The small hill station of Pelling draws visitors with its impressive nature and abundance of hotels and resorts.
Here are some ideas for day two: explore the activities along Khecheopalri Lake, admire the sheer force of Rimbi Water Falls, and then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Pemayangtse Monastery.

For reviews, ratings, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Pelling journey planning app.

Chennai to Pelling is an approximately 6.5- hour combination of flight and taxi. You can also do a combination of train, flight, and taxi; or drive. Prepare for little chillier weather when traveling from Chennai in March: high temperatures in Pelling hover around 35°C and lows are around 19°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Tue) early enough to go by car to Gangtok.
