The "Nor-Khill" translates to the "house of jewels". Jewels here refer to the wealth of the natural beauty on display - the mountains, the valleys, the flowers and the fruits. The Kanchen garden in the hotel used to be a favourite spot of the Chogyal (King of Sikkim), who would set up his easel and paint for hours. Built by the King of Sikkim in 1932 around a beautiful garden, the Nor-Khill served as his royal guesthouse for receiving Heads of states and dignitaries.
The Nor-Khill Gangtok is now a luxury Elgin heritage hotel. The hotel is situated in the heart of Gangtok town, 5000 feet up in the Himalayas. A celebration of the elegance and grace of the Kings era in Sikkim. As you enter the hotel, warmth hugs you and makes you feel at home with a glass of sparkling cherry liquor and a silken Khada (scarf) draped around your neck. The lobby lounge of the hotel is resplendent in the bright folk art, design motif depicting dragons and flame symbols to thankas, the ornate bachu and chocsue.
