    we started from Lingza, this trekking expedition took us to some of the most captivating and enthralling places of Sikkim and Gangtok. let me tell you guys Gangtok is one of the most beautiful cities of India,everyone should make a visit there at least once in their life time. We also visited the famous Buddhist monasteries and the beautiful lake as well. the trails were not so though but the area is very cool. Saw the magnificent peaks of the standing Himalayan Range. A wonderful location of north east India.
