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.
