When you are in the laps of nature, away from the mundane routine of daily life, everything ceases to exist. The soothing breeze, the soft chirping of birds and the refreshing greenery takes you to another place and another time. Besides soaking yourself in absolute beauty, this enthralling city offers you a myriad things to engage yourself in. From adventure buffs to religious seekers, there is a little something for everyone.

  • Look around

    From cascading waterfalls to ancient monasteries, Pelling has a lot on its platter. Some of the oldest monasteries in Sikkim with majestic mountains in the background are a charm to discover. Pelling is also part of the Buddhist pilgrimage circuit. From the revered Pemayangtse Monastery to the surreal Khecheopalri Lake, exploring this pristine town is a rejuvenating experience in itself.

  • Mountain Thrill

    From biking across rocky trails to trekking around the majestic mountain ranges, Pelling is paradise for adventure buffs. Set up a camp and spend nights under starlit skies or pull up your socks and get ready for some mountain climbing. This little hamlet will surprise you with its outdoorsy options. Traversing along unexplored paths is an adventure itself. Throw in a little bit of surreal beauty and you are in the middle of a dream. When you are in Pelling, rent out some camping and climbing gear and set out on your very own journey. Wilderness is just a step away.

  • Wander around

    If you want this to be a relaxing retreat with nothing much to actually do, then Pelling is a dream come true for you. Snuggle in with a book along with a steaming cup of coffee, wander around the alluring forest trails, take a walk along the hillside or set out on a spectacular bird watching spree. You could also try your hand at some photography with such mesmerising beauty surrounding you.

Boredom is a thought too far away. With so much to keep you busy, you must chart out an itinerary to make the most of your trip. The town offers you what you want and as you want. Discover it at your own pace and according to your own whims and fancies, you certainly won’t be disappointed.
