Gangtok Revisited…

The first stop in my recent trip to Sikkim was the beautiful city of Gangtok. I have visited this city once before and have to say its easily one of the best cities I have seen in India .

As we entered Gangtok, the sun had already set and that gave us a wonderful view of the city lights.

The next day we woke up to a beautiful day and headed out for our first day of sightseeing.

Our first stop was the recently built Ranka Monastery. I love visiting Monasteries, there is always a spirutual feel that the serene places have. On a lush green backdrop the monastery was simply beautiful.

We even got play around for a few minutes with a kitten at the Monastery

The next stop was an Energy park that had a beautiful waterfall and some exquisite flowers.

We then headed to the Flower show in the city.


During the day we encountered a lot of birds, here is a collage of a few of them
