Zuluk

ZulukZuluk, with the magnificent Kanchenjungha  with its mighty range, a very rich and dense flora and fauna, chirps of innumerable never-seen-before species of birs, sloopy green mountain cultivation, the famous Jeep-La pass leading to Tibet – This are the features that build a place called Zuluk. Located at 10,000ft, Zuluk is a tiny hamlet in East Sikkim with a population of around 350 people.

Tourism is in its adolescence in Zuluk as the place got started explored only a few years back. A very small accommodating capacity of around 60-70 tourists, Zuluk remains unspoiled due to this sort of restrictions. Mostly Home stays and a few lodge have come up to cater the growing needs of tourism in the area. A local Self Help Group also provides accommodation to the tourists.

The Old Silk Route originates from Kalimpong and passes through Pedong, Aritar, Zuluk and Jelepla to Chumbi valley located in Tibet. However, after the Chinese aggression, this route was closed and Nathula was made the official corridor between India and China. In earlier days, before construction of any pucca road, traders used this route for trade with Tibet. Later, a Briton named Young Husband had used for a trip from Kalimpong to Lhasa in earlier 20th century. The track got closed in 1962 after the Indo China War errupted.

It appears, that Mother Nature had been quite spendthrift while preparing Zuluk. With abundant natural beauty and mightly Kanchenjungha in the foreground, Zuluk is rapidly becoming a very popular destination. Apart from cultivation and cattle rearing, the locals had adopted tourism as a means of earning. The socio-economic conditions of families living here in Zuluk improved quite steadily.


A paradise for Bird Watcher’s , Zuluk is becoming a hot spot in the birding map of India too. Species found in this route consists of the following including the famous Monal and Satyr Tragopan. Though a rare appearance, but a glimpse of Monal could be a life timer.
