North Sikkim, Mythical moments

Magical valleys and mythical moments in Sikkims northern disctrict. It is sheer magic - the sparkle of snow, awesome gorges, spining chilling trails, the lure of mountains and the quaint lifestyle of semi-nomadic yak herders and rare tribal societies. North Sikkim is still yet unexplored and what remains hidden makes it even more longed for.
