MG Road Market, the main market place in Gangtok. When we reached to this place, it started raining. The market is paved with stone and looks awesome with peculiarly beautiful street lamps and flowers baskets hanging from those lamp posts. It was peak season and the market was crowded with tourists. Starkly different from other cities, Gangtok is composed of multi-storied buildings that are closely packed and strewn on the hills. Another noticiable structure in Gangtok and other towns of Sikkim is the pedestrian walkway. Enclosed with green coloured railings, the footpath is on the left side of the roads and runs approximately 35 kilometres across Sikkim.
