Sikkim is a small region wedged in between the eastern border of Nepal and
Bhutan. Until India annexed it in 1975 it was an independent kingdom. This move
was undoubtedly motivated by India's fear of the growing Chinese influence in
the Himalayas. Sikkim is culturally linked to its neighbors Nepal and Bhutan,
and Tibet to the north. Because of its remoteness it does have a specific flavor
of its own.
