Hanuman Tok, Gangtok Reviews
It's a very beautiful place in gangtok. One of the must seen place there. From Hanuman the scenic beauty is worth watching . You have to climb some steps(around 100) to reach there. So not recommended for old or who has issue with his/her legs.
Really a beautiful place located at Gangtok, Sikkim. One you view beautiful scenery from this place. Know for lord Hanuman for whom shrine is present here. Also if the weather is clear one could have awesome view of Kanchenjunga peak from here. Also there are numerous herbal plants available here. Even the locals make sure this place is not littered to maintain the green atmosphere. Must visit place for all the tourists.
Its a beautiful view point. Many mountain peaks including Mount Kanchenjunga are viewable when whether is clear with details mounted on a board there. It's obviously situated at a good height and reaching here is quite a task specifically for the people who suffer from height sickness particularly when the temperatures are low. But when you reach this place you realize that the money, the effort put in was worth. The beauty of this place speaks for itself.
This is one of the Wonderful Door of Heaven. The Hanuman Tok(meaning temple) is a temple for God Hanuman situated on the top of hills. Pleasant Weather of this region and with the wide scale view of Mount Kanchenjunga is silent beautiful of Great Himalaya.
One of my favourite place to visit in Sikkim. The view from Hanuman tok is amazing and the best thing about that place is it is maintained and serviced by Army. So clean and calm place. I love this place worth traveling.
