What to see in & around Pemayangtse


Tashiding Monastery : A km from Pemayangtse is the holiest shrine of Sikkim at Tashiding, also known as Chogyal Lakhang. Tashiding stands on top of a thickly wooded hill and is a day’s trek from Pemayangtse. Every spring, thousand of devout Buddhist trek to Tashiding to participate in a festival and sip the sacred water from an ancient stone jar, miraculously, never runs dry.

Rabdentse : Now in ruins, it was the second capital of the erstwhile Kingdom of Sikkim after Yuksom and till the year 1814 A.D., the King of Sikkim had ruled the state from this place. The scenic view from the top of the ruins scanning across deep valley to the mystic heights of Kanchenjunga ranges is something to be cherished and etched in memory.

Khecheopalri Lake : This lake is considered as one of the sacred lakes of this state both by Buddhist and Hindus. The lake remains hidden in the rich forest cover. It is believed that birds do not permit even a single leaf to float on the lake surface.

Yuksam : This was the first capital of Sikkim, where according to the historical records, the first Chogyal of the Kingdom of Sikkim was consecrated in 1641 A.D. by three learned lamas. The evidence of the consecration ceremony is still intact at Norbugang Chorten in the form of stone seats and a foot-print of the Head Lama on a stone. Since the history of the state began from this place, this area now considered sacred by the people of Sikkim.
