    Kunga Restaurant at Thangu: Hot Tea & Hot Noodles at 12900 Feet:

    by goutammitra Updated Apr 5, 2009

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On way to Gurudongmar we stopped for tea and breakfast at Kunga Restaurant at Thangu 12900 Feet. The temperature was about -6 or -7 degrees Celcius, that's what Army people told us. The butter could not melt and the bread was hard it had to be softened by a pressure cooker! Our briver bought us a jam, we had to settle for tea, bread and jam as the restaurant was full of other tourists going to Gurudongmar!
    This is perhaps one of highest place of the world and the last restaurant of North Sikkim. They provided us hot chimney and hot tea on arrival. We again stopped on return and had tea. At that temperature that tea was like necter!

    Apart from tea and breakfast they also keep all sorts of provisions including liquor for the tourists, at a bit extra price.

    Tourists from Bengal enjoying  hot tea before us Kunga Restaurant. Kunga Store. The Butter did not melt. Brrrrrr it's too cold out there -6-8 degrees C

    Trust me at 12000 feet you will love that shot of whiskey, Bacardi Breezer or that covetted cup of hot hot tea! And if the bar tender or the tea girl is a beauty, you feel like heaven or settling down there itself. These Lepcha girls and their families run small shanties selling Tea, Coffee, Whiskey, Rum or Bacardi Breezer and earn some living from the tourists. They survive on tourists visiting them. They do brisk business when the tourists come in group. Price is bit high but you dont' mind paying that amount when the temp is -4-8 degrees celcius.

    You also get something to eat like biscuits and hot noodles!

    We did feel like heaven when we tried that tea!

    Favorite Dish: Tea or Coffee.

    Is n't she beautiful? The mercandise on display. The beautiful tea seller obliged me for photo! The willing customer.

    if you have booked a pakage then you are sure to stop at this place not a restaurant as you'll not find one in these parts,very simple place no jaaz about the place,mostly the jeep drivers stop at this place clean the vehicle and we get to rest for lunch the first stop after we started from Gangtok.I loved the simple home grown,made food,taste was not bad.All locally grown vegetables,fresh and organic.

    relaxing after lunch
