A calm peaceful place. There is a glass Skywalk leading upto this Monastery, which is an unique experience in itself. There are many steps leading to the entrance of the Monastery. It may seem daunting at first to climb up so many steps, but the task is actually not as difficult as it seems. There is also a ramp way, and wheelchairs are available inside the Monastery.

Inside the Monastery, too, there is a ramp way spiraling the entire structure. One can climb up to the roof, all the while enjoying beautiful paintings made on the walls of the Monastery.

Do remember to honour the rules and not click photographs inside the Monastery.

Just a few steps from the skywalk, do not forget to visit this fantastic place. There is construction going on between the skywalk and this place. But one could walk easily, and have amazing clicks of mountains and monasteries.

This monastery is near Pelling Skywalk. It is one of the oldest and beautifully located Monastery in Sikkim. It is worth spending your time here as it gives you the best view of the valley.

It is neatly maintained, but looks like any other Monastery in Sikkim. The sight seeing spots are far away and so better to stay for a 2 nights and one day for a leisure trip.

This monastery was my favorite part of Pelling. The monastery is hiding in plain sight near the Pelling Sky walk. We just happen to chance upon it and it was the best part of our day at Pelling. The monastery is very very peaceful and offers a mind blowing view of the valley from a point. Since it is not so prominent, while there were 100s of tourists at the Skywalk, we dint find one single soul here.. Just loved the solemn peaceful experience

This is the oldest Monastery in the sikkim. They renovated it along a new monastery along with beautiful glass skywalk. Entry Fees is 50/- per head including kids more than 5 years. The way to the place need good cab with high engine capacity. Avoid Alto or Indica cab.

We had goosebumps as we came to know that this is the oldest monastry of Sikkim and plays a very important role in Tibetan Buddhism.

Recently a sky-walk bridge is made in the compound of 'Sangacholing monastery'. Since the skywalk is not yet separately listed under Pelling sightseeing attractions, I am reviewing that place over here. My visit was only restricted to the skywalk and I did not climb up the Sangacholing Monastery. The monastery looks beautiful but alas the same cannot be said about the skywalk.

With the skywalk being made, you need to purchase entry tickets worth Rs 50/person to visit this monastery as well. While glass-bottom bridges are a huge attraction in places like Zhangjiajie, China and the Grand Canyon, this cannot be even remotely compared to them. Those bridges are build over deep valleys and give a terrific view through its glass bottom. However this bridge is just build at some height from the ground and there is absolutely no great view of the bottom. All you get to see is some bushes and rubble. Also there are too many support structures in the bottom thereby obstructing a seamless glass bottom view. Thereby this bridge just comes like a cheap gimmick to lure in unassuming tourists into believing they are walking in the sky while they are actually just walking on any ordinary bridge.

Could have been made much better!
