HolidayIQ traveller T Roy believes that the Pemayangtse monastery, “takes you back to another era. It is cold, silent and delightfully primitive” HolidayIQ traveller Shubhanjana Das adds, "the region is replete with history, pure Buddhist culture and enthusiastic monks who are humble enough to answer your queries regarding the history of the Monastery.”

HolidayIQ traveller Arjun Paul recommends Ravangla for peace seekers, natural beauty connoisseurs, and photographers. If you are seeking relaxation then it’s the perfect place because “it’s a common sight to see local people taking afternoon naps in its lush green meadows untethered by worldly chaos. And it's not every day that you can experience clouds passing between our fingers.”
