"A place for peace"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Mar 18, 2017
Actually I stayed in a place called Borong which is 14 km from Ravongla. The wild flower retreat was there. The resort is really good, the ambience, the service and overall the people. The main attraction of Ravongla is the Buddha Park. Its a huge area with a huge Buddha statue. You can see it from my pictures. The weather was reasonably cool. Its roaming around 5-6°C. But I would suggest if anyone is visiting this place, please stay at Borong. You can visit the Ralong Monastery on the way. In this place you don't have much to see except nature.

"Amazing Mountain View - Ravangla"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 21, 2015
I stayed 2 nights at Ravangla which stands at 6800 ft in South Sikkim. From the hotel itself we saw the mountain range especially the sunrise, the first ray of the sun touch the peaks of Narsing, Jopuno, Kabur and Pandim. A life time experience. Buddha Park, Temi Tea Garden, Dumthang and Tibetan Settlement Camp are important worth visiting.

"The natural beauty-Ravangla"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Nov 25, 2015
This place in South Sikkim is located in the lap of a picturesque nature which will tempt you to stay overnight for a day or two. The greenery with forest smudged hills with the silent ambiance is definitely a thing that you would halt for right at the beginning or at the end of your trip up to Sikkim.

"I love Ravangla - South Sikkim"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted May 7, 2014
Most adventures, homely and Romantic holiday destination is Ravangla, South Sikkim. Right time to visit September- November. Trekking attraction Maenum Hill. For shopping - Sunday Local market (in a week) is very attractive. It is a small village. But there is every thing available. Buddha Park, Chardham, Golden temple of Saibaba, Samdruptse temple, Temy Tea garden, Monastery, Borong, cave will attract you a lot. Local Village sightseeing will also make you happy. Ravangla is like a picture. So Photography is a must. Momo, Pork items, Thukpa are some of the delicious foods you must try; delicious Bengali food is also available. Weather is too good - sun, cloud and flowers surround you all the time. Must carry warm cloths, shoes and umbrella. After 7:30 don't venture outside the hotel. From NJP hire a car (Rs 1500 - 2000) for 8 seaters.

"Ideal Dream Setting.."

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jan 11, 2014
Ravangla a small budding town in Sikkim one can say in its teens with loads of potential to be star tourist attraction. Ravangla is easily accessible from NJP station, Bagdogra airport or from Gangtok by car.
Ravangla is peace seekers, Natural beauty connoisseurs and photographers paradise. It can be brilliant destination for Honeymoon and bird watchers also. It has perfect views of Mt.Kanchunjungha and many other mountain peaks. Ravangla has recently come under Sikkim tourism department scanner and efforts to make it a tourist hotspot is easily appreciated, one such example is Buddha park. Other significant places to see in Ravangla are Temi tea garden,Ralang monastery,Borong hotspring and its the starting point for many trek routes as well.
The place still feels like virgin lands and the hotels and its staffs here are still not that commercialised as a result they are very warm, homely and accommodating people. Infact during my visit the place I stayed was owned by a bengali and me also being a bengali I had the luxury of having bengali delicacies there. For me the best way to explore the place is to relax and set your pace with its surroundings, people here are so relaxed and its a very common sight to see local people taking afternoon naps in its lush green meadows untethered by worldly chaos. And its not everyday that you can experience clouds passing between our fingers... it was one of the most intimate escapes I had recently...

"Just like heaven.."

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Nov 24, 2013
This is a romantic place for couples though I went there with my family.. The experience was really splendid. The Choo-zoo lake was in walking distance. Temi tea garden was awesome. And chardham at Namchi is a must see..There is a also a monastery there.. It is famous for the height of the statue of Budhha..
If someone wants to trek then Mainam is there which is around 5hrs walking distance from Ravangla. This is also special place for orchids..
Overall I have a very good experience with Ravangla..

"Peaceful place to relax"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Oct 2, 2013
Ravangla is a very peaceful place where you can spend few days in the lap of nature and relax. We stayed there for 3 days. The place has very unpredictable weather with sun and clouds playing hide and seek. We stayed at Clouds End resort which is approx 3.5 km away from the Ravangla bazaar. Few more resorts are also there. All are having very good view of the mountains and one can spend his whole day enjoying the view.
