River Teesta

 

 

Anyone travelling in Sikkim by road cannot but be impressed by the mighty Teesta River.

 

Teesta(Tista) River is a 315 km long river that rises in the eastern Himalayas.  It flows through the states of Sikkim and West Bengal in India and through Bangladesh before entering the Bay of Bengal.

Flowing through the length of Sikkim, the Teesta River is considered to be the lifeline of the state. 

The Teesta River originates from the Pahunri (or Teesta Kangse) glacier above 7,068 metres (23,189 ft), and flows southward through gorges and rapids in the Sikkim Himalaya.

It is fed by rivulets and tributaries Rangit, Rangpo.  

A number of hydroelectric projects and dams have been built on this river.  The Teesta river dam projects have been approved with the requirement that they adopt suitable seismic coefficient in the design for the dam, tunnel, surge shaft and power house. The projects are cascaded over the length of the river, do not store large amounts water, have small reservoirs, and therefore the projects are expected to have very low risk from the reservoir induced seismic activity  in the area.

 

Melli (also spelled Malli) is a town on the West Bengal-Sikkim border near the River Teesta.

Lepchas are among the indigenous peoples of Sikkim, India and number between 30,000 and 50,000.   The Dzongu valley, an officially demarcated reserve for Lepcha community bordering Khangchendzonga Biosphere Reserve, known for its vast plant wealth is one of the least attended areas on ethnomedicinal aspects, for being sacred and restricted, especially to outsiders.

Visit- February 19th to 28th, 2020

 

Four of us, me, husband, brother and wife made a memorable road trp to Sikkim in the month of February 2020, and managed coming back just before the nation was caught in a lock-down.  Reliving the memories of that trip has been a pleasurable past-time during the lock down!

 

 

 

According to ABP live, since the corona pandemic reached Indian shore, the state of Sikkim has remained completely virus free.  Early measures taken by the state have so far been effective in keeping the virus at bay.  Since the state has a border with China, it was on high alert and very early issued mandatory screening at the border.  Even though tourist season had just started the state still ordered a ban on foreign tourists on 5 March.  And even before the nationwide lock-down, Sikkim declared self-quarantine by March 17.  Borders with neighboring state West Bengal were also closely monitored.

There are some other features of this Indian state which could have been a deterrent.  

Sikkim is the first fully organic state in the country.  Sikkim  has  registered a 4 percent increase in the state's forest cover since 1993. 

The total forest and tree cover of the State as per the latest India State of Forest Report 2017 is 3379 sq. km (47.62% of the total geographical area of the state)

In Feb 2020, when Aadu(Peach) trees were in full bloom and rhododendron were beginning to bloom, we entered Sikkim.  The date is 19th February,2020. This short video tells it all
