I found these flowers by the side of a nature trail at Rabangla in Sikkim. I do not know whether these are orchids (it was not the season for orchids) but they looked beautiful.
Wish all Trekearth members a happy and peaceful Christmas.

Hello Satya, This photo appeared as random on your intro page. And I am crazy about flowers, I couldn't be indifferent. It is not orchid, it is fuchsia. These flowers are very popular in England, with a lot of varietes. In poland they can be as pot flowers or just for summer. charming composition.
There are currently almost 110 recognized species of Fuchsia. The vast majority are native to South America, but with a few occurring north through Central America to Mexico, and also several from New Zealand to Tahiti. One species, F. magellanica, extends as far as the southern tip of South America, occurring on Tierra del Fuego in the cool temperate zone, but the majority are tropical or subtropical. Most fuchsias are shrubs from 0.2–4 m tall.
The flowers are very decorative; they have a pendulous "teardrop" shape and are displayed in profusion throughout the summer and autumn, and all year in tropical species.
