At the foothills of Mount Kanchenjunga, Pelling has mesmerizing mountain views and a lot more. Inarguably one of the most popular tourist destinations in Sikkim, Pelling is just the place to go with your family this winter. This tourist hub spot has grown dramatically over the years, and has a number of attractions for the entire family.

If you are an adventure seeker you are bound to love every day spent at this snowclad city that sits at an altitude of 6,800 feet. It is ideal for trekking and various mountain sports apart from being a treasure trove of stunning sights. Pelling is a really small town and can be explored on foot. Be sure to carry your camera along to capture all the magical moments at this quaint little Sikkim town.

Pelling is located at an altitude of 2070 meters. On a clear day guest can get a nice view of the Himalayan snow capped range Pandim, Khangchendzonga, Kumbhakarna, Rathong, Narsing, Zopuno, Shimbho, Sinolchu. It is one of the exotic destinations with historical sites, short trekking routes and wildlife.

Its botanical and zoological wealth is inspiring and the panoramic view is something to be seen to be believed. Kaluk, Rinchenpong and Namchi are some of the tourists place nearby. In Kaluk there are some night resorts and from there you can walk the distance (3 km) to Rinchenpong to see the monastery and get trapped by the tranquility of this area.

Other places of visit are Rimbi waterfalls, Rimbi Rock Garden. Lake Kechopalri, is one of the Buddhist holy lakes. Myth is that when a leaf falls on the water surface, it is picked up by a bird and thus the surface of the water is always leafless. Near Khecheopalri monastery is the Kanchenjunga Falls, ruins of Pemayangtse monastery, and Rabdentse monastery or the Sanga Choeling and the Rathong valley with all its mountains in the background.

The panoramic view from the top of the ruin to the mystical heights of Kanchendzonga ranges is something to be caressed. Wander around the helipad or shopping center.
