One of the great attractions of Sikkim is the wild flowers at high altitude. After climbing heights above 10,000 feet where coniferous vegetation is not very prominent, you get to see forests full of rhododendron trees loaded with colourful flowers. They vary from plain white, yellow to deep pink. In some places, there are only rhododendrons for miles and miles where-ever you look around. The forest is filled with the color of the flowers - a memorable treat for the eyes.
