1. Gangtok
Gangtok in Sikkim is the most famous tourist attraction in North East India. North East India is known to be the most peaceful region in India. But in Gangtok, you get to see a busy city life; people waking up early in the morning to catch share taxis, students travelling down from Gangtok to their schools & returning back to their homes till night. The speciality of Gangtok is the traffic management is very systematic. The most adventurous tourist spot in Gangtok is Nathula pass. The minus degree temperature there can give you true chills!
