Situated in the eastern Himalayan range, state capital Gangtok combines a modern, resort town style with ancient spiritual beliefs and an impressive natural heritage.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Climbing Tours and Shingba Rhododendron Sanctuary. Step out of Gangtok with an excursion to Deorali Butterfly Bridge in Tadong--about 32 minutes away. There's much more to do: take a stroll through MG Marg, take in the dramatic scenery at Banjhakri Water Falls, contemplate the waterfront views at Tsongmo Lake, and don't miss a visit to Hanuman Tok.
