It acts as the starting point for the trek to maenam la wildlife sanctuary.Ravangla offers unmatched views of the Greater Himalayas. The beauty of its landscape and its location as a transit point to nearby destinations has made Ravangla a must-visit place. Ravangla stages the Pang Lhabsol festival in a grand manner every year around August-September.Tourism in the town is becoming increasingly popular and it is an offbeat destination for many tourists. One can get an excellent view of snow clad mountains and peaks. The place is an ideal location to engage in adventure activities such as trekking and hiking. There are several trekking spots that are located in the nearby mountains and this can be an exhilarating experience.

Interesting Trek Nearby Ravongla:

Maenam Hill:

A steep three to four hour hiking trails leads from the Ravangla – Ralang road to the top of Maenam Hill through the thick forest of oak, chestnut, rhododendrons and magnolia. The Maenam Wildlife Sanctuary is a natural habitat of the Red Panda, Himalayan Black Bear and many species of deer. The views are wonderful and you just might see rare red pandas and monal pheasants (Sikkim’s state bird). A guide is useful to avoid getting lost in the forest on return. Longer treks continue to Borong village. A short distance away is the legendary Bhaley Dunga, a kind of rocky spur which juts out from the ridge top above Yangang village.

Rangit Water World:

Rangit Water World is situated 26 kms. downhill from Ravangla. It is an ideal stopover place for the young ones. The lake is formed by the Rangit Dam and offers boating, fishing and swimming facilities.

Bon Monastery:

Besides the main Legship road, 5.5 kms. from central Ravangla at Kewzing, small but fascinating Yung Drung Kundrak Lingbon is the only Bon Monastery in Sikkim. The Bon faith, preceded Buddhism in Tibet. It’s relevance and impact on Buddhist philosophy is brought superbly alive by the impeccable explanations of the monastery’s joyful English teacher, Lama Yungdrung Tenzing.

Temi Tea Garden:

At a distance of only 16 km from Ravangla, it is one of the most beautifully located tea garden of Sikkim. The journey through the winding road via Dentham is even more attractive. A 9 km trek from Dentham through the Tendon sanctuary goes to a dormant volcano, an unforgettable place to view Kanchenjunga and Singalila range in the west and vast plane lands in the south. Even Pelling in West Sikkim and Siliguri town is visible from the view point of Tendong. Ralang hot spring is situated at a distance of 26 kms from Ravangla. The monastery on the way holds the famous kagiang festival in December.

Tendong Hill:

Tendong Hill (8500 feet) offers a spectacular 360 degree view of Sikkim and the distant plains of North Bengal. The word Tendong means upraised horn from the Lepcha lore relating the time when a great flood submerged their land and Tendong rose up miraculously like a horn to save them. Even today prayers are offered from the hilltop before the onset of the monsoons to appease the deities and prevent a recurrence of the calamity.

Connectivity:

It accommodates within its geographical boundary heterogeneous social groups with diverse history, society, culture and tradition.
