Location & Description
Kaluk, a small village, is situated at an altitude of 5600 feet in West Sikkim. You can see the town of Geyzing on the opposite hillock and even Pelling. The place offers a near 180 degrees view of the snow peaks on a clear day, including all the named peaks of the Kanchenjunga Range.
The twin city of Rinchenpong is a few miles away and so is the Rinchenpong monastery. Kaluk offers much better view compared to Rinchenpong.
Apart from its breathtaking scenic view, the lesser known Kaluk offers a great opportunity for a relaxing stay in solitude because of sparse habitation, as well as it is a place from where you can make a number of memorable trips to well-known tourist destinations in West and South Sikkim.
