SIKKIM- Places of Tourist Interest - Gangtok
Gangtok (5,500 feet, in East Sikkim)
This fairytale capital of Sikkim in the clouds, balanced precariously on
steep mountain slopes, surrounded by lush rice terraces, swift flowing,
gurgling, foaming rivers and distant snow views, Gangtok reflects unique
ambience which derives from its happy blend of tradition and modernity.
Alongside the deeply felt presence of stupas and monasteries, Gangtok also
bustles like any other town. But with many of these oasis of quite, those
unexpected pockets of peace exists everywhere.
