MOU between Khorlo Tours & Travels (P) Ltd and Directorate of Sikkim, Govt.of Sikkim

We are very happy to announce that a MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) is signed between Directorate of Ecotourism – (DoE), FEWMD, Govt.of Sikkim and Khorlo Tours & Travels (P) LTD. We will work collaboratively to promote, market and sell the ecotourism products and packages being developed through the JICA assisted Sikkim Biodiversity Conservation and Forest Management Project (SBFP).

Probably no other state in the Himalaya is more suited to ecotourism development as is Sikkim the land of the mystique! It’s not easy to find Sikkim on the map unless one is specifically looking for it. With its unique location bordering the Kingdom of Bhutan, Nepal, Tibet and West Bengal, what Sikkim lacks in size is made up in the grandeur of its Himalayan Scenery, the melting snow from the peaks cascades down mountain sides to form numerous waterfalls, rivers and valleys! The true grandeur of Sikkim however is to be discovered in the variety of its Himalayan Flora & scenery. With its elements of nature based tourism highlighting unique natural, floral, faunal & cultural diversity, the IHCAE has now decided to market its unique rural areas to responsible tourists thus improving the welfare of its local communities through active participation in the ecotourism process.

Sikkim homestays offer an excellent opportunity to observe and understand the life style and customs of local communities and provide an unique opportunity to stay with the local people in their homes. Travelers can witness the everyday life of local communities at close quarters by participating in the day-to-day activities of the host family. Besides, they indicate a spirit of entrepreneurship amongst local communities, ushering a new and sustainable channel for economic benefits.

Directorate of Ecotourism and Khorlo Tours & Travels (P) LTD will work together to proactively enhance the ecotourism profile of Sikkim State through mutual respect, common understanding, teamwork and collaborative arrangements. For any type of special interested trips for Sikkim, please mail us at mailkhorlo@gmail.com. The identified zones of ecotourism are as follows.
