Sikkim is the latest region to add carnivals to promote tourism. It is gearing up to host the first winter carnival this December.
So if you still haven't booked your Christmas holiday, this is a good option. The carnival will be celebrated from December 22-24.
The first winter carnival will promote its ancient Tibetan Buddhist culture, cuisine and organic products.
Sikkim is also great for adventure sports and witnesses a lot of international tourists from Japan, Europe and England.
It has reportedly spent close to Rs 1 crore to organise this winter carnival. Let's see if it proves to be worth it and not turn out to be another Commonwealth Games.
