Ganesh Tok - Review
Ganesh Tok is a much loved tourist spot in Gangtok. Some say it is the best viewing sport for spectacular vistas of the city. Whether this is true or not, it is certainly a great place to visit while in Gangtok.
There is a small temple dedicated to the Hindu god Ganesh and the area atop a hill is also one of the most popular tourist attractions due to the amazing vistas it provides. You will also found a few small souvenir shops, kiosks and other tiny places along the way and at the top of the hill as well. The Kanchenjunga hill in all its glory can be seen from here and is not to be missed. The best time to witness it is in the morning.
A very interesting thing to do here is to dress up in the traditional clothes to take pictures. The area itself is stunning and all these little eccentricities make it and unforgettable experience.

Ganesh Tok, Gangtok Reviews
Its one of the view point at Gangtok to see the Kanchenjunga range of mountains. This place dwells with tourist all the time. Just opposite to Sikkim zoological park. A few steps raise you to the spectacular view of Gangtok ad well as the great Kanchenjunga. There is a lord Ganesha temple which brings the name to the place. I was not lucky to see Kanchenjunga because of the clouds during monsoon. Pleasant climate. Can spend some time in peace
Ganeshtok is a small Ganesh Temple. But the view from here is awesome. You can see the top view of Gangtok which will take away your breath. One can see the beautiful mountains from there. You will love the place for sure. You can see the T V Tower from there.
Lord Ganesh temple right at the top of the hill. I visited this temple during our visit to Gangtok in 2016. The view of the Gangtok city from the view point is awesome. You can see the whole city with a beautiful background of hills all around.
This is not only Ganesh Mandir but also best view point in Gangtok.. Awesome views from the viewing lounge and the circular balcony around it.. You have to climb a stair case to reach the temple and viewing point.. Mid-away you have to take off your shoes. There is gift and souvenir shop ..
I loved this place because of amazing view of the city from here. You can see the whole Gangtok city from here. There you'll found yourself in the sky's.
