Places to Visit near Kaluk

Singshore Bridge - Singshore Bridge, near Pelling in West Sikkim, is regarded to be Asia's second most notable bridge, with a span of 198 meters and 220 meters inside and out. When you look down from this structural marvel, you will feel a shiver run down your spine. You'll see the extension swaying and swinging as cars pass through the scaffold one by one. When you glance down, it's terrifying, but the place has a mesmerizing charm to it.

Pemayangtse Monastery - It is one of Sikkim's oldest monasteries, having been built in 1705. Tibetan canvases adorn the entryways and divisions of the monastery. Pemyangtse Monastery is part of the Buddhist Circuit, which begins in Yuksom's Dubdi Monastery. The statue of Guru Padmasambhava (also known as Guru Rinpoche), who reinstated Buddhism in Tibet, may be found in the main petition corridor. There are roughly six divinity symbols painted in a riot of colors.

Rabdentse Ruins - It is undoubtedly a must-see in Kaluk for history buffs. Rabdentse, located on a ridge near Upper Pelling, was the former capital of Sikkim from 1670 to 1814. The Gurkha invasion destroyed it, and now only the ruins of the royal home remain. The Archeological Survey of India has declared the remaining parts of the royal house to be of national significance. The ruins provide panoramic views of Kanchenjunga. From every angle, the site exudes otherworldliness.
