The part two of my journey to Baiguney, Sikkim! A delightful experience!
So E is for East and case in point here North East, I realized I have my travelogue of Sikkim half done, so I thought I might as well take up with this opportunity to write about Baiguney, Sikkim and complete it.
I gave you an overall brief of things or shall we call it preview of things in the last post, the next day (technically Day 2 but practically Day 1 since we reached Sikkim only in the evening) started with all the presentations from the bloggers who attended the event. I was amazed at the vast variety of experience covered, while Arun’s and Vishal’s pictures kept us spell bounded, Mridula’s determination for making it to Everest Base camp inspired us and Priya had me stunned with the idea of who she collected funds for her Antarctica travel. Listening to Rakhi talking about her solo backpacking in India was when the idea of solo backpacking (which I am gonna do soon!) was seeded in my head. So after spending half a day in the conference room and actually feeling good about it, we decided to go visit the famous Shiva mandir in Baiguney. When we reached the temple, it was fully covered in fog but still was a sight.
Next day morning we went for a short walk/trek to Chakun, which was absolutely breath taking. Gorgeous flowers, beautiful scenery, serene atmosphere, it was almost we were transported to another world in itself. Sikkim is truly beautiful and every part seems to be so pristine and pretty.
and Part 3 coming up soon , may be in S may be something else 😉

I’ll remember this when we visit Sikkim next! We missed the Shiva the first time around. Love those monasteries too! And some of the giant ferns we saw as we drove around – we were told they were cooked and eaten. Lovely pictures, Monika. I look forward to your updates about this trip!
