Temple with mt. Kanchanjunga view

At that start of what was to be a very long day driving from Gangtok to Lachung, our driver decided to stop at this view point when we were barely even out of Gangtok. It's a nice enough place - a lot of steps to climb for a view that's not that different from many other spots. Small tea shop and souvenir stalls but little else to keey you there once you've grabbed a few photos.

Ganesh Temple

Ganesh Temple with a good view of the hills. Small traders outside sell the local handicrafts and rent costumes.The place is ok because it is a Mandir of Lord Ganesha. Apart from this nothing is there. You can see the city from the top and thats enough.The place offers a good viewpoint for the city of Gangtok

Ancient temple with attractive shopping options

It is worth visiting the place. A small shopping zone adjacent to the temple adds value for a traveler. Photographers are also available with local dresses and one may get his pictures in local attire. Mountain and valley view is also attractive from the temple area.

Unmatched architecture and natural beauty

Sight seeking was exiting. The architecture the natural beauty was unmatched. Neatness the discipline was the thing to watch and appreciate. Though the city is bit costly yet afordable. transportation in normal condition is good .The best time to visit is winter.

Ganesh Tok - Top most hill in Gangtok

After visiting gangtok i couldn't forget even a single miniut that i spent there.Talking about Ganesh Tok it is the one of the highest hill in the Sikkim we can almost see Kanchan Janga mountain from there.While climbing that there are some chains who will dress up us like them and they charge only Rs50 for each we need to return them back while going back.
