WESTERN SIKKIM SIGHTSEEING

 

Pemayangtse Monastery : It is surrounded on 2 sides by snow-capped mountains, Pemayangtse is one of the states oldest and most important monasteries. The monastery is a 3-storied structured field with walled paintings and sculptures including a seven-tired painted wooden model of paradise and hell complete with rainbows, angles and the whole panoply of Buddhas and bodhisatvas on the 3rd floor. Peyangtse is about 6 km uphill from Gezing or 2 km from Pelling. The SNT bus from Gezing to Pelling passes by the turnoff for Pemayangtse. Khechepari Lake : The standard high from Pelling is to walk to the lake in one day by taking one of the several downhill trains to the Rimbi River, crossing either a bamboo or still bridge, and then going uphill either by a steep train or via the winding motor road. The sacred lake lies in a depresion surrounded by prayer flags and forested hill. It is a good place for a pleasant walk. Yuksam : It is 34 km by road from Pemayangtse. It is the trailhead for those intending to trek to Dzongri. Gezing is a bus centre for West Sikkim. There are SNT buses daily to Silliguri, to Jorethang and to Yuksam.

Tashiding Monastery : Coming from Yuksam, the trail to Tashiding goes via Norbugang chorten, Dubdi Monastery, Phamrung waterfalls and finally to Tashiding. The climb uphill to the monastery on top of the hill between the Ranjit and Ratong rivers from Tashiding village is very interesting. From Tashiding there is a shortcut trail back to Pelling or it is about 16 km by way to Legship. TREKKING IN SIKKIM The only trekking route available in Sikkim at present is from Yuksam to Dzongri at the base of Kanchenjunga and on to Goechala. It is a beautiful trek but you can only do it with a trekking permit. There are trekking huts at all of the overnight stops (Yuksam, Bakhim, Tsokha, Dzongri and Thangsing).
