Sikkim’s Pakyong Airport Set Amidst Himalayas Is Giving Us Major Airport Goals

Planning to visit Sikkim? You earlier had to get down at Bagdogra Airport and then travel uphill for more than 100 kms to reach the quaint, picturesque town of Gangtok.

But from 23rd September, you need not book your flight tickets to Bagdogra because Sikkim is getting its own airport and the 100th functional airport in India at Pakyong which is situated amidst Himalayas at a magnanimous height of 4500 ft.
