Gangtok is a good neat and clean city. Weather is also good and pleasant. Site seeing are less compared to other cities. But it has its own beauty. People are good. Veg food restaurant are available. Traffic is more like other cities. But police is quick compared to other cities and disciplined. For going Nathula pass (China boarder) one has to do jugad with taxi drivers.
