Being close to nature!

Travellers must visit Gangtok as it is the capital city of such a lovely state to visit and you can admire the beauty of the nature from cable car, do paragliding. Kanchenjunga world's third tallest peak is visible from Gangtok. It looks snow white in winter. We see Nepalese and Tibetan people there. Although it's difficult to understand their language but still we made friends with them. Very kind and friendly people, they use to serve us Tea which was bit salty. It has natural scenic beauties like mountains, valley, hillside in steep tiers. One feels as if one has reached a different world, quiet and calm away from noise and traffic that we usually see in our cities. An excellent place for vacation and it's a safe city no law and order problem. Hotels and restaurants are not too expensive, easily affordable.

Must visit places in Gangtok should include: Nathula Pass, Tsomogo lake, Hanuman Tok, Himalayan zoological park, Bhanjakri waterfalls, monasteries and cholamu lake. Food in gangtok is easily available and you will get the kind of food you want. Please don't forget to try momos, there. Shopping, can be done from road side bazaars, which sell the hand made products from local people which is cheap and good. Activities that kept me busy were trekking and strolling in the lap of nature. My advice to travellers would be to take with you your woolen clothes as it gets too cold here, whenever it rains. And, be ready for an experience so close to nature that it will leave you wanting for more!
