The Garden Guesthouse Gangtok, Sikkim
A charming family run property with a breathtaking garden!
Fruit trees, bamboos, a veritable variety of rare flowers, orchids and lilies, butterflies and birds - this boutique guest house is a remarkable botanical garden! Walk into this intimate family run garden hideaway, through stone pathways, to be welcomed and whisked away by warm and passionate owners or friendly local staff while admiring the mesmerising flora and fauna along the way.
Each of the wooden floored bedrooms, comes with a cosy balcony from where one can soak in the beautiful views of the hills and Gangtok city, while enjoying the vibrant orchids and other flowers blooming in the manicured gardens.
The made to order food here is delicious and fresh all the way! Vegetables are from the organic garden and milk from the cows on the premises. We highly recommend sampling a traditional Sikkimese fare during your stay here. Last minute meals cannot be prepared so make sure you inform them in advance.
What to know
The property is located about 10 to 12 minutes from the main town of Gangtok, away from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough should you wish to explore the markets. The walk back is a steep one and we do recommend taking a tuk tuk or taxi to get back here.
Step inside the well stocked library to browse through an interesting collection of books - great for days when the weather plays spoilt sport or when you just feel like staying in.
Internet connection may be slow at time. This is completely dependent on the weather and we do recommend carrying your internet dongle or creating a personal hotspot if you’d like to check mails/ browse the web.

Awesome Things to do nearby
Rumtek monastery or the Dharma Chakra Center, surrounded by the lush greens and situated at a height of 5000 feet is one of the largest monasteries in Sikkim. This is the home of a community of monks who belong to the Kargyu sect of Buddhists, originated in Tibet in the 12th century, and a place where the monks perform rituals and practices of the Karma Kagyu lineage. The main house of the monastery has some of the rarest Buddhish religious artworks in the form of wall murals and scrolls.
Visit for the serenity and peace that the place offers and to take a sneak peak into the lives of the monks here.
Foreign nationals will require a permit to visit the monastery which can be obtained from the Government office in either Sikkim or Siliguri.
Gurudongmar lake located in North Sikkim is one of the highest lakes in the world! Legend has it that the lake remained frozen most of the year thereby not able to provide drinking water to the locals who appealed to Guru Padmasambhava when he was on his way back from Tibet. The guru obliged by blessing a part of the lake. That part of the lake remains unfrozen through the year and acts as a source of drinking water to the people of the area!
Visit this wonder when you’re in Sikkim while saying hello to yaks and blue sheep that inhabit the region. Get lost in the unpolluted colours of blue and white while soaking in the panoramic vistas of the mountains around.
The region is frequented by landslides and snow covered roads. Make sure you check weather conditions before you head out.
Tsomgo lake which means the source of the lake in Bhutia is a glacial lake in the Eastern part of Sikkim. Get mesmerised by the ever changing colours of the crystal clear lake while admiring scarlet rhododendron blooms in the distance! If you’re feeling a bit touristy, mount a decorated yak for a ride around the lake. Indian and foreign nationals require permits to visit it.
