The Jeep was average in terms of comfort. En-route, we enjoyed river rafting. The road was pretty average, and it was rough in some cases. Thankfully for us, we had a driver who was highly skilled and knew the roads inside out and that helped us to make it through safely. Whenever you are driving through hilly roads, it is important to have a good driver alongside.

By road we had a very smooth journey. We enjoyed the scenic beauty of nature. It was a very pleasing experience. It was Nature at its best, offering a once in a life time view. I had a very good view at the lovers point, and also took lots of photographs. And the best part is you can do all that on the way. More »

There were little bit bumpy roads on the way to Gangtok but it was worth it for the place which you are going to see. There were lot of scenery of Kanchenjunga on the way which you can enjoy, there was joint of river Teesta and Rangpo river which deserves a halt. Overall very good experience. More »

Travel between Darjeeling and Gangtok is an absolute delight. There are many shared taxis available between these 2 tourist destinations and at much affordable rates. Travel time is around 3 hours and with these expert drivers it can be even lesser. Once you start from Darjeeling, you come down towards Kalimpong Sikkim touch the Tista river. Most of the drive is along this river and it offers an excellent view. Roads in WB are ok but gets excellent once you enter Sikkim.You are supposed to show your ID cards once you enter the state of Sikkim. Be prepared. More »

It was a normal trip. There were two stoppages. You can get all fast foods you want to eat. The sights are great. The Sikkim Manipal University also comes in between. You can get shared taxis for the route for Rs. 200 each. It would be better for a family to book the middle 4 seats as without there is place for only 3 persons. So, it would be better if you book the middle seats for your family. More »
