LOCAL POINTS OF INTEREST IN BORONG

Borong is a small beautiful village near Ravangla in South Sikkim at an altitude of 5800 ft. With Himalayan Mountains as the backdrop, Borong is an ideal place for those looking for some peace and tranquility. You can enjoy a comfortable stay at Wild Flower Retreat in our cottages around a wildflower garden or in well appointed rooms, and catch a beautiful view of the snow-covered Himalayan Mountains from all of them. When the sun kisses the snow peaks at the time of sunrise, it is a sight that is worth the effort that you put in to visit Borong. You can also relish this splendid scenery from your room while listening to the chirping of unique birds. To be very frank, if you include the various species of birds that we see in our garden, we find enough points of flying interests within our property and then there are the wildflowers, butterflies, snowcapped mountains and the forests around us. But just in case, you are the active one and would like to discover in and around Borong, here are a few points of interests. We will be more than happy to organize a transport to reach some of these places, if you do not have one of your own.
