Gangtok is capital of Sikkhim – top of Himalayan mountain range.

If you are ready for a journey to the top of the world? Look no further than Gangtok.

This little city, sitting at an elevation of 5,410 ft, is a melting pot of different ethnicities such as Bhutia, Lepchas and Indian Gorkhas, and the perfect destination for those who love the mountains and mild weather all year round.

But Gangtok’s not just about the stunning views, it’s also steeped in history. Did you know that it used to be a popular Buddhist pilgrimage site in the 1840s? And that it was even an important stopover for trade between Tibet and British India in the early 20th century?

And let’s not forget about the monarchy. Gangtok was the capital of an independent Sikkim before it merged with India in 1975. But don’t worry, the royal treatment still continues as Gangtok remains the state capital.

Some of the best attractions around are Nathula Pass, Ranka Monastery, Himalayan Zoo, Black Cat Museum, View Points, Gangtok Ropeways etc.,

So pack your bags and get ready for an unforgettable journey to Gangtok, where you can experience the beauty of the Himalayas, learn about its rich history and maybe, just maybe, you’ll be treated like royalty.
