This hotel has been very satisfactory. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. We love the duvets - beds very comfy. We could have a spectacular view of the valley if the mist would lift but it might be the wrong season - April 18 & 19. The restaurant in the hotel is quite good and recommended in guidebooks. Service has been good. I hadn't realized that Sikkim is making lots of efforts to be green and I appreciate that a lot.

The temple can only accommodate one persona at a time but is well known through out the state. It is also the best place to get a view of Raj Bhawan, Kanchunjunga and the surrounding valley. Close to it is Smriti Van, where one can plant saplings for their loved ones.

... use of verbs, and would often ask us the proper way to say things (and would then practice them to himself).

He really appreciated our friendliness and teaching efforts, and repaid us by being almost a tour guide instead of just a driver, often pointing things out to us, explaining what things meant, answering all of our questions with enthusiasm, ...
