The great Himalayan ranges and the Kanchenjunga can be sighted at close quarters from Pelling. Pelling also serves as the base camp for treks in West Sikkim

Pelling and its surrounding areas are home to many tribes and communities such as Bhutias, Lepchas, Tamangs, Limboos and Marwaris among others. These people have contributed to the diversity of Pelling; its food and its culture.
