New Age Pilgrim

Our Pick!
Fluent English
1 year experience
A highly experienced company providing high altitude trekking and cultural tours operating in the misty mountain state of Sikkim, India. Our base of experience lies in our journey into what it is like to seek adventure. It's certainly not just the thrill of sheer cliffs or majestic views (of which there are plenty)! Sikkim always had a lot more to offer to the many travellers that visited over the centuries. The difference lies in how you open your mind and heart to see the virtues, character, and warmth in its people, the sanctitude and profound value of its traditions, religions and ubiquitous prayer flags and the deep echo of spiritual significance in its breathtaking mountains and valleys. If there are meaning and purpose in what we do, it lies in what this unique and mystical state has to offer; where the landscapes are more than just majestic peaks and the culture is always more than just a story.

Continue trekking in the sub-tropical terrain.

  • The same terrain persists till Tshoka from where the route takes a temperate hue.
