ZULUK - THE PARADISE UNEXPLORED
Located at the height of around 10,100 ft on the rugged terrain of the lower Himalayas in east sikkim, Zuluk or Dzuluk is a small village beside a winding road. It was once a transit point to the historic silk Route from Tibet to India . it is relatively an emerging and offbeat destination in east sikkim. This small village accommodates a population of around 700 people.There is also an Indian army base camp at zuluk, which has been used as a transit camp for the army movement to the Chinese border, a few kilometers away. it is the very first village within this whole silk route to offer home stay facilities for tourists. zuluk itself doesn't offer views of the snow peaks but only 14 kms away the thambi view point offers panoramic view of the entire Mt. Kanchenjunga range.
