Zuluk, also known as ‘Dzuluk’ or ‘Jhuluk’, is an old-world hamlet in East Sikkim. It lies on the rugged terrain of the lower Himalayan ranges, nestled at an altitude of 10,000 ft. Indeed, one of the most offbeat and obscure places to visit in Sikkim, the town is a hidden gem. It is blessed with a surreal location, having centre stage access to the exquisite hills and valleys of the state. In fact, the Kanchenjunga is in clear view from the town.
Did you know, it was once a transit point for the ancient Silk Route, from India to Tibet? Traders would frequently use the town as an overnight base, whilst travelling through the mountain pass. The journey usually began in Kalimpong, weaving past Pedong, Aritar, Zuluk and Jelepla, and finally reaching Chumbi valley in Tibet! How wonderful would it be to visit a town that is so deeply rooted in the past? It’s almost like going back in time. With Club Mahindra resorts in Sikkim, you can travel to this mountain oasis. It is surrounded by wild forest. So, if you’re lucky, you may get a glimpse of the Himalayan Bear or Red Panda! There have also been tiger sightings in the area. What’s more, several exotic bird species can be spotted. From the Blood Pheasant to the Himalayan Monal and Kalij Pheasant, this is a wildlife enthusiast’s dream come true. After all, bird watching is one of the most enriching things to do in Sikkim. The most special part is the hills are covered with thousands of blooming Rhododendrons during summer. So, expect a riot of colours!
