Nice walk up from Pelling town, around 1 hour each way. Loved the serenity of this place. Unlucky that it was cloudy and we couldn't enjoy the Kanchendzonga views on the way.

It's one of oldest monastery in Sikkim. It's located on top of Pelling. A steep road leads to monastery. A soul satisfying religious place. U can have panoramic view of Pelling, Gyalzing, Ravangla, Namchi from here with mountain in backdrop.
