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..

  2. Great adventure in Himalaya trekking mountains and Incredible trip to India. We have make plan to explore India tourists attraction places. Same Day Agra Tour By Car or by train package for the tourists.
