A beautiful place and a getaway from Main Sikkim, this is a tranquil location mainly known for the Rumtek Monastery. This is the largest monastery of Sikkim and was built by his Holiness, Gyalwa Karmapa of the Kargyu sect of Tibetian Buddhism. The Nehru Botanical Gardens is very close to this place. The place with the silver, snow- capped mountains during winter and fields of greenery and glowing crops are what you get to see here. The main activities are trekking and river rafting apart from sight seeing here.
