MG Marg (Mahatma Gandhi Road) is without a doubt the ‘happening place’ of Sikkim. It might sound cheesy, but while walking on MG Marg, there is the feeling that you are at the center of the universe. Maybe that’s because it is so easy to be fully present in the moment here.
MG Marg is the perfect place to enjoy a coffee or beer and enjoy the fresh air. It the epicenter of shopping (and simply hanging out) is lined with bars, cafes, travel agencies, and restaurants. Gangtok’s best restaurants are found here. Grab a table on the side of the street or overlooking it and enjoy the scene.
You might think that the place is crammed with people and cars, but luckily MG Marg is a vehicle-free, pedestrian-only zone. Also, it is illegal to litter and smoke on MG Marg making it a clean, chilled out place to hang out. Sitting on a bench and watching passerby’s is a favorite activity and is more entertaining than you might think. Any visit to Gangtok is incomplete without a visit to its town center.
