Bariakhop or Buriakhop is a small scenic village in West
District of Indian state of Sikkim. It is located at 5530 ft. above sea level
and about 64 KM towards south from district head quarters Geyzing. Visit this
place to relive the days when playing meant skipping ropes and cricket bats
instead of video games and mobile phone. Stay here for at least couple of days to
take in the local flavor, shop at the local market that is set up every
Wednesday, take long walks and leave your watch and phones at home. There are
no hotels but some people have given their houses on rent as homestay.
is not a destination for people looking to sightsee or stay in a good resort
and lounge. Lose yourself in the magic of the place and you will soon discover
a new you that had been hidden under the cobwebs of city life.
