  • Bakthang waterfalls is located near Gangtok along the 31A National Highway connecting to North Sikkim.Taxis can be hired from Gangtok to visit this place. The natural spring water cascades down the rock forming a small pool down below. One can try descending down the cliff on a prefixed rope which is organized by the local tourism committee. Tourists can wear local costumes available here to take pictures.
  • You can easily spend 1-2 hours at this place if you have nothing else to do in Gangtok. Our plan got cancelled due to land slide and we ended up spending more time at this place. We even got to see a mini rainbow formed just near the waterfall. Good experience overall.
  • Excellent waterfall particularly after rain...great view from the road..a must visit for nature lovers and photographers..a few tea stalls and souvenir shops are there...one can take photos of themselves in traditional Sikkimese dress in front of the waterfall.
  • Amazing ViewPoint, Chilling Water Falls. Very Beautiful.
  • Nice views. Fun place for visitors.
