Spend Your Honeymoon In Gangtok

Gangtok, "the land of the thunderbolt" in Tibetan, is situated in North Bengal just to the south of Sikkim with Nepal to the west and Bhutan to the east. Famous for its tea gardens all over the world, Darjeeling is also blessed with abundant scenic beauty and natural resources. The mighty Kanchenjunga is visible from almost any corner of the town.

It is a quaint hill station with unspoiled natural beauty, mist covered mountains, quaint cottages surrounded by nature, rolling plains filled with flowers and dense forests. Be it adventuring, lazing around or just plain sight seeing, Gangtok is the place to be!

Nestled cozily in the Shiwalik Range, Gangtok presents panoramic views. It is precisely because of this reason that the place is known to be a photographer’s delight. This bewitching hill town casts a spell on whosoever chooses to explore its sprawling heights and picturesque landscapes. The city displays a tinge of Buddhist culture and way of life. Revered matrons donned in dainty mustard and maroon robes roaming amidst the city present a very delightful sight. This particular Tibetan-Buddhist shade can be seen in every single fragment of Gangtok.

After the hectic rituals and wedding ceremonies, serenity and peace is what you seek for. Sikkim is one of the hotspots of Buddhist activity in the world. The tranquillity and placidity of the place will instantly instil harmony, love and joy and ease your anxieties.

The ropeway presents a bird’s eye view of the entire town of Gangtok. It starts at the main market and goes up with scheduled stops in between. Share some goose bump moments of thrill and adventure with your partner on the ropeway.
