The Elgin Nor-Khill, Gangtok - Authentic India Tours

The Elgin Nor-Khill, Gangtok

Located at 5000 feet in the Himalayas rights in the heart of Gangtok town is the fabulous Elgin Nor-Khill Gangtok. This luxury heritage hotel celebrates the elegance and grace of the Kings era in Sikkim. You’ll experience the warmest of welcomes as you step into the lobby lounge, awash with bright folk art depicting dragons and flame symbols and the snug interior features etchings, lithographs, period teak furniture, oak panels and crackling fireplaces.

Famous guests have included the Crown Prince of Sikkim, the Dalai Lama and Hollywood celebrities Shirley MacLean and Michael Douglas.

Nor-Khill translates as ‘house of jewels’, referring to the natural beauty of the surrounding flowers, fruit, mountains and valleys, which can be seen from each of the 25 deluxe rooms. The hotel is perfectly located to explore the nearby ancient monasteries, mountain scenery and pine forests, and is mere walking distance from the famous M.G road (High Street) and its cafes, restaurants and bars.

Take your pick from sumptuous traditional dishes or Asian and European set menus in the wood-panelled dining room, or light snacks and drinks from the outdoor gazebo. Have a cool drink in the bar accompanied by soft refrains from the grand piano before heading to your room to relax.
