For nature lovers and those looking for a short hiking experience around Gangtok, a must visit is the Fambong Lho Wildlife sanctuary. Situated around 20 km from Gangtok, the sanctuary is a green heaven which bursts into colours from April to July when the rhododendrons burst into bloom. The sanctuary is the home of Himalayan Black Bear, Red Panda, Snow leopard, Civet Cat and numerous varieties of birds. The trail through the sanctuary is well laid out and of average difficulty. It houses a small restaurant which provides sumptuous snacks to recharge oneself after the hiking experience.
