The Green Lake Area in northern Sikkim even though open to tourists, still require special restricted area permits to visit. The lake though has drained out into the adjacent Zemu glacier. The absence of the lake is compensated with splendid views all around with Kanchenjunga towering above. The peaks of Simvo like just a short distance away. In late spring between mid May and June, the valleys of North Sikkim are filled with a variety of flowers like rhododendrons, blue poppies and primulaes.
The lush green valley of Kashmir boasts of all the beautiful sights one can imagine. On this trek through the Lidder valley, we trek through high pastures with pashmina sheep lazily grazing, meadows carpeted with flowers, serene lakes, glistening glaciers with snow cappedpeaks across the Sonmas pass into the Sonmarg Valley. You get to also meet with the hospitable people, see their exquisite handicrafts and eat their scrumptious food . After years of militancy the valley is fast bouncing back to normalcy with tourist revisiting this paradise on earth.
