim #normalfilter

Finally I am back to the writing mode. Currently I am writing blog on my first hand experience of North East India, i.e. Sikkim along with 2 day stay in Darjeeling, the tea estate of West Bengal. I hope to finish it by the end of this week 😊

Early morning - Mangan, Sikkim
.
We started our journey from Mangan, a beautiful town which connects the north Sikkim to the rest, at 4:30am. We were stopped at Chungtang check post for the permit. This is how the conversation went.

Me: Sir, the permit
Police: where is the permit
Me: This the permit
Police: This is not the permit
Me: 🤔😭
(Requests or recommendations never work here)(We took Sikkim tourist permit instead of police permits which is one of the essential documents when you are travelling to North and East Sikkim)

Feeling dejected we drove back to Mangan, reached the place at 6 am and got another good news that DM office (from where the permits are made for North Sikkim) will open only at 10:30am.
Depressed us, came back to our hotel and settled down near the window. Then for a split second this happened. The skies cleared to one of the spectacular view and we had the most amazing feeling ever.
Travel teaches you everything. Never get disappointed by something that happens around you. Just remember, the best is yet to come.

Enchey Monastery is approximately 200 years old and is located 3 km northeast of Gangtok. It belongs to the Nyingma order of Vajrayana Buddhism. The location was blessed by Lama Drupthob Karpo, a renowned exponent of tantric art adept in Buddhism with flying powers. It is believed that initially a small Gompa was established by him after which he flew from Maenam Hill in South Sikkim to this site. The literal meaning of ‘Enchey Monastery’ is ‘the solitary temple’. It is also said that the Monk built a small hermitage at the site of the monastery, after he came here flying from Maenam Hill in South Sikkim.
