The thambi view point is about 34 Kms Zuluk coursing through the famous silk route. Situated at an altitude of 11200 feet it is famous as you are able to view the kanchanjungha on one side and the silk route on the other side. There are some small food stalls here to make your presence more cosy. The silk route appears amazing from here and the kanchanjungha will always leave you mesmerising.

In a single word it's just a wow place. Excellent view of 95 bends of old silk route including the view of Kanchenjunga will stunned anyone. Hats off to the engineers who executed the road. Beautiful place for photography. One can enjoy hot coffee or momo or maggi during the visit.

View of Kanchendzonga and The Zigzag Road

Situated at the topmost point of the Zigzag road at an altitude of 12, 500ft above the sea level. Mt. Kanchendzonga visible on one side and the zigzag road on the other side. Zuluk is visible at the end of Zigzag road. The view point is just a walking distance from Lungthung and actually a part of old silk route. One can enjoy a spectacular bird's eye view of Mt. Kanchenjungha and the whole of Eastern Himalayas. From January to April the whole place is virtually buried in snow and the only colour you can see is white. Stay at Lungthung at night and get up early in morning to enjoy a mesmerising sunrise over Mt. Kanchenjungha range.

The mind's view

This viewpoint gives a distinct view with closeness to the clouds. You will get on with the heavenly feeling as you reach out here and get the mind boggling sunrise experience for a lifetime. The chilliness prevails throughout, although winter can give a different experience.

Experience the difference

One of the best view you can see in Sikkim. The zig-zag roads still have some history sleeping there. Enjoy the hot momos on the road sides. Must carry your camera to get some incredible pictures. Its is recommended to visit this place both in September and during winter to feel and experience the difference.

Best view point in east Sikkim for a sunrise view

The Thambi View Point is a perfect place to view the sunrise early in the morning. Wake up early and ask your driver to be ready so that you can reach there on time. The sun rise view is spectacular and breathtaking.
