Samdruptse Rock Garden - Nearly 72 kilometres from Gangtok near Namchi in South Sikkim is Samdrupfse which means in Bhutia language "The Wish Fulfilling Hill". At 135 feet unique statue of Guru Padmasambhava is installed at the top of Samdruptse. His Holiness the Dalai Lama laid the foundation stone of the statue on 22nd October, 1997. It is said to be the highest statue of Guru Padmasambhava in the world. It took 1000 labourers and scores of experienced engineers and highly skilled architects and sculptors nearly took three years to complete this awe inspiring and towering statue. A two section Ropeway from Namchi to Samdruptse will be commissioned within two years. It will pass through the Rock Garden.
