Rumtek Overview: Hotels in Rumtek
Rumtek is a small town tucked in the natural beauty of Sikkim. Breathe the fresh air, smell the sweet flowers, gaze at the clear sky and while you do so, don’t forget to have your share of a steaming bowl of thukpa and momo! The culturally inclined must visit the 300 year old Rumtek Monastery built in the 16th century by the fourth Chogyal, which houses some of the world’s most unique art pieces, ancient manuscripts and icons. Another must-see is the Rumtek Dharma Chakra Centre – the largest monastery in Sikkim and the stage for the sacred rituals and practices of the Karma Kagyu lineage. Travel with an open mind and discover life from a different dimension – where people and nature merge with each other. Indulge in adventurous activity from water rafting and trekking to canoeing and kayaking. Visit the Jawaharlal Nehru Botanical Garden and see rare plants and trees and certain species of Himalayan flowers and Orchids. Or go to the Valley of Flowers at Yumthang or go to Tsongmo Lake and the Nathula Pass.
