Tour Code: OT05We will take you through a gastronomical journey of Sikkim on this food tour where you will be introduced to the culture and tradition of Sikkim, their popular drink, food, dining experience, and cooking methodology. We believe that food is the way to happiness. At least, a part of it. Come, indulge those taste buds.
