One comment on “Gangtok”

The geographic position of that city I live in is unique. It is cradled between three different borders, this makes the climate and culture of Gangtok very uncommon. The population consists of different tribes and cultures, but you will willful acceptance of even those who are not mainlanders. While moving to the city, it is important to keep in mind the weather and lifestyle. The weather here is unpredictable and even summers are still cool, compared to the rest of India. The lifestyle here is slow and people do not mind it. But the most exciting part is that you get a glimpse of India’s highest mountain range daily from here.
