  • SangaCholing Monastery is the 2nd oldest Monastery of Sikkim, it is founded by Gyalwa Lhatsun Chempo in the year 1642.The present structure was developed in the year 1965. This is Holy Place for all Buddhist. The Monastery is situated at a high altitude, it will take at least 50-60 mins trek time(better to start early morning) from the Helipad of Pelling. Once you finished the hard work you will be prized by the nice 'n' cool atmosphere of this Great Holy Place. All are requested not to speak loudly there, if you want to enjoy the listening of what our Nature Whispering.
  • Very Beautiful place in Pelling. Need to trek for 20 mins to reach at Monastery
  • A tired full walking of around 45 minutes, but when you reach there feel like in heaven
