At a distance of about 21 km from Gangtok is located a historic Kabi or Khabelongstok the venue  where blood brother hood was sworn between Khye-Bumsa, the renowned ancestor of Namgyals, the former  ruling house of Sikkim and Thekong Tek the then and last Lepcha chieftain amid sacrifices and the looming form of the revered and sacred Kanchanjunga. A memorial stone adorns the place as a testimony to the historic and sacred agreement.  Prayer flags stand guard on the hill above and people from all corners of the state come with offerings of flowers to pray at the sacred spot.
