The small market town of Pakyong sits high on a ridge 18km south of Ranipul via a pretty, winding lane. It's home to India's Orchid Research Centre but mostly of note to travellers due to the ongoing construction here of Sikkim's remarkable if controversial new airport, slated to open in 2017 or 2018.
