A Scary Day and a Haunted Night at Pelling, SikkimWednesday, November 02, 2011
- Spending nights in dingy hotels in strange places freaks me out totally.
- Seeing a dog a kilometer away would have me in a paranoid frenzy(this applies to any moving creature that I can come across, as harmless s it could be)
- Walking all alone in a thick forest where even light barely manages to get in gives me the chills.
First, The Dog Scare!
|Pemayangtse Monastery is one of the oldest monasteries of the State. It was originally established by Lhatsun Chempo, one of the revered Lamas to have performed the consecration ceremony of the first Chogyal (Monarch) of Sikkim. This ancient monastery belonging to the Nyingma Sect has been considered as one of the premier monasteries in the State.|
Second, The Freaky Forest Scare!
|Rabdentse was the second capital of the erstwhile Kingdom after Yuksom and till the year 1814 A.D., the King of Sikkim ruled from this place. Today, the ruins lie hidden from the main road at a walking distance from the Pemayangtse Monastery.|
Finally, The Horror Scare!
|And this was the view from my Hotel room. Staying in Upper Pelling, the views were superb till the light lasted. Then after dark, the horror story begins! ;)|
Have you had any such scary experiences during your travel?
