pelling

Pelling is the second biggest tourist destination in the state after Gangtok. Travellers would love to visit this place because it is not at all touristy like Gangtok and it offers breathtaking view of Khangchendzonga and the surrounding ranges. You must visit the Pemayangtse monastery which is a less than a kilometre from Pelling. Walk for around 40 minutes around the misty, scenic locales of this place and you will reach the historic Sanga Choling monastery built in 1697.
