Lingdum Monastery, Gangtok Reviews

  • Beautiful monastery in a serene setting. Ranka (aka Lingdum) monastery is located in the hills near Gangtok, little far from the busy parts of the city. It's surrounded by a thin forest, which makes the setting fresh and peaceful. The big monastery building and the expansive compound are calm and beautiful, covered in many drawings of many stories from Buddhist mythology. The place has most basic facilities like clean toilets, a small gift shop and a small canteen. You can see monks going about their daily business and a few will also chat with you. When we were there, their holiest Rinpoche was visiting and the whole place was humming with rhythmic chants. A serene experience.

  • This is our first Monastery hour drive from Gangtok.. You will get magnificent views of the mountains..Excellent location.. It's surrounded by forested mountains in all sides. This may be the one of the most picture perfect monasteries in Sikkim. There is a restaurant and a nice gift souvenir shop outside next to the car park. The restaurant serves Tibeten food, north Indian food, momos, cold drinks etc. We took our lunch here..average food..

  • Peaceful and mesmerizing place, I felt the power of religion. so grand and beautiful..... I was just lost....

  • Great experience to visit here.. beautiful location and a adventures road connectivity. Must visit while you are visiting Sikkim .. peaceful environment in the lap of mountain. Some of movie scene s had been shot here you will come across to see some film stars images here.
