Rumtek is an aesthetic village which is located on the opposite valley of Gangtok. The place is entirely dominated by the gompa complex which appears wonderful in the lush green hills surrounding the village. The monastery here is the home in exile of Buddhism’s Kagyu sect.
A number of tourists prefer to visit the place as they enjoy the serenity and the calmness of place. Therefore even though there are not many things to do here, still the place gets crowded at times. The best time is to see the valley in the evening and at nights when it captures everyone’s heart.
