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
The next step in the journey was the visit to North Sikkim. More on that in the next part :)
