India is one of the largest countries as well as democracies of the world. Apart from its huge size, the country boasts of cultural and geographical diversities, which make it a popular tourist destination. People coming here on a holiday can see architectural bewilderments dotted all over the country, including the Red Fort, City Palace, Taj Mahal and Hawa Mahal. They can pay spiritual visits to revered places like Mahabodhi, Tirupati or Kashi Vishwanath Temple during India tours.

On the other hand, people having an adventurous streak can opt for hiking in the Himalayan ranges or river-rafting, snorkelling and diving in the vast water bodies passing through and surrounding the country. The challenge of trekking the rocky mountains and meadows full of mesmeric landscapes is unique. Chopta Valley, lying in Sikkim – a north-eastern state of the country, provides one such fabulous experience.

The place houses historical sites, revered shrines and several monuments, which can be visited while marching amidst orchids, rhododendrons and alpine trees. It is an idyllic place for wildlife enthusiasts, giving an opportunity to see some rare flora and fauna. Apart from breathing in the fresh air, beholding green vegetation and stunning natural beauty, they can spot uncommon species during birdwatching – a popular activity here.

Trekking from Chopta to Muguthang Valley – lying at an altitude of around 15500 feet in Himalayas – is described as one of the best experiences by frequent travellers. Trekkers get to see Gurudongmar Lake, a sacred lake for Hindus as well as Buddhists. It freezes in winters, and the experience to walk on it is unparalleled. Sightseers can go to the Thangu Valley – a beautiful place full of green vegetation – located at a driving distance of within an hour. To explore this beautiful place without any hassle, tourists can book all inclusive holiday packages, which usually include accommodation, travel and guide.
