Zuluk is a hamlet located in the lower Himalayas, at an altitude of 3000 meters. It is located in East Sikkim, near the Indo-China border. It is comparatively a new and offbeat tourist destination. In fact, special permits are required to tour Zuluk . Previously, it was a part of the popular silk route connecting Kalimpong to Tibet and was mainly used by traders traveling to Tibet. In winters, the entire area around Zuluk gets covered in snow and after the rains in September, this whole region is covered in wild flowers of all types. However, this small village of Zuluk is used as a base to see one of the most magnificient sunrise over Mt. Kanchenjungha. . Some of the forests situated around Zuluk are completely unexplored and offer a variety of flora. Various kinds of animals found in the wild forests include Deer, Himalayan Bears, Wild Dogs, Red Pandas, Tigers and Snow Leopard. The list of birds includes Monal Pheasant, Khaleez Pheasant, Blood Pheasant, Snow Pheasant and many more.  The three-level zigzag roads of Zuluk offers beautiful views of the Kanchenjunga and its mountain range.
