    Must visit in your Gangtok trip.The most happening place - a lot of restaurants to try out, not much option for shopping though. There are some gift shops from when you can buy souvenirs. Lot of bakeries and ice cream parlors. If not interested in shopping, just stroll around the road.

    There are 2 Temples that have been constructed by the Indian Armed Forces.

    One is known as the Old Baba Mandir and the other is know is known as the New Baba Mandir.

    Taxi charges about additional 1500/- for a tour of old baba mandir as it away from the Natu La - Baba Mandir (New) and Tsomgo Lake circuit.

    We went to New Baba Mandir.

    The temple/samadhi was constructed in the memory of the Baba Harbhajan Singh ji.

    Baba Harabhajan Singh Ji attained martyrdom and his mortal remains could not be found.

    However, after attaining martyrdom Baba Harbhajan Singh Ji communicated about thr location of the mortal remain to one of his colleagues in the latter’a dream. And further requested for a Samadhi.

    The mortal remains of Baba Harbhajan Singh were found there and the security forces constructed a Samadhi/memorial.

    It is a tourist friendly place. Very well maintained by the Black Cat Division of the Indian Security forces.

    There is a memorial, souvenir shop and temple and canteen.

    Best memory of my Sikkim trip.

    It is truly amazing to see how the Indian Armed Forces honours our Martyrs.

    Good zoo in a natural setup. Involves a lot of walking and climbing. Watch out for red pandas on trees.

    It's quite far from Gasngtok. Takes almost an houyr to reach. It's beautiful. It's a large Monastery. Extremely well decorated. Photographer's delight.

    We went to Tashi View Point. though this is at the hieght; we were not in Luck due to Clouds and we could not see the Valley and Mountains.
    The climb is steep and people with Knee pains should avoid. There is a restaurant at the Top . I did not have anything there

    We were slightly disappointed at the duration of the ropeway. Its hardly 5 mins ride from one point to another. 20 people are allowed inside the cabin at a time, so you better secure a good spot if you want to click good pictures.

    Must visit in Gangtok, we were amazed at the wide variety of flowers and orchids present. We took a lot of pics inside the hall. You can also purchase flower bulbs from here.

    This is a Ganesh Temple as the name suggests...
    This is not as spaced out as Hanuman Tok...
    The temple remains crowded as more people visit this temple for puja...
    More than the temple it is famous as a view point as u can see the Kanchanjunga range very clearly...

    This is a beautiful waterfall but you'll find almost 200+ waterfalls in entire sikkim so there's no unique charm to it.. each waterfall is beautiful & full of water.. stay only if you find it less crowded

    Nice place to know the various stages of life of Buddha. Has a museum and a monestary. Entrance has quite a slope to climb.
