Namchi- which means Sky High, is the south district headquarter of Sikkim. Located at an elevation of 4314ft, it is home to some of the most spectacular locations this Himalayan state has to offer. As astounding as it sounds, Namchi is slowly being sculpted into an artefact of architecture and pilgrimage. With the famed Char Dham at Solophok hills and the awe-inspiring statue of Guru Padmashambhava at the wish fulfilling hill, Namchi stands tall as a must visit destination.

Dotted with cherry blossoms as you traverse the countryside, you will witness the lone tea garden of Sikkim. The Temi-Tea garden spread across the sloping Temi hills, sits proud as the producer of flavoured tea, known of its distinguished taste and odour. A small diversion ahead leads the traveller to the Tathagata Tsal at Ravangla which hosts a 130ft statue of Lord Buddha and is a popular pilgrimage site.
One may wonder if there’s anything more this place can offer. As you ascend uphill to witness the tallest statue of Guru Padmasambhawa at Samdruptse (the wish fulfilling hill), you will be greeted by a pleasant surprise – The Namchi Ropeway.
