Average place

If you are on the way to North Sikkim or Nathula, Bakthang waterfall is a decent place to stop for a few minutes and take a few pictures. Otherwise, it's nothing to be excited about. It's located right next to a busy road in Gangtok city, surrounded by many hawkers and teeming with hagglers. It also has a pillioning setup for people to "zip" across the waterfall. The waterfall itself is pretty-looking, but nothing spectacular.

Not such a nice place

A bit too overrated, nothing worth watching around here, the falls are small and generally too overcrowded. Nothing great around but do visit if it comes on your way.

A good picnic spot

Its like a picnic spot. You can couple it with paragliding trip. Place is nice and cosy. Carry a change of clothing if you plan to enter the water. Its shallow. Carry a few sandwiches if you wish to. Plan in such a way that you take a taxi for the whole trip. Should cost you around Rs 1500/- for the day.

Small waterfall but well-maintained

I went to this place in the month of August. The road was very bad and dangerous. The fall was small but well-maintained. There were sculptures of their tradition and a dragon sculpture was placed in the middle of the pond. There were restaurants and washrooms available.
