Though the access to this monastery is tough. The road is broken, but once you are inside the monastery you feel at peace. It is setup in quite a big place. Great place to pray and feel at peace with yourself and the world

One of the biggest monastery in sikkim. Very nice temple and surely not to be missed. If weather is clear can have pictures from here with kanchenjangha in background.

Ranka monastry should be a must see destination for tourists who visit Gangtok.
It is quite a good drive with good views along the hills, reaching there you get a sense of peace and calm.
You can visit the temple, the place has wide open spaces away from hustle and bustle to refresh the mind.
Also buy some souveniers, and bet you souveniers there are cheaper than ones you find in gangtok shops.

Try to visit early in the day to get less traffic and to see other destinations on the same day
