Rabdentse Ruins, Pelling Reviews

  • Very Nice Place.. must visit with friends or youth person (not for older and children) because to reach this place you have to tracking through jungle on mountain for about 1200 meters. It's the older capital of Sikkim. The kings palace and the birds sanctuary is there.. view is stunning from here. I really liked the place. One get really peace here.

  • Our experience was quite magical because when we visited, there was a light drizzle and a blanket of mist around the whole place. Even the climb to the ruins was fun. Quite well maintained. Must see if you are in the vicinity.

  • Simply wonderful. It's one of the must visit place in Sikkim. The journey to the ruins is thrilling. The old walls, statues, and nature's most spectacular views makes this place unique. If you are planning to visit Sikkim then you must visit this place or else you will definitely miss something. Happy journeys!!!

  • Though it is very far from main road . And it requires a lots of long walk . By normal walking and sight seeing it takes 45 min to reach the ruins from main entrance . The beauty of the place is unbearable . Completely natural . It's a must watch place if you are adventure seeker . The ruins may be degraded cause of the wars but the maintainance of the place is too good. The view of the mountain range is too mesmerizing . It's a picturesque place . If you ever have a chance to be near it do visit.

  • The ruins are kept well. Interestingly, there were no provision made for protection of fort were seen during our visit. Unlike other forts that I have visited before, this for lacks cannons/Windows made for keeping an eye on any enemy movement. The forest surrounding the fort is lovely. Only thing is there is bird park on the way where all exotic birds are kept. It is stupid idea to keep such a bird park in serene forest.
