Welcome to Pelling


Helpful agencies make excursions easy to organise. Within 3km of Pelling along the same ridge-top are two historic monasteries: busy Pemayangtse Gompa and peaceful Sanghak Choeling, plus the ruins of the 18th-century royal palace of Rabdentse. Directly below the latter is Tikjuk, West Sikkim's administrative complex (for permit extensions), from where it's another 3km to the commercial and transport centre at Geyzing (Gyalshing).
