- No medical facility available except Indian Army Base camp Hospital. So better carry some first aid kit and basic medicines you might require. Paracetamols, antacids etc are good to keep on any travel.

Sikkim is well worth the visit and a very different pace from the rest of India... in fact most times I had to remind myself I was in India....
Enjoy the photos!!
