Pelling is a small hill town in the district of West Sikkim, India.

It’s a short 10km from the district headquarters of Geyzing and only 131km from Gangtok.

At 6800ft, it is a place where you can take a hike through thick forest, once home to many wild animals, and spot the elusive Yeti (or not). But don’t worry, the only thing wild about Pelling now are the adventures you can have!

From mountain biking, rock climbing, and village tours to meditations and treks, Pelling has something for everyone.

And let’s not forget the famous Pemayangste Monastery, a mere hop, skip, and a jump away from Pelling. This major tourist hotspot is a must-see for all history buffs and culture enthusiasts.

But Pelling isn’t just about the great outdoors and ancient monasteries, it’s also a town undergoing a metamorphosis. With roads being repaired and hotels popping up, Pelling is becoming a destination for all seasons and budgets.

And did we mention the Khangchendzonga Festival held annually in honor of the guardian deity of Sikkim? Trust us, you don’t want to miss it!

Getting there is easy. Pelling is just a bus ride away from the district headquarters of Geyzing and a short jaunt from Gangtok. And for those flying in, the nearest airport is Bagdogra. And don’t worry about the language barrier, most people in Pelling speak Sikkimese, Nepali, Hindi, and English. So what are you waiting for? Pack your bags and head to Pelling for the adventure of a lifetime!
