Visit to get the feel of being home

Namchi, is the capital of South Sikkim. The average elevation of Namchi is 4,314 ft. I would recommend for a 2-night stay in Namchi. It is a very small and beautiful town. Namchi has become a very popular tourist place nowadays. Central Park, rightly named in Namchi is the central location where the main town surrounds. You will find the place to be well decorated and planned with shops and food courts. You can spend some quality leisure time with your family just sitting for hours in the Central Park.

Namchi, is located in such an elevation that you will enjoy the weather. My trip to Namchi was in the month of November. It was cold there and you need to wear heavy woollen garments. Namchi offers an unmatched view of the Mt Khanchenjunga range (from certain locations provided you get the clear sky) and the Rangit valley. You can see sparkling Darjeeling Town also from Namchi in the night.

Char Dham is the main attraction for tourists in Namchi. It is located on a hill top and is about 5 km distance from Namchi Town. This Pilgrim Centre has a most important temple of 108 feet height on which is established the 87 feet high statue of Lord Shiva. Apart from this there are also replicas of the twelve Jyotirlingas, to offer one platform to worship for the devotees of Lord Shiva. A statue of 16 feet height of Lord Kirateshwar is also installed in this place. As per the Hindu belief in order to attain eternity, one has to perform pilgrimage to all the existing four Dhams, hence, replicas of these four Dhams has been built in the same premises.

Other major attractions include, Temi Tea Garden, Namchi Monastery and the statue of Guru Rinpoche. Temi tea Garden is the sole tea garden in the state of Sikkim and it produces top quality teas for the international market. The tea garden originates from Tendong Hill. A visit to the tea factory helps learn more about the tea processing. Statue of Guru Rinpoche, the patron saint of Sikkim. The statue in Namchi is the tallest statue of the saint.

During my visit to Namchi, I stayed in Seven Seas Resort. During evening time you can spend some leisure time with your family just sitting on the benches of the resort for view of glittering Darjeeling Town. Visit to Namchi is very much suggested with family during Winter.

Calm and Beautiful Place!

Namchi is one of the best locations I have ever visited during my life. The scenic beauty on the way to Namchi is a memorable one. The Temi Tea garden is worth a visit. The pure atmosphere and the tea made up of fresh leaves is hard to forget. I, along with my family, visited Namchi during May 2013 and still with my closed eyes, I can feel the freshness of natural beauty. The main attraction of Namchi is Chardham. A religious corner made for the tourist is must visit place. The miniatures of Famous Indian temple are there and one main temple of Lord Shiva is worth visiting. The cleanliness around the area is appreciable. Situated at a hill, you can also enjoy the natural beauty around. There is vegetarian restaurant where you can have veg thali and other items. April and May is the best season when the cold is very moderate and weather is clear. If possible the area should be visited during night.
