Festooned by the dreamy clouds overhead, Gangtok, the capital city of Sikkim, is placed on a ridge and it soars at a height of 5500 feet. The place offers you a spectacular view of the Khangchendzonga (a stunning peak that stands at 8586 m elevation). Gangtok is often considered to be a perfect base for people who wish to travel through the state—it was once an important transit point for travellers commuting to Tibet through the Indian land. Today, Gangtok is a crowded administrative and business centre which provides you with an interesting mix of cultures and commodities.
