SIKKIM: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


38 YEARS OF STATEHOOD!

It was on 16th May  in 1975 that Sikkim became a part of Indian Union.

It is a land-locked mountainous state.

Floriculture is an extremely important sub-sector under horticulture for Sikkim.

More than 5,000 flowering plants, 39 species of rhododendron(i.e 48% of world’s variety), cymbidium orchids, rose, lillium, alstoemeira, zanteschia, gerbera and carnations are showcased to the domestic and world tourists.

Along with UNESCO, the government is promoting six national parks as part of the eastern Himalayan biodiversity region as tourist destinations.

Gangtok Hotel and Resorts group is operating the first on-shore casino which is drawing a good number of international tourists.

 The state government has worked hard  to put Sikkim on the tourist map .It’s development in terms of infrastructure is significant.

Come have a ‘dekho’!
