Photographer's Note

This picture is taken from our hotel window (Hotel Garuda) in Pelling.
Its a beautifully located hill at a height of 6800ft initially covered with wild thick jungle providing hideouts and shelter to many indigenous wild animals of that period including Wildman( may not be yeti though). Slowly this gentle ridge attracted cattle herders, shepherds and some mediators allowing human habitation around it . This ridge being located in between two old Buddhist monasteries (Pemayangtse and Sangacholing) in took no long time to develop into a full fledged village named Pelling remained from the name of an old monastery Pemaling choeling . Today, this little village Pelling has become the best chosen tourist destination in Sikkim due to its scenic location and the advantage of having the closest view of world third highest mountain Mt. Khang Chen-Dzonga and other snow peaks from here.
