The Temi Tea Garden set up in 1969 by the Government of Sikkim spreads over an area of 440 acres. The greenery enclosure lies in the middle of Damthang and Temi Bazaar along the road to Singtam.The tea delivered here is appreciated worldwide, commanding high prices in world auctions. The government possessed Tea estate today creates around 1 lakh kg of tea every year. Temi tea is planted along steep slopes running from 1200-1800m. The production line is arranged at 1500m and the street upto it, is lined with cherry bloom trees. Driving in November when these trees are in blossom is similar to traveling through a pink fog past, which one can see the sparkling snows of Khangchendzonga.The drive upto Temi takes you through mountain sides rich with greeneries. As of late the Institute of Marketology (IMO) of Switzerland has certified this tea garden as organic and thus the quality and interest of this guaranteed item has increased rapidly.

Khecheoplari Tsho is a huge lake found 27 kms from Pelling and is a very common visitor touring point. The lake is thought to be one of the sacred pools of Sikkim. The lake stays covered up in the rich forest spread. It is said that birds don't allow even a solitary leaf to glide on the Khecheoplari lake surface. There is a motorable street from Pelling straight up to the lake area. The spot is well known among trekkers. There is also a mobile trail from Pelling to Khecheoplari (5 hours). It is also possible to trek to Yuksom from Khecheoplari which takes 4 hours. For those keen on spending a night or two in this spot, there are a couple of basic inns in the town close-by. There is also a traveler's hut intended to give housing to the general population who go on pilgrimage trips to visit Khecheoplari. The tour begins at Pelling and proceeds through Darap Village and Rimbi falls before coming to Khecheoplari.
