Situated in the eastern Himalayan range, state capital Gangtok combines a modern, resort town style with ancient spiritual beliefs and an impressive natural heritage.
MG Marg and Ranka Monastery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Escape the urban bustle at Kyongnosla Alpine Sanctuary and Climbing Tours. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Gangtok: Darjeeling (Bindu Dam & Batasia Loop). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the waterfront views at Tsongmo Lake, make a trip to Hanuman Tok, steep yourself in history at Nathula Pass, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Himalayan Zoological Park.

Plan my Gangtok trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
