On my many travels over the years, few have given me the sense of peace so profound as my time in Rinchenpong has. Also known as the Silent Valley, in west Sikkim, it is a haven for the tired and the heavy-hearted, the ones looking for a break in the true sense of the word. This little town is perfect for a detox vacation.
