  • Should try once to walk 30 minutes, around 800 meters through the woods. It will bring happiness once you reach the hill top. Though, there is nothing much to see at the destination. Even, the Sculpture House is locked all the times there.
  • A pretty long walk (trek) will lead you to this wonderful place. Great views and interesting history. Like most other spots in sikkim, it is very well maintained.
  • Great place to trek lightly and see the beautiful Kanchenjunga mountain range. Very silent place and you can have a great walk along the trek.
  • Will have to walk a long distance to reach the ruins. Ok ok type place.
  • Ancient Capital of sikkim , with lot of nature treasure . old palace and mandir, awesome experience
