Come to Sikkim, Discover yourself.
Wreathed in clouds, Gangtok, the capital city of Sikkim, is located on a ridge at a height of 5500 feet. With a spectacular view of the Kanchenjunga, the town provides the perfect base for travel through the state. Once an important transit point for traders travelling between Tibet and India, it is today a busy administrative and business center and presents an interesting mix of cultures and communities.
MG Marg, the main street of Gangtok town is a great place to chill out. The country’s first litter and spit free zone, no vehicular traffic is allowed into the marg. You can sit at the Titanic Park or at the various benches stretched across the mall and take in the carnival like atmosphere, especially during the tourist season. The Mall is lined with shops on both sides of the road so shopping becomes an added pleasure.
MG Marg is also the venue for the annual Gangtok Food and Culture festival held in December each year when Sikkim’s multi-cultural cuisine, along with music and dance performances is showcased. This event attracts a large number of locals and tourists each year.
