We had enough time to just visit one monastery in Sikkim and decided to visit Tashiding.....the best choice I think. We had read about this online and hence knew some of the stories associated with this monastery. The drive was a difficult one and our driver just dropped us at the bottom without accompanying us. We climbed the steps amidst... More

A small yet nice Monastery - it take just 10 mins to reach this place from Rinchenpong by a car/jeep. You can stay in this area - there is a small guest house.

I visited Tashiding Monastery when I did Goechala Trek with Renok Adventures last year. Visiting any monastery is unique experience in itself but visit it when I went on a trek for Goechala with Renok Adventures it was great. I like the Rohan's personal attention to every trek detail...they are best trek organizer for goechala trek.

It is the holiest site and the heart of Sikkim. It is best to prepare your visit by reading up on it in Buddhist manuals. It is a place of pilgrimage for the Buddhist. Try to find a local who speaks English and is able to give you a tour. There is so much more to discover than seems obvious.... More

Yuksam in Sikkim has around 80 houses... but this little village has school, police check-post, greenhouse, small restaurants, wine shops, hotels, mountaineering gear-purchase shop, monasteries, Kanchwnzuanga reserve forest check-post. It's a small village but not as small as most of the other mountain villages are and is quite self-sufficient village itself. Motorable road ends here and some trek routes start... More
