Sikkim named top region to visit in 2014 by Lonely Planet

2:25 AM - 31 January 2014 ( 0 Votes ) 
The scenic northeast Indian state of Sikkim has been named the best region to visit in 2014 by Lonely Planet, a leading global travel guide. A little over 5 years ago I made a three month journey to India and was fortunate enough to be able to travel to the region of Sikkim. This short 25 minute film documents my travels with Rico Zook international permaculture teacher who travels parts of Sikkim working with NGOS and communities around using permaculture. Sikkim was what James Hilton might have imagined when he wrote Lost Horizon, a true portal into an unknown world. Put it on your bucketlist if you want to get closer to Heaven before you die.
