  • A beautiful Hanuman temple which is well maintained by army. It situated at some height above MG road catering a splendid scenic beauty. Roads are covered with greenery on both sides with a pretty valley view. Temple is clean and very well maintained. A must visit spot if you are travelling to gangtok.
  • Very nice and spiritual place, situated at a good height. Nice and awesome views. A little costly market. Nice place to visit for not more than 1 hour.
  • Hanuman Tok- A Temple Lord Hanuman situated at an altitude of 7200 feet from sea level is a beautiful place to visit in Gangtok, Sikkim. It is 2 km away from the first check point on the way to Nathula Pass. It is maintained by indian army even the priest was an army soldier. Surrounded with lush green forests the road experience to temple gives an amazing view and pleasure feeling. It is a must go place.
  • Peaceful place well maintained by keepers of peace - The Indian Army. Our Indian Army respects the sentiments of the people have let in side defence land to worship a historical site. Not only that it is very well maintained by them. Apart from this it is a superb location to see Mt Kanchenjunga. This site also gets its importance from the great Indian epic of Ramayana. In which when Lord Hanuman was going towards in search of sanjeevani in the himalayas he took rest in this very place
  • Hanuman Tok is located on a hill near the Gangtok city, near the 3rd mile check-post, just off the road to Nathula. It's maintained by the Indian army (the pujaris are soldiers :-) and everything is clean and well-maintained. There are multiple temples here of Hanuman, Ram, Shiva, etc. Although the temples themselves are plain, the setting of this place and the views of the surrounding hills & the city are awesome. And without the crowds, it feels very peaceful here.
