Gangtok is one of the best place to spending vacations. The beautiful mountains covered with snow, the religious practices followed here and the buzzing bazars and markets consisting of handicrafts and artifacts are the most attractive element of the place. If shopping is your passion and hobby, this place hits the bulls eye as there are innumerable stuff to purchase. The handicrafts and artifacts found here are very attractive and sold in a large quantity. The sales of these items are very high. If you are looking for decorating the floors of your house, the carpets found here are very stunning. Canvas and wall hanging decorators are extremely beautiful. Dragon pattern stones are very famous here. The Sikkim tea, bamboo shoots, jackets,carpets, stone and jewellery are the must by things in the shopping list. You will freeze in the weather here as in the month of November which I went, the entire place is covered with snow and only snow.
