The roads to Pelling are very very bad. In fact, I would go to the extent to say that in some patches there are no roads at all and I think that is synonymous to North East. The drivers in the NE are very trained and disciplined. They follow traffic discipline and do not overtake unnecessarily.

As we had plan to reach Pelling via Namchi and Rabangla we were we too late to reach Pelling. The road was too bad at night. We were literally shivering with fear of, don't know for what. But my advice for the traveller is, if you have any plan to Namchi and reach Pelling, then leave very early in the morning and reach safely at Pelling.

Our journey starts from Gangtok via Samdruptse, Sidhheswar Dham, Chardham Namchi, Sai Baba Mandir, Tathagatat Sal Rabong Temple of Lord Budha. Tathagatat Sal is a very nice place, must see. Itís a very nice location, free from noise and lastly after full day sight visit we reached Pelling.

Worst road. Travelling time almost took 6-7 hours but no other option available. No place to visit in route. Early morning depart from Gangtok and we reached in afternoon. Spare one day for travel, lot of dust in route due to hill area, ac was off and window was open.

Travelling from Gangtok to Pelling was very adventurous. The road side sight was really awesome. You can feel mountains and rivers flowing in between the mountains. Boating options are also there in the way. Weather was marvellous.
