Hanuman Tok in Gangtok

Tok means a temple, so it's a temple of Lord Hanuman. But it's actually far more than that and known for its wonderful serene ambience and a viewing area that offers spectacular view of Kanchenjunga range. If you ask me which point in the whole of Gangtok area offers the best views of Kanchenjunga, I won't hesitate to choose Hanuman Tok. It's located at an altitude of 7,200 ft and on a road that branches off from the Gantok-Nathula Highway. It's located at a distance of 11kms from Gangtok town.

"Hanuman Tok is the highest point in Gangtok and if there is a chance to view the golden crest of Kanchenjunga it is from here. Go right at the top where there is a viewpoint with map of the highest peaks that are visible on a clear day. Its mesmerising."
