Best time to visit pelling

Pelling, Sikkim is a marvellous little hill station, offering breathtaking views of the Kanchenjunga mountain. Along with a breezy atmosphere and unexpected drizzles enough to attract the traveller, it also offers opportunity to see monasteries in the calm countryside. Also serves as the starting point for treks in the Himalayas.
Offering great views of the majestic Himalayan mountains and specifically Kanchenjunga, Pelling is essentially a laid back town of quiet monasteries. To soak in the tranquility of this atmosphere, one should visit the Pemayansgtse Monastery and the Sangachoeling Monastery. Tourists also undertake excursions to the nearby Sangay Waterfall and the Kchehepalri Lake which is hidden in dense forest cover and is sacred to Buddhists. The Rabdantsey Ruins are those of an erstwhile kingdom and worth checking out. Pelling also serves as a base camp to mountain climbers and trekkers who undertake the arduous journey into the Himalayan ranges. The town has been undergoing the process of development lately, providing good roads and better hotels to travellers.
