Introducing Ravangla (Rabongla)
Lined by conifer forests and spectacularly perched on a ridge overlooking a wide sweep of western Sikkim, Ravangla promises come of the best mountain views in the region. The gompas of Ralang, Tashiding, Pemayangtse and Sangachoeling are all distantly visible against a horizon that’s sawtoothed with snow-capped peaks.
A cheerful but characterless town, Ravangla is useful as a hub to visit surrounding sights. Joining the main highway is Main Bazaar, a concentration of shops, cheap hotels, the jeep stand and the Cyber Cafe.
