Aritar
 

AritarAritar or Arhitar under Rongli sub division of East Sikkim, is a tiny village situated on the Himalayas at an altitude of 4600 ft (1400m). It is an offbeat destination for tourists who want to enjoy nature in its unspoiled form. The emerald forests, the sweeping hills with deep gorge and occasional waterfalls, the mountain slopes stewn with terrace farming and overall the panoramic view of the mighty Khangchendzonga  range cast an indelible imprint on the mind of the traveller never to be effaced         with the passage of time.

Aritar has a soothing and salubrious climate. It is worth visiting throughout the year. It provides shelter and entertainment to every one children, adults, and elders alike. Aritar in fact has a lot to offer to its visitors – sight seeing, boating, bird watching, trekking, adventure sports and a trip down memory lane for history aficionados.

 History

A brief history of Aritar will not be out of context here. The British wanted to establish trade relation with Tibet and signed the Indo-Tibet trade convention in 1904. The treaty dictated by Lord Younghusband secured monopoly trading privileges in Tibet for the British. The route chalked out started from Kalimpong, Pedong to Jelepla via Rhenock, Aritar, Zuluk and headed towards Chumbi valley in Tibet. Sir James Cloud White, the British political officer of Sikkim, took the hazardous trip to Tibet and established the first police outpost in Sikkim at Aritar. Therefore it can safely be concluded that Aritar has a chequered history. It had commercial importance more than Gangtok in the past.
