Sikkhim

Sikkim, one of the smallest states of India, nestles in the eastern Himalayas amidst orchids and oranges, fanned by colorful butterflies and overlooked by the enchanting Himalayan peak, Kanchenjunga.

In the north Sikkim stretches up to the great Himalayan range; in the east the Donkya range separates Sikkim from Tibet; in the west the Singalila range separates the state from Nepal; to the south of Sikkim is West Bengal. It is India's 22nd state.
