Overlooking the traffic junction near the MG Marg taxi stand. The evening bustle of the city can be seen as just beginning here in the first photograph. The traffic movement is much disciplined. Houses are adorned with bright colours and construction is as usual how it's supposed to be on the hill slopes.
The video was taken during our ride to MG marg itself and you can see for yourself how the city fares as compared to your own city on mountains
Gangtok from a view point. At first glance you would not be able to differentiate which place is which. I found much similarity in the planning and construction of houses in Gangtok and Aizawl. However, Aizawl seemed more crowded and congested to me due to perhaps lesser choices of connected townships for the locals as compared with Gangtok which is branching out towards the north side. The terrain and geography of Gangtok seems to have broader mountains as compared to Aizawl. Gangtok is a much more commercialised township than Aizawl but no MNCs present, only local establishments running eateries, restaurants and karaoke bars, etc involved in the businesses of revenue. Whereas in Aizawl there is a KFC. Apart from that, local shared taxis are readily and cheaply available (10-50 rs) at Gangtok which is convenient for all to reach their choice of places within Gangtok. It is a model hub for education, tourism and 'commercial' travel
