The nature, culture, and wildlife of Sikkim make it the perfect place for photography. Although it is not as good for photographing wild animals as Africa, there are many birds, butterflies, and even the rare snow leopard, shapi, and blue sheep, among other things. The mountainous terrain of Sikkim provides ample opportunity for hobby or commercial photography, with excellent landscapes and nature. There are so many customs, traditions, and costumes in Sikkim that people must wear. They also wear masks at certain times specially during festival. In addition to snowy mountain peaks and the country’s 4000 species of flowers, photographically interesting landscapes can be taken.
