A hidden treasure in the capital, Champa Gali is located on the streets of Saidulajab. The area is a wonderful fusion of eateries, art, and culture. This place has it all, from enjoying one of the best teas to indulging in delicious organic food at Jugmug Thela. Sip on superb coffee or go on a fun shopping spree. There are other activities here too including poetry readings, concerts, book releases, and much more. It is a true delight to visit, read, and unwind there (also write, if you want to). There are no bars around, but who needs one when the street itself is this intoxicating?
