Next stop on the list was the Pemayangtse Monastery, again one of the oldest and peaceful place, worth a visit. The sanctum is constructed in the traditional Buddhist architecture, this place has a great collection of Buddhist art and sculpture including the model of Guru Rinpoche. We had a great experience chatting with the monks, understanding their viewpoints and strolling around the museum upstairs.
The highlight of the day was the visit to Rabdentse Ruins, more because of the time we visited. We experienced the best sunset view here after being in Sikkim for all these days. The palace, now in ruins, is spread across the hilltop. A short climb to the top brought us to the iconic Namphogang, the ancient stones where the king sat in the olden days. A visit to these ruins will also give you panoramic views of the valley and the mighty Kanchenjunga range.
