    We had a great honeymoon at Sikkim, amazing hill view, tempting weather what else you want. The Tsomogo is huge lake surrounded by huge mountains on all Sides is really marvelous and the yak ride there is worth mentioning. Baba Mandir around 8 kms from TSOMOGO is also worth seeing. Ravangla is a beautiful small hill station in Sikkim. As we approached Ravangla, the big Buddha statue welcomed us. The beauty of the statue in the backdrop of sunset was awesome and unforgettable.
