Ridge Park, Sikkim, India

With gorgeous views both to the east and west, the ridge – a shaded promenade cresting Gangtok’s upper reaches – promises a pleasant stroll amid manicured parks and gardens. Located within one of the green zones here is the Flower Exhibition Centre, a modestly sized greenhouse full of exotic orchids, anthuriums and lilium. The impressive Tsuglhakhang temple to the south of the ridge is often open to the public early in the morning and during major festivals.

Nearby, the imposing Chogyal Palace (former royal residence) is closed to visitors, but it’s a fine sight from a distance nonetheless.
