Pelling is around 10 kilometres from Gyalshing or the District Headquarter. Pelling has gained a lot of importance both from tourism point of view and economic status. It has emerged today as the second most significant tourist destination in the state after Gangtok. Pelling might seem to be a mere stretch of road that is commercially bustling with a line of hotels but its main attraction lies in the breath-taking views of the Khangchendzonga and other surrounding mountain ranges that it offers. Pelling forms the base to touch several other tourist attractions in and around this hill town.
The unique Pemayangste Monastery is located less than a kilometre away from Pelling.

The fresh cool pollution-free atmosphere, the serene environment prevailing all around and the picturesque setting in which the monastery is built is perfect for serene nature walks and idyllic forest treks. Pelling is a veritable touristy paradise across all seasons. Pelling has an assortment of hotels and resorts that fits all kinds of budgets.
