Average place with some very good scenic beauty

Monpong is a place to spend serene and tranquil weekend having a view of the surroundings from your balcony . Do not plan to go on a sightseeing spree. Instead just sit on the rocking chair and enjoy the pristine scenic beauty. However you can go the teesta river, the Mahananda sanctuary, etc . Local foods like momo and thukpa are very delicious . We didn't go to watch a lot of sights. Instead we stayed at the cottage and enjoyed the visual treat . Do not forget to bring warm clothes and umbrella as the temperature sometimes drop very low.
