About Tashi Viewpoint, Gangtok
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
This is also one of the wonder of Sikkim. Tashi View Point is that wonderful place to view the Mount Kanchenjunga in very details. Their are Telescopes, Binoculars to take the views of the Great Himalaya. The view point holds a rest house and there are a variety of shops on the Tibetans culture and their daily day life uses utensils.
Like many other view points, we get a good view of Kanchenjunga from here. We stopped here on our way to North Sikkim. I recommend others to do the same. From the road side, there are about 100 steps to climb up. It offers a good view.
Excellent place to view the range of mountains. The place is within the clouds. View of the city is also very nice from the place. Enjoy the scenic beauty with the hot coffee from shop near the view point. One can also eat the breakfast from the shops at the bottom of the steps. Very nice place for photographers. Come in the early morning to enjoy the beautiful Sikkim with the range of mountains.
Beautiful place to see Mt. Kanchendzonga and the whole mountain range in front of you.
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.
