The tiny state of Sikkim is known for its orchids. Gangtok boasts of an excellent Orchid Sanctuary, while many hotels and resorts in the state have their own orchid collections. My visit to Gangtok did not coincide with the time of the year when Orchids bloom. Yet, I got to see many flowers as I walked along the lush slopes of the town. A few pictures here. I would be grateful for any help in identifying them.
