Sikkim, Mar 15 (ANI): Tucked away in the lap of the majestic Himalayas, Sikkim, the second smallest state in the country, charms the visitors with its charismatic beauty. Sikkim is arguably one of the loveliest destinations in India. Homestay Sikkim offers the visitors an experience and an opportunity to live with the locals and share their lifestyle. People of Yaakten, a small hamlet in East Sikkim, have joined hands to start this community-based “homestay tourism” to attract visitors and also improve their socio-economic condition. Some eight families are engaged in homestay business and they have developed an infrastructure which is being appreciated. Apart from Yaakten homestay, there are other homestays in Sikkim which have grown in recent times such as Orchid homestay, Guras homestay, Chakha homestay, Kothebari homestay, etc. Besides offering homestay to the travellers, Yaakten has marvelous views of the Kanchenjunga range and the lush green valleys of Sikkim. Yaakten is a peaceful place to spend a wonderful weekend. Being in Yaakten one can witness the rich cultural heritage of Sikkim people and enjoy the local cuisine and beverages.
