Currently, not in operation. Those interested in Sikkim’s history can share their email at thegangtokwalk@gmail. Am working on a guide to the tour. Hello. My name is Yash. I'm a resident of Gangtok. I have always had an interest in the history of Sikkim. Being an avid reader, I have consumed books about the history of Sikkim, attended interviews of an oral history projects and pored over transcripts of the British Raj in Sikkim to provide a first-of-its-kind experience in Sikkim, after which you'll never see it the same again.

A first of its kind heritage tour of Gangtok shedding light on the political history of Sikkim, from the Maharajas to the Democratic movement. Some stories deserve a retelling.
