The Nor-Khill (“the house of jewels”) in the state of Sikkim in eastern Himalayas in Gangtok is known for its tradition and ethnic Sikkimese ambiance. The Kanchan garden affords a rich view of the hills with Kanchenjungha in the background, which inspired the Chogyal of Sikkim to paint for hours. The Nor-Khill was built by the King of Sikkim in 1932 and is the oldest heritage hotel in Gangtok, which entertains guests like his holiness The Dalai Lama, the US Ambassador to India His Excellency John Galbraith, movie stars and you and your family. The lobby is resplendent in the bright folk art, design motif depicting dragons and flame symbols to thankas, the ornate bachu and chocsue and traditional jewellery available at an in-house curio shop.
The Nor-Khill is an exponent of typical Sikkimese architecture in the midst of a serene atmosphere and greenery in the heart of Gangtok. Each of the 32 rooms affords a taste of the lifestyle in luxury and offers a magnificent view from the windows. They are done up in vivid colours to showcase the design elements that surrounded royalty of yore. The rooms are quiet, elegant and expansive with an air of serenity about them, which reflects a typical Sikkimese ambiance.

Sitting in one of the quaint gazebos,
the tea seems to be flavoured by the refreshing winds of the Himalayas . The Silver Oaks was built in 1930 and once belonged to the prominent architect Frederick Desraj who built the old Teesta Bridge .
