South Sikkim

Namchi, a fast developing place in South Sikkim is often known as the Culture Capital of the state. The place has been developed as a hub of religious and cultural tourism in Sikkim. In fact you can see replica of all the four dhams of India (char dhams) at Namchi and also the biggest statue of Guru Padmasambhava. Namchi also has a well laid out township with a Central Park (a small square) at the town center.

Namchi (meaning 'Sky High') is located at an altitude of 5,500ft and is the capital of South District of Sikkim. While you can come directly from NJP (90kms) or Bagdogra (96kms), many also combine a trip of Gangtok with Namchi.

While visiting from Gangtok, you will pass through the 21km stretch of famous Temi Tea Garden which is the only tea garden in Sikkim producing finest quality of tea. You will need to negotiate 21 hairpin bends while crossing the tea garden. You can halt halfway at Singchuthang which is a lovely picnic area at the bank of river Rangeet. Another picturesque place along the way from Gangtok is Manglay which has three rivers passing through it - Teesta, Sipsu and Rangpo Chhu. The scenic beauty of Manglay has been featured in the Nepali film 'Saino' and since then the place if also known as Sainotaar.

Namchi Mahotsav which is a very popular culture & food festival is held in October when the entire area bustles with people from all over the state and country. Flower shows are also held in February-March and also in October.

All except rainy season!
