A frontrunner in tourism, majestic Sikkim is exploring new ways to literally rev up its tourist inflow like never before.
The beautiful landscape of Sikkim was abuzz with as many as 3000 Royal Enfield bike riders from across the nation and neighbouring Bhutan and Nepal revving up their engines for the 10 edition of North East Riders Meet which was held in this Himalayan state from October 26-28. This is the first time Sikkim has hosted a biking event of this magnitude in its history. NERM is a yearly event and is exclusive for Royal Enfield riders only.

From here, the meet was officially flagged off to Makhim, Barfung, Rabongla, in South Sikkim.
