About Location

The Retreat is located about 3 km from the main Gangtok mall, providing the traveller with a haven of peace and tranquility in a self contained environment. Beautifully set amidst lush green surroundings, with beds of perennial flowers and a Orchid garden, the Retreat offers relaxation and comfort in unique surroundings.

Gangtok, the capital city of Sikkim is located on a ridge at a height of 5500 metres. With a spectacular view of Mt. Khangchendzonga, the town provides the perfect base for travel through the state. A cosmopolitan town, Gangtok provides the tourist all possible amenities. But in spite of all the offerings of the modern world, a sense of mystique still embraces the town, lent perhaps by the spell cast by prayer flags fluttering in the breeze and the startling beauty of distant snow peaks.
