Trekking Stores in Gangtok: Climate Zone

On my recent visit to Gangtok en route to the South Col trek to Green Lakes in North Sikkim, I was pleasantly surprised to see a number of new trekking stores in the town.  One of them, I visited, Climate Zone, located on Tibet Road was well stocked and had a very pleasant owner Tashi Namgyal.

Tashi has been sourcing equipment from Kathmandu, the mecca of cheap trekking equipment and also from Wildcraft in India. He has a fairly good collection of sleeping bags, jackets, backpacks, boots etc.

I also found that he was stocking original Petzl headlamps from the US as well as Nalgene water bottles.

Tashi can be reached at 08116800921/03592-201220 and his store is open from 9.30 am to 8 pm Monday to Saturday.(

  1. The down jackets we bought at the Climate Zone are very high quality. It are The North Face jackets with a hood and 900 g density down filing. Now it is freezing -10ºC and they keep us warm..
