"Perfect destination from city life"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Jan 27, 2016
Kaluk is a must visit place for whom who are tired of daily routine city life. This place is calm & cool. The 4 km evening walk from Kaluk to Richenpong is the most romantic walk of our life. The woods are adventures. My advice to the travellers to visit Kaluk also with Gangtok & Pelling.
