Shingba Rhododendron Sanctuary, Gangtok

4.5
#1 of 13 in Wildlife in Gangtok
Take in the richness of fragrance and flamboyance of colors at Shingba Rhododendron Sanctuary, home to nearly 40 different species of rhododendron trees. Nestled in a lush valley and surrounded by imposing mountain ranges, this scenic nature park comes to life during the spring season, while in winter its beauty is enhanced by the heavy snow blanketing the valley. Listen to the chirping birds soaring high up in the air as you stroll through the park, one of Sikkim's popular trekking destinations.

  • On the way to Yumthang valley , this santuary is passed by.There is no entry ticket. Shingba sanctuary is amazing place for nature lover. Must visit during the months of March, April and May when the purple, white and red rhododendrons blossom because that's when the sanctuary looks adorned with different colours.
  • "Fire on Hill's" such a beautiful place in North Sikkim. Feels like a heaven on earth. Awesome
