Sikkim is a state in northeast India that has borders with Bhutan, Tibet, and Nepal. It was an independent mountain kingdom till May 16, 1975, after it became India’s 22nd state. The state is a maze of tumbling, steep valleys thick with lush subtropical woods and rhododendron groves that soar to the spectacular snowy peaks of the eastern Himalaya in the north.
