Best Sightseeing Tours in Gangtok

Located in the foothills of Himalayas, Sikkim is surrounded by forests and slow-clad mountains peaks with clouds playing hide and seek within rhododendron bushes and silver fir trees. As it is located close to Tibet, Sikkim is deeply influenced by Buddhist and has beautiful monasteries alongside ancient Hindu temples and objects of natural beauty like lakes and waterfalls. To experience Sikkim in its pristine glory take the North Sikkim Tour, starting from a sightseeing tour in Gangtok to Tsomgo Lake and Nathula Pass and end it up at Lachen that is close to the famous seven sisters’ waterfall.

 

After a night of rest proceed to the sacred Gurudongmar Lake or Lachung as both will take you across snow-clad mountains. Yumthang Valley is another interesting place that is just 21 kms from Lachung that you can visit and explore the hot springs on the way. If you are the religious kind then there are several monasteries and Buddhist temples to explore in this beautiful land like the Rumtek Monastery, Tashiding Monastery, Sherdup Choeling Monastery and Rumtek Monastery. For tourists short of time, a quick cable ride in Gangtok will allow them to have a bird’s eye view of the region after which they can take a river rafting tour of the famous Teesta River to view the beautiful scenery and birds along the river.

 

To understand the true essence of Sikkim one needs to take time out and explore this beautiful state’s landscape and sample its cuisine. The best way to do that would be to start with a sightseeing tour in Gangtok and move on from there to Tsomgo Lake, Dubdi Gompa, Tashi Tenka, Norbugang Park and then Khangchendzonga National Park. For strategic views of cliffs and mountains a visit to Zuluk is a must that gives breathtakingly beautiful views of surroundings valleys and hills.

For me, this was a treasure trove journey. Though Sandakpu is the main attraction, I also enjoyed the panorama of the other peaks and the evergreen valleys. Terrains might get difficult at times and to overcome them, you have to be quite careful and attentive towards the guides and instructors. Do not miss the sunrise view over the Kanchenjunga Peak at any cost.
