Gangtok – Rumtek – Kalimpong

After breakfast, drive down to the valley floor and up the opposite ridge to Rumtek monastery, the seat of the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa, head of the Karma Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism (45minutes). The monastery is the largest in Sikkim, and a replica of its Karmapa’s monastery in Tsurphu, Tibet. Following the visit of Rumtek monastery, we continue our journey to Kalimpong.

If time permits, we will also take a peek inside the Dr. Grahams Homes’ campus, a boarding school founded by the Rev. Dr. John A. Graham, a Scottish missionary in 1900.
