Also, with numerous Pelling tour packages available these days, you can customize your own trip keeping everything in mind like number of days to stay and the budget window.

Day 1

By the time you reach this vibrant town, you’ll be tired from the hill journey. Head to your hotel and rest those tired muscles for a while. After your little rest, depending on the time you reach, you could head for either lunch or dinner to the main market. The inviting Melting Point restaurant is a pleasure to dine at. For more information, visit our 'Popular restaurants in Pelling' page. If you reached the town by late afternoon, it is suggested to explore the market area and not venture out for sightseeing. The sightseeing spots being at a little distance from the main town, it may be quite tiring.

If you have reached Pelling in the morning, exploring may still be a good option for you. You could head to the Sangachoeling Monastery and marvel at simple Tibetan architecture as you get intriguing insights about the monastery. You could also head to the Pemayangtse Monastery which is a few kms from the main town. One of the oldest monasteries in Sikkim, this beautiful monastery houses myriad age old artifacts and traditional Buddhist carvings.

After this short sightseeing trip, you can head back to your hotel for a warm and scrumptious dinner. An eventful day awaits you with the bright rays of the morning sun.

Day 2

With a scrumptious feast in the morning, you are all set for the day. Fresh after a comfortable sleep, you could head out to the Pemayangtse Monastery, if you didn’t cover it on the first day. Incase you managed to visit this splendour, you could head to the Rabdentse Ruins, a few kms away from the monastery. Taking you back into a bygone era, these ruins are symbolic of a city that was. A journey back into history works wonders as part of an alluring sightseeing spree.

With lunch at one of the many restaurants in the market, you can then head to the Singshore Bridge, a mere 5 km from Pelling. The architectural brilliance of the bridge will leave you spellbound. Touted as one of the highest bridges in Sikkim and the second highest gorge bridge in Asia, the Singshore bridge is a must visit.

After an evening well spent, you could head to the lovely Changey Falls. 10 km from Pelling, the falls are a wonderful sight. Falling downwards and disappearing into the abundant greenery, the falls will bedazzle you. An evening spent in the laps of nature will work wonders for you.

A day well spent, wasn’t it? After a sizzling dinner at one of the restaurants or your hotel will certainly help with those depleting energies.

Day 3

With your journey coming to an end, you could spend the last day simply strolling about this small town. Shopaholics could indulge and splurge in some tibetan delights. From traditional shawls, blankets to cloth bags and hand woven carpets, you could take back huge shopping bags. Visit our Shopping at Pelling page to know more.

Finish off with lunch at one of the traditional restaurants. A plateful of momos, slurpy thukpa and the authentic fermented wine will keep you happy for the rest of your journey back home.
