The hills are more rugged here, the monasteries are more important and a greater number of people are actually Sikkimese. The first Sikkimese capital was Yuksam, in the north of western Sikkim, and the ruins of the second palace of Sikkim's Chogyals known as Rubduntse Ruins lay near Pemayangtse Monastery in Pelling.
