  • It is located in Pelling part of West Sikkim. It is decent walk from the Bird sanctuary but worth a visit as you see the ruins of the past King of Sikkim. Beautiful view of the Kanchenjunga range...

  • This is a Historical Place to visit, this place is inside the Bird Park. You can enjoy trekking if you like, the way length is about 800-900 meters inclined. To motivate you to climb to this place, they have put a board sign in the way. Once you reach the actual place you forget the climb and you can enjoy the view from there. People of Sikkim Worship this place. The view is so beautiful from there. They have maintained the place quite well.
  • Needs a lot of walking on a jungle type of track to reach the place- approx. 1.5 km of upward tracking. No sitting benches/ washrooms in between the entire track. People with difficulty in walking are advised to avoid the place. The place has bird park also which is under maintenance as on 11 Nov 2021 & not open for public. Washrooms near to the ruins are dirty and to be avoided if possible.
