Temi Excursion
  • Temi Excursion - A day excursion to the only Tea Estate of Sikkim is a pleasant experience. The lush garden in the scenic landscape of South Sikkim was established in 1960 with Sikkim Last King Chogyal Palden Thondup Namgyal's initiative. Apart from offering stunning beauty, the garden produces high-quality orthodox tea and exports, mainly in the European Countries. A visit to the Tea factory in Temi with tea testing can make the excursion more meaningful.

Fascinating folklore is associated with this place. According to the Lepcha legend, the Tendong Hill saved the people of the land in ancient times, when the flood caused devastation. Even today, the Buddhist monks visit this place and offer prayer and respect to the almighty while staying in a secluded hermitage which is the point of attraction in Tendong.

Phurchachu Hot Spring and Kahdosang Phu cave
  • Phurchachu Hot Spring and Kahdosang Phu cave - Phurchachu Hot Spring is a popular place for the local people to soak in the natural hot sulphur water that contains rich minerals with medicinal values. The hot spring, also known as Rishi Hot Spring, is located on the Rangeet River Bed near Legship on the Jorthang Pelling highway. One can walk down to the river bed for about 10 minutes and cross over a footbridge on the Ranjeet River to reach the spot from the main road. The wintertime is best for this spring as the water remains hot at this time. With a holy cave called Kahdosang Phu, this area is considered sacred by the local devotees. MORE
