About Development Area

Every man passionate about traveling will be equally excited about finding out more about the people, culture, history and traditions of the place they are exploring. This is perhaps why we find globetrotters in search for authentic books related to the city they are in. While in Gangtok, the best area to search for good reads would be at Development Area. Located at a walking distance from the famous MG Marg, this place is famous for many book shops that specialize in the culture of Gangtok and other North-eastern cities. Over time, this area has developed into a cultural hub for the residents of Gangtok. Jazz music, poetry readings, film screenings and art exhibitions tend to bring together the old and young of the city along with the visitors who revel in the myriad cultures unveiled here.

Pro Tip: Carry cash with you since many shops do not accept cards.
