ARITAR TRAVEL GUIDE

Aritar is a small town in Eastern Sikkim, and a comfortable retreat into the forests for the off-the-beaten-track traveller. It is here that you see the abundance of nature, as forests, glacial lakes, snow covered mountains, and quaint monasteries tucked in the midst of peaks, valleys and paddy fields. Aritar is untouched in its natural beauty, and a welcome antidote to the modern noise and din.

Located in Silk Route Sikkim, Aritar also gives multiple options for adventure sports and trekking.

Climate And Best Time To Visit

Aritar is colder than most of the towns in Sikkim, being on the edge of the Himalayas. This makes it receive ample snowfall, and has a beauty of its own in the light winter months. The best time to visit is January or April-June.

Getting There & Getting Around Aritar

The best way to tour around the town is to book a private taxi. Aritar is a remote area and not many options are available in the town, so it is preferable to pre-book a taxi before reaching there.

SIGHTSEEING & ACTIVITIES

Aritar has beautiful sites around it, and even more breath taking scenery, wherever you go. Sightseeing is a rewarding experience here, in every way.

PARBATEYSWAR SHIVALAYA MANDIR

This is a small temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva as the “Ishwar” of Devi Parvati. Many religious tourists throng to this temple, especially during the holy “Shraavan Maas,” a particularly sacred month in the Hindu calendar, dedicated to worship of Lord Shiva. There is no entrance fee. It is a quiet and peaceful location, which is best suited for the spiritual travellers. One can spend time here and be in a meditative space or just connect with the nature.

LAMPOKHARI LAKE

This is one of the oldest natural lakes in Sikkim, located at an altitude of 4500 ft. It is a popular spot, surrounded by lush greenery and placid surroundings. It has recently been constructed to allow boating, the only lake in Sikkim which has boating facilities. Boating gives a different view of the surrounding hills. There are facilities of horse riding and archery also around the lake, for those looking for more activities. It also hosts the Lampokhari Festival in the months of April & May, which is ideal for the spiritually inclined travellers. It includes flower shows, cultural performances, and sampling of local cuisine. There is also a small temple dedicated to Lord Padmasambhava on the banks of the lake. A short trek from the lake leads to Mankhim Dara, a small temple, and a community of Rai people. Adventure tourism in the form of rock climbing and para gliding is also available here.

Aritar is a reminder of all that is beautiful in the world, and a short walk away from the regular routine humdrum of everyday life. It is a must visit destination for all those who seek tranquillity and a journey to remember.
