Renowned for its views, Ravangla is a small tourist town that lies mid-way between Pelling and Gangtok. It is one of the great tourist places in Pelling, especially in the summer months from April to July, when the natural beauty of the place bursts into bloom. Hosts of exotic birds’ flock to the forests around the town including laughing thrushes, babblers, cuckoos and hill partridges as well as the rare species of the satyr tragopan. Glorious forests of rhododendrons flourish promisingly on the slopes and dashing orchids colour the land with their vibrancy.
There are several opportunities to engage in adventure activities around the town, especially in rock climbing, rappelling, and trekking. The trek to the Maenam Wildlife Sanctuary also begins from Ravangla. Tourists also come to the town especially to gaze upon the glorious view visible from here- Mount Kanchenjunga, Mount Pandim, Mount Siniolchu, Moun Kabru among others can also be gazed upon from this town.
