Tashi View Point

Tashi View Point

It's located in Tashi and about 8kms from the Gangtok town. It offers a sweeping view of Kanchenjunga snow peaks on a clear day. In fact the view of sunrise from here is unforgettable, you will see the peaks dazzling with changing colors. But for that you must reach the point before 5am. In the opposite mountains, you can see the Phodong and Labrang monasteries. From the road level you need to climb steep flights of stairs to reach up to the circular viewing area. It can easily accommodate about 15-20 persons. 

There is no admission fee. However you can pay Rs. 10/- to get closer view of the peaks through a binocular and telescope mounted here. The forests in the opposite mountains look so close that I spent some good 10 minutes hunting for some wild animals through the binocular. There is a resting shed here as well as a shop offering tea, coffee, snacks as well as gift & souvenir items. Prices are reasonable.
