A snow-filled December

SMU is launching a new initiative – a community service project in Sikkim. Actually, it’s a continuation of the Dare to Dream expedition to Sikkim, but more community based and less adventurous, with a focus on developing and promoting eco-tourism in Sikkim. For starters, Sikkim is the second smallest and the least populated state in India. It lies in the north-east, landlocked among Bhutan, China and Tibet, and is the base for the snow-capped peak of Kangchenjunga, the third highest in the world. The pictures look so amazing, even on the non-picturesque wikipedia 🙂 But seriously, check it out on Flickr or Webshots. It looks awesome, amid all the snow and the blues and the greens. I think I could live there forever. I hope I’m going to be spending my December in this snowy little place!
