"Denzong" (literally translates to the Hidden Valley of Rice) - A term commonly used to refer to the Kingdom of Sikkim when it was under the monarchical rule of the Namgyal Dynasty from 1642 to 1975.
Back To Denzong is a conscious attempt at rediscovering Sikkim's almost forgotten but deeply revered heritage through mindful exploration & experiential travel. Having studied the history of Sikkim's royal past during my month long trip across the region, I present to you an immersive, customisable itinerary - one that interweaves heritage with nature.
Hand-pick experiences from my 'Back to Denzong' catalogue and I will map out* an experiential itinerary for you.
