The Nor-Khill was built by the King of Sikkim in 1932 and is the oldest heritage hotel in Gangtok. The Norkhill has entertained guests like his holiness The Dalai Lama, the US Ambassador to India His Excellency John Galbraith, movie stars etc. The lobby is resplendent in the bright folk art, design motifs depicting dragons and flame symbols to thankas, the ornate bachu and chocsue and traditional jewellery. Many rooms at the Norkhill, as well as it’s gardens, have wonderful views of the Kanchenjungha , the second highest Mountain peak in the World. The rooms are quiet, elegant and expansive with an air of serenity about them, reflecting a typical Sikkimese ambiance.
