Certificate of Excellence
Within a five-minute drive from the hustle and bustle of Gangtok town, the quiet stillness and tranquility pervades the idyllic location of The Shire, where you can sip tea in the garden ad-midst flowers blooming and with the quiet companionship of the flutter of butterfly wings. The mighty Khangchendzonga, the guardian deity of Sikkim lies resplendent in all its glory showering munificence on all who gaze at her. The tradition of Sikkimese hospitality is evident from the fact that The Shire is a home away from home. We believe in not only providing Rooms but providing large open spaces and green areas for our guests. As soon as one enters through the driveway we have a garden area behind the bamboo grove and the garden area connects to the open terrace area from which one can view the opposite valley,with beautiful sunsets,stargaze at night and above all it has a direct view of the summit of the Worlds Third highest peak in all its beauty. Indoors we have a lot of common seating areas with a indoor fireplace and a library.
