Aritar Tourism

Visit Aritar, the land that features prominently on the old Silk Route that bridged India to Tibet. Although a small village, Aritar is an offbeat destination for tourists who want to enjoy nature in an unspoilt form. Enveloped with emerald forests, the sweeping hills with deep gorges and occasional waterfalls, the village also holds a lot of historical significance as the British established the first police outpost in Sikkim at Aritar. Visit the valleys around Aritar to have the panoramic view of the mighty Khangchendzonga range. Falling under the Rangoli sub division in Sikkim, this village is located on the edge of Himalayas. Visit the nearby Lampokhri Lake or Aritar Lake which is one of the oldest lakes in Sikkim and the main tourist attraction of Aritar. For a more intense communion with nature, visit Mankhim Top from where the lake and the snow covered Mt Kanchenjangha look really splendid.
