Posted on: Monday, 16th December 2013

All you travel buffs out there. This one is for you. In a bid to showcase its mountainous beauty, ancient Tibetan Buddhist culture and adventure sports, Sikkim is all set to host a three-day winter carnival ahead of Christmas.

The festivities, which will begin on December 22, will witness unique performances by local artists.

According to Bhim Dhungel, Tourism minister, Sikkim, the carnival's motive is to promote state's traditional culture, cuisine and organic products.

From paragliding, Sellep Tanki to mountain biking, the carnival will host exciting adventure sports.

Tourists visiting various hotels during the carnival would be treated to gastronomic delights prepared by local chefs.

Various popular hotels and restaurants have also made special arrangements for vegetarian and fruit meals for fitness freaks.

Social media and mobile devices will be utilised to provide information about the carnival to attract tech savvy potential holidaymakers to the hilly destination.

Domestic tourists from West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and international tourists from Japan, Europe and England head in large numbers to India's cleanest state.

An average of seven lakh tourists visited the state last year and the number is expected to rise to 10 lakh this year, said Bhungel.
