Gangtok, The Paradise on Hill top
Climate: Nestled amongst the beautiful Himalayan Mountains, no doubt Gangtok experiences cold weather round the year. The summers are pleasant with abundant sunshine and pretty flowers blooming all around with massive waterfalls leaping down every nook and corner. Although winters are very harsh in this city, the monsoons are continuous, even during the peak winter seasons. So the best climate to enjoy the beauty is either March to May or October and November.
Abundant in natural beauty, Gangtok seems to have all the shades in green peeping through every leaf and forest. The tea gardens and the snow capped mountains add to the beauty. Gangtok is famous for its exotic and colorful flowers particularly Rhododendron, Orchids and Blue Poppies. Gangtok has a very spectacular setting and offers excellent views of the entire Kanchandzonga range from various points in its vicinity. The third largest mountain of the world, the Kanchandzonga, is considered as the guarding deity by the people of Sikkim and Gangtok. They worship and offer prayers to their deity who not only guards their borders but also provides the life like water apart from the picturesque scenario.
The Capital of Sikkim emerges through the clouds in the shadow of the mighty Kanchandzonga and offers a lot to see and enjoy for a travel enthusiast. It was ruled by the Chongyals till the 1975, until it merged with the Indian sub-continent as the 22nd state of India. The footmarks of the regality are still evident in the capital where they reside and normal public does not have access to it.
Lamas with their play wheels, colorful festivals, Tsechu dance, the Monasteries, the flowers and the natural beauty; all draw visitors to this place. But the view of the majestic Kanchandzonga takes the cake and memories of which calls you back and again to visit the small town.
