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!

It is a small and calm and nice place. Please don't miss to climb up the stairs to the 2 other floors to see some of the ancient stuffs which are well preserved. It has an entrance fee of 20 per head

Nestled beside the very newly made budhha point in Pelling, this monastery is gem in itself. Not only the old architecture or the frescos are interesting, the Stupa and other buildings come alive in the rays of afternoon sun,the backdrop of snow peaked mountains and fluttering prayer flags. Highly recommended to visit the place after 3pm for excellent photography

It was a five minutes drive for us from our hotel ..but trekking to this place is also a good option which we did not opt for it as we were traveling with little children. The is ample parking spacwhich is a huge plus point.
Recently (November-2018) a statue of Chenrezig (137feet) and a skywalk has been inaugurated here. Some minor constructions works are still ongoing.The place is just awesome.The skywalk, the statue just beautiful.It was cloudy when we were there so we couldn’t get a good view of the Kanchenjunga range but still it looked scenic.The view below the skywalk is not that great , just the ground for now but they are working on making beautiful gardens .
The monastery is calm and peaceful .The sound of prayers transports you to another world.The view from here is also breathtaking
One well maintain Np and serene place , a must visit when in Pelling.
