North Sikkim

North Sikkim is the largest district by area out of the four districts of the state of Sikkim. The district has a largely mountainous terrain with dense vegetation all the way up to the alpine altitude before thinning out to desert scrub towards the Northern Tundra. North Sikkim is also the most prone district to landslides that are caused by melting snow beds on top of the mountains or by the erosive action of the rains. Most of the population of North district reside near the district headquarter, Mangan which is situated at an altitude of 610 m above sea level. It is also in North Sikkim where the world’s second-highest mountain peak Kanchenjunga (8000 m) is located, straddling its eastern border with Nepal and can be seen clearly from the town of Singhik.

Occupying the southeast corner of the state of Sikkim, lies the beautiful district of East Sikkim. Surrounded by North District on the Northern side and South & West districts on the western side, East Sikkim hosts the capital of the state and also the district headquarters, Gangtok. The district shares international borders with the People’s Republic of China and Bhutan. East Sikkim covers a total area of 964 sq km.
