On a clear day, you can see the towering Kachenjunga, the third-tallest peak in the world, rising in the distance.

  • Within city limits, nothing much to write about. View from Hanuman Tok is best, followed by Ganesh Tok which are at a much higher altitude.Place is not very attractive. Has a view of Kachenjunga peak ...  more »
  • Highest View point around Gangtok, offers clearest and loveliest view of Kanchenjunga and peaks around it.  more »
  • Like many other view points, we get a good view of Kanchenjunga from here. We stopped here on our way to North Sikkim. I recommend others to do the same. From the road side, there are about 100 steps ...  more »

  • Excellent place to view the range of mountains. The place is within the clouds. View of the city is also very nice from the place. Enjoy the scenic beauty with the hot coffee from shop near the view point. One can also eat the breakfast from the shops at the bottom of the steps. Very nice place for photographers. Come in the early morning to enjoy the beautiful Sikkim with the range of mountains.
  • It's a serene location to see the mountains surrounding Gangtok. The Kunchenjunga summit is also visible if there is no fog or clouds. The problem is that during the tourist season, the place will definitely be over-crowded which will hinder your outstandingly tranquil experience.
  • Nice place to view the great kanchenjunga . However hanuman top is a better view point and a worthy stop for the same 😃
  • View point with mountain views and distant city views. Nearer to the clouds. A gud place to relax for 30 or odd mins. Enjoy the beauty with coffee.
  • Great view for range of mountains. Golgappa nd chana chats r awesome.
