Overview of the destination
Rinchenpong, Kaluk in West Sikkim is situated between 88� - 20� East longitude and 27�14� North latitude and falls at an elevation of 5576 ft. above MSL. The area surrounding Rinchenpong has got significant historical, cultural, natural and religious importance and thus has been considered as Eco-tourism thrust area in Sikkim by the State Forest, Environment & Wildlife Department

Food, sight-seeing and shopping
Though slowly becoming a tourist destination, it is still in isolation and amidst natural beauty. This place is best for nature lovers as well as for people who are looking for some peaceful experience. As it is still a remote village you will not find any restaurant but there are a few resorts which provide excellent food. You can do lot of sight seeing such as the Pemayangtse monastery, Rabdentse Ruins, Pelling, Khecheopalri Lake, Sinsore Bridge, Yuksom, Ravangla etc.

Activities & things to do
Kaluk is a heaven for nature lover, You can go for trekking across the valley or just sit quietly enjoying the magnificent view of Mt. Kanchanjanga

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc.
You can reach Kaluk from NJP via Denthan, or you can reach kaluk from gangtok, via pelling, ravangla and reshi. It is a beautiful journey for about 5 hours from NJP via Jorthan. As it is in a high altitude and you need to take the circuitous routes around mountain, you could get a headache due to the altitude. So pls do not travel on empty stomach.
