A virgin and hidden paradise on Earth , Uttarey : West Sikkim, India
It was six in the morning. We just came out of our small little hut in the lap of Himalayan rainforest. On one side the lush green valley has been waiting for us, on the other side lies the beautiful blue mountains standing tall high. It was misting all around. I had been so engrossed enjoying the divine beauty of nature I didn't notice somebody is standing next to me - an old lady. She was wearing a full length dress with long sleeves and a yellow hat with a gentle smile in her face. She whispered in my ears, 'Go Son, the place is yours, enjoy it in the best way you can'.
Uttarey valley (7600ft) in West Sikkim is considered to be one of the finest places on earth. It is not only well-known for its natural habitat, but also for amazing landscapes, wonderful people with rich culture and sense of hospitality. Uttarey is part of the Singalila National Park and Kanchenjunga National park, which are both famous for various herbs, waterfalls and hilltops.
