to see the mighty Kanchanjunga moutain which is the 3rd highest peak in the world is something that is out of this world. you get a great view from this point. you can also see the whole of Gangtok from here. a night drive up here has its own chills and beauty.

Not a great place , Just the view is good from this place, Ganesh Mandir is there that's why it is named as Ganesh Tok other then that there is nothing much at this place. Afraid won't have much photos to share as we lasted only few mins over there. For lunch you can have a stop at Tashi view... More

Ganesha Tok View point is excellent view point where you can enjoy the scenic beauty. However its very crowded place. Local vendors will push you to capture photos wearing local dresses. However you should avoid visiting this place on cloudy days. You wont see anything except clouds.

I had been here twice and the view was always beautiful. There is a Ganesh temple located nearby. You can have a birds eye view of sprawling Gangtok town down below. We also tried few Sikkimese costumes and we were delighted to feel their culture.

This is just another added tourist attraction. you get to wear the typical sikkim dresses and take photos. lots of vendors selling souveniers. Most of these souveniers are chinese and cheap quality.

It a temple overlooking the hills. Generally crowded. Don't bother until you want to tick all the popular destinations.

The view from the top is out of the world. Please make sure that you go there on a clear day so that the Kanchenjunga and its sisters are visible in clear view. There are few sights in the world that can match seeing Himalayan peaks on the background of a clear blue sky. The temple is noisy, at least... More

It's not a good view point but if you want to visit temple then you can go.Otherwise I don't think there is anything exciting to see over there.
