Hi,

There's no specific shopping mall in and around gangtok as it is yet to develop fully but you will find a very good shopping experience in lal market gangtok.

Good restaurants in gangtok are parivar, mg marg gagntok, rosoi at mg marg gangtok, masala at mg marg gangtok.

From gangtok to reach pelling you can take jeep from gangtok or contact Kiomoi for bookings.
