This picturesque place is a must visit for who tour Sikkim. When we reached this place in the late afternoon it was very cold and covered in mist.

I don't think of India as a place that gets snow, yet up in the altitude, it would. This looks like a nice place to explore.

It does snow in India in the North Eastern part close to the Himalayas. It is a pleasant site.

Isn't it funny how you get an image of a place in your mind and then when you read 'it gets snow' it is hard to imagine because I think of India as being hot and dry. Beautiful photos - the mist added to the atmosphere.

Looks like it warmed up in the afternoon though, based on the way your boys are dressed (and oh my goodness they are growing up!) Very impressive statue there.

The mosaic made me take a second look at the first picture of the Buddha. It wasn't until I saw the boys in the foreground that I realized its size. Gigantic!
