The Tashi viewpoint is an interesting way to avail panoramic views of the city of Gangtok right up to the Nathula. Seeing the Kanchenjunga from here is sure to be a lovely experience.
If you go early in the morning, the sunrise is surely quite spectacular. This viewpoint is perhaps the lowest in the city which makes it slightly unfavorable in times of fog when you may not be able to see anything. But on clearer days the place offers lovely views of the city.
The area around it being quite picturesque, the place is a great picnic spot for families. The fresh and yummy food at the local kiosks is another added plus.

Tashi Viewpoint, Gangtok Reviews - Write a Review
It's a serene location to see the mountains surrounding Gangtok. The Kunchenjunga summit is also visible if there is no fog or clouds. The problem is that during the tourist season, the place will definitely be over-crowded which will hinder your outstandingly tranquil experience.
A beautiful point to have bird eye view of the nature. One can enjoy more here if it's a sunny day. People say one can have a view of Kanchenjunga, but could not witness it due to cloudy weather. Wonderful place for taking some snaps.
Stunning view all around the place . You could get a glimpse of Kanchenjunga at times. Serene and beautiful spot.
It's located in Tashi and about 8kms from the Gangtok town. It offers a sweeping view of Kanchenjunga snow peaks on a clear day. In fact the view of sunrise from here is unforgettable, you must reach the point before 5am. There is no admission fee. However you can pay Rs. 10/- to get closer view of the peaks through a binocular and telescope mounted here. Parking charges is there i.e Rs-20/-. There is a resting shed here as well as a shop offering tea, coffee, snacks as well as gift & souvenir items. Prices are reasonable. You need to climb a flight of stairs from the parking area to reach Tashi view point. In addition, the Phodong Monastery and the Labrang Monastery located on the opposite hills can also be seen from the Tashi View Point. Tashi View Point is a nature lover's delight
Scenic beauty and clear view of himalayas if clouds are clear. But most of the time its foggy climate. This place is at some height from the road so view is clear and there is a snacks shop for some tea or coffee.
