Perched on the rugged terrain of the lower Himalayas in East Sikkim Zuluk is a hamlet close to The Indo China border, located at an altitude of 3000 meters(10000 ft). It is a relatively new and offbeat tourist destination in East Sikkim.

Zuluk derived its importance from its location on the historic Old Silk Route. The route started from Kalimpong and passed through Pedong, Aritar, Zuluk and Jelepla to Chumbi valley in Tibet. After the Chinese aggression however Nathula is the official corridor between India and China.

There are about 60 families consisting of about 600 people living in Zuluk. They are largely immigrants from Nepal who came and settled here in the hope of a better future. They are honest, simple, hardworking and hospitable by nature. However most of them are illiterate.

Zuluk has an extreme climate. Winter is very severe with snowfalls and freezing temperature while summer is wet and foggy. Due to poor quality of the soil and vagaries of weather, farming is well neigh impossible. Neither there is any scope for practicing cattle rearing as an occupation. Most of the land is fenced and military controlled making it unfit for grazing.
 
The only source of livelihood there is employment in the construction and maintenance of border roads. People live in penury misery. However, there are immense tourism potentialities which need to be tapped properly.

Zuluk is an abode of peace. It is an ideal destination for those who like serene ambience, far from the ‘madding crowds ignoble strife’. For a person who is long put up in a city and is tired of his humdrum existence, it is a welcome relief.
 
Zuluk has a primitive appeal. There are no hotels worth its name. a visitor has to accept home stay and put up in small cottages which have however attached bathrooms.
 
Bedrooms are made comfortable and warm at night by room heater or fire place which locals call Bukhari.
