    What are some of the best trekking routes in Sikkim?
    And beyond Gangtok, what are some amazing hidden places that few people visit?
    Also, please provide details about what the tourism industry is like in Sikkim? Is it developed or still developing?

    Hi DjTravels,

    There are lots of trekking destinations in Sikkim and everyone will have a slightly different opinion to what they find is better than the other. I am providing you with the common list of trekking places in Sikkim which are considered to be in the top 10 list.

    Sikkim Dzongri Trek
    This may be the ideal trekking destination for you, as while on the trek you will be going through some of the less known places in Sikkim. While on the trek you can see some snow covered mountain, scenic views and beautiful exotic birds, an ideal place for photographers.
    This is a short altitude trek.

    Dzongri Trek
    During this trek, you can view Mt. Pandim and Kanchenjunga. This is known for being one of the easiest treks and yet the paradise of treks in Sikkim, as you get you go through many mountains and also enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

    Goechala Trek

    This is another trek where you can explore the unknown regions of Sikkim. While on this trek you will come across some beautiful valleys, mountains and some wildlife. You will also be trekking through some pine forests and see some oak trees. This trek also offers trekkers to camp on the way.

    Singalila Trek
    Singalila Trek is best known for being a place where you can view the mountains Everest, Makalu, Kangchenjunga, and Lhotse. You will also go through some beautiful pine forests and can also make your way to the Singalila National Park.

    You can visit the Hidden Forest Retreat, where you would find very fewer tourists and be able to get some peace and quiet amongst the beautiful views of surroundings.

    The tourism in Sikkim has developed quite a lot and is still developing as well where it is needed. The number of tourists in Sikkim is increasing as time goes by, as more and more people are becoming aware of such places in India.
