Situated in the heart of Gangtok, 5000ft up in the Himalaya, the Elgin Nor-Knill was built in 1932 by the King of Sikkim and served as his royal guesthouse for receiving heads of states and dignitaries. Referring to the lush surrounding gardens, ‘Nor Khill’ directly translates to ‘house of jewels’ and is a fitting tribute to the natural beauty of the mountains, valleys and flowers that can be seen from the property. The interior is grand and cozy and furnished with Burmese teak furniture, oak floorboards and panelling as well as crackling fireplaces. Each of the spacious rooms offers excellent views of the mountains or valleys.
