Borong

Borong and Polok villages of south Sikkim are unique as they are one of the remotest villages of South Sikkim and are predominately inhabited by Bhutias and Gurungs. Another unique feature is that the village of Borong is the variation of altitude with its lower end at the Rangeet River bank and the highest point is the Borong View point. Almost all the houses in the village would have a flock of sheep and one can source out good quality sheep wool products.
