This temple supposedly provides spectacular views if Kanchenjunga. Couldn't experience it due to fog. There is a small shop where souvenirs can be bought. The cafe in time compound serves from decent food at affordable prices

It is situated on a ridge at a distance of 7 kms from Gangtok. From this spot one can get birds eye view of sprawling Gangtok town, while across the hills Khang-chen-Dzonga and Mt. Siniolchu loom over the horizon. A cafeteria serves hot tea., coffee and snacks. A more modern and spacious is nearing completion.

i am born and raised in gangtok and in my suggestion if you want to visit this temple/tourists attraction then i would suggest you to choose clear days specially during october or november at this time mostly you will find the clear sky and you can see the nice view of capital town including the gorgeous view of Mt. Kanchendzong

Its a nice place where you can get a Ganesh ji temple. From the tower you can get a beautiful view of Gangtok city. Near the Tok there is a spooky house which is just amazing for the kid. Get dressed in a Sikkimese attire & can take photo. Overall its a nice time pass place for the tourists.

Pros: 1. Can see whole of Gangtok 2. Mt. Kunchenjunga is visible on a sunny day. 3. Ganesh temple to offer prayers. Cons 1. There are other places like Tashi view point which offer better view of Mt. Kunchenjunga. 2. Lots of stairs have to be climbed. 3. Small balcony from where you can see whole of gangtok and it... More

Ganeshtok is a nice place to visit, we visited the spot on Oct 26, 2016. The location of the spot is very beautiful. One gets a clear view of the Sikkim Tower from Ganeshtok. There is a cafeteria at the spot. The Spooky house is fun to visit. Locals are selling souveniers. We enjoyed our visit to Ganeshtok

This visit point has only one best thing that one can have a view of kunchecnjunga mountains from here but that too is not possible if there is fog. Other than that this place has nothing notable to visit.
