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.

  • Ganesh Tok, a temple of Lord Gansha. It's located at an altitude of 6,500 ft and at a hill adjacent to that of the huge TV Tower. Tourists come here not only to offer prayers to Ganesh, but also to soak in the views from the viewing lounge and the circular balcony around it. The temple itself is quite small. However next to is the enclosed viewing lounge with glass panels. The balcony around is even better for the views. You can see the Gangtok town, rolling hill and the snow capped mountains including Kanchenjunga. You will need to climb a stair case to reach to the upper levels where the temple and viewing area are located. The views from circular galleries is just awesome.

  • The view from the Ganesh Tok is very beautiful. It has a 360 degree view from above. It is very calm and serene and the temple is pretty famous too! It is not a very high climb and the car goes till the end. Only few steps to be climbed, so is pretty much doable by everyone. Must see!

  • Beautiful temple on the top of a hill. Inside the temple photography is prohibited. From here you can see the whole Gangtok city. Must visit in Gangtok.

  • Nice views..lord Ganesha on the top of the hill..free parking and food stall also.. U will get warm coffee at nearby only..Good place for childrens and adults also.
