CNBC award for Hee-Bermiok village tourism

GANGTOK, July 02:
Hee-Bermiok Tourism Development and Heritage Conservation Society (HBTDHCS), West Sikkim has been selected for the Consumer News and Business Channel (CNBC) TV award for the year 2008 under the category “Best Village Tourism and Best Community Participation.”
The award will be given away in a glittering ceremony in Mumbai tomorrow.
NK Subba, the area MLA, Hee-Bermiok has already left for Mumbai.
While talking with SIKKIM EXPRESS over the phone today, TN Sharma, the president of HBTDHCS said, “It is a happy moment for all the people of Sikkim for Hee Bermiok conservation society to be conferred with such a prestigious award.”
“We have always strived for better in terms of village tourism and had earmarked our presence globally with the annual village tourist festival,” he said.
Hee Bermiok Tourism Development Committee was formed in the year 2005 with the main motive to promote rural tourism in the State.
Since its inception, HBTDHCS organizes tourism festival every year under the Kalej Valley Heritage and Tourism Festivals Conservation Society with the help of local organizations, NGOs and various Government Departments. This is the major annual summer event and also a platform for the peoples of Hee Bermiok to showcase cultural wealth of the area.
Hee Bermiok is the newest name on Sikkim’s impressive list of tourist destinations. Bounded by Kalej Khola on the North, Hee Khola in the West, Rangit and Rangsang river in the East and Samdong reserve forest in the South, it offers the tourist, a trek or a bike-ride through the Barsey Rhododendron Sanctuary with the breathtaking Khangchendzonga looming large over the horizon.
An enchanting treat in the Limboo traditional houses and campfire in the hush green mountains with the rooster birds providing the background score are some of the unforgettable moments one gets to savour.
