Nestled within a hilly region, Ranka Monastery exudes peace and serenity. Just an hour's drive from Gangtok, the Tibetan Buddhist monastery lies mostly open to the public. Explore the quiet premises, admire the intricate and imposing buildings, and view the large gold-plated statue of Buddha in the main prayer hall. Strolling the hills and courtyards you can find panoramic viewpoints, observe training sessions, or photograph the attractive setting.

  • One of the very calmful monasteries I have visited so far . The moment you step inside , you start feeling that sense of calmness. Very beautiful place to visit and I really hope that it remains as such without much crowd .
  • One of the most serene places I've ever been to. The moment you'd step inside this holy place, something inside you will connect to the divine automatically. Amazing architecture. Simply beautiful and mesmerizing.
