Pelling

Pelling is a small town located at an altitude of 2150 m is last destination in our tour of the sate of Sikkim. It is fast growing into tourist destination in the state of Sikkim. This has become a destination for all seasons, and has hotels and resorts catering to all budgets.



The main attraction of the place is breathtaking view it offers of the Khangchendzonga and surrounding ranges. We could also get a glimpse of it for a fraction of second even though it was misty in the morning.



Other attraction in and around the town are:
  • Pemayangste Monastery
  • Ruins of Rabdentse
  • Kanchenjungha Falls
  • Khecheopalri Lake

This small town has serene environment and picturesque which is ideal for mountain biking, sightseeing, traditional sports and bird-watching.



How to Reach: We reached this place from Lachung which is around 170 kms away. The drive through the wining roads in the mountains was a beautiful experience.
