Rumtek Monastery Sikkim, Sikkim

Standing at 1500 m (4921 ft) above sea level, Rumtek Monastery Sikkim remains a spiritual and cultural highpoint shrouded with mystery. Built in the 16th century, the monastery exudes a sense of antiquity, while the colorful and highly ornate architecture enchants at every turn. See the 4 m (13 ft) high golden stupa, bejeweled with ancient turquoise and coral, and decorated with filigree and metalwork. Feel the peaceful energy wrapping around your body, mind, and soul as you make a wish at the prayer wheels. While at the monastery, visit the Nallanda institute, a college for Buddhist monks.
