Extremely alluring, pleasantly boisterous and wreathed in clouds - Gangtok, the capital city of the Sikkim can also give you a spectacular view of Mt. Kanchenjunga, at a distant skyline. The pristine hill station nestled in mountains and clouds is also a base for a whole lot of trekkers to the Himalayan mountain ranges. The mesmerising prismatic beauty and the beautiful winding hill roads are even more breathtaking if seen from a bird’s eye view in a cable car.
The name meaning hill-top, Gangtok can be safely said to be one of the most beautiful hill stations in the country. With everything in just the right amount from a blend of cultural identities to urbanisation, Gangtok is a breathing and dynamic bit of paradise of the northeast. It has an amazing view of mount Kanchenjunga, the third highest mountain peak in the world. Also like everything around it, Gangtok is abundant in natural beauty and has various natural attractions such as the Tsomgo Lake, Ban Jhakri falls, Tashi viewpoint and more. Other places to visit include the Enchey Monastery, Ganesh Tok, Do Drul Chorten Rumtek Monastery, etc. Also, river Teesta is one of the best spots for white water rafting in North East India.

Sikkim is a Beautiful destination every one should must visit before go outside india, its divied in four part, North Sikkim South Sikkim West Sikkim East Sikkim and evert part of sikkim is just awesome.
Gangtok completely and truthfully provides one "a piece of mind". One of the special fat is Gangtok plays between silence and scenery. While visiting the Rumtek monastery, Nathula Pass, Tsomgo lake and Hanuman Tok, one meetz and experience the existing heaven on earth. The trip can either be clubbed or done individually
Best place to visit in summer vacation....I visited in April and just enjoyed.Sikkim is must visit destination for hill station lovers...North Sikkim is like heaven
Gangtok is the best city I have seen in India till now, the cleanliness and simplicity of people there is just impeccable, and you can't stop yourself falling in love with it. Hotels are also beautiful and staff they have at hotels are so professional and welcoming that they present you gifts when you check-in and checkout. Also, you can enjoy Paragliding in Gangtok it's just a few km from the city.
- Gangtok has a beautiful vibe to it. The MG road is clean, interesting and a chill place to just relax and shop. The pubs have great music and good food and drinks. Alcohol is cheap because of no state tax in Sikkim. Surrounding areas are amazing. Do visit Nathu La, Changu lake and nearby monasteries. If time permits, visit Peling and North Sikkim.
The capital of Sikkim and base for exploring other parts of Sikkim. One of the cleanest places in India. Availability of good food and music in pubs and restaurants. Good weather with spectacular views all around. Culture and heritage. Pilgrim site for Buddhists.
Slightly difficult to access as the nearest airport and railway station are around 4 hours away.
Newly-wed couples, trekking enthusiasts, people seeking a break from city life, nature lovers.
