Rachna Books

Top choice books in Gangtok

The city’s best-stocked bookshop, Rachna doubles as an alternative cultural hub with talks, events, screenings and an excellent cafe (Temi tea ₹50, coffee ₹90–₹150).

The cafe is almost unique in serving fragrant fresh coffee sourced from Sikkimese smallholders. Upstairs there are four fine-value B&B rooms (₹1790 to ₹2000).
