  • Tashi View Point is famous for the most spectacular views of Mt Kanchenjunga in Gangtok. Although we could not see Kanchenjunga because of clouds, the views from this point are anyway beautiful. You get to see both sides of Gangtok from atop this hill - the city side and towards Penlong village (and further) - and both sides are very scenic. The place itself is clean and well-maintained with clean toilets, a small shop and a restaurant. Most of the people visit this site as part of their drive to North Sikkim or local sightseeing.
  • Nice view point near the city. You get a beautiful view of my kanchenjunga and some small shanks and few restaurants providing food and beverage. I recommend you to visit during clear weather conditions or during sunrise or sunset times. It's especially beautiful when the mountains are snowclad during winters.
  • It is just an elevated view point providing a holistic view of surroundings with lush green hills and clouds floating. Photography in traditional dresses and some eating joints are prominent here. Though the similar view can be easily enjoyed in the journey. Its just a waste of time to visit it. Extra parking charges of Rs. 30 are also being deducted.
  • It was a great place to enjoy one can have a good view of Gangtok street food available there was of good quality we enjoyed a lot one can spend about one or two hours easily
  • Long flight of stairs, amazing view from the top, the reasonably-priced souvenirs shop, fruit vendors selling chopped pineapples, mangoes, etc. With all this and a free space for kids to run around, the place is very welcoming!
