Road is good apart from some stretches. You can feel the beauty of TEESTA River along the road till Rangpo. If you want to have your food on the way you can have it at Kirney. Food quality is good here. Better to travel during day time and try to hire a SUV if you want a comfortable journey.

We took a shared taxi with two extra seats for comfortable journey @200 INR for 6 persons. It was the last taxi from Siliguri and hence the driver told us that he needed to purchase some vegetables etc. from Siliguri market for his shop at Gangtok. Which took 45 minutes extra and again he stopped at one more place for 30 min. There were ladies and kids in our group, and all of us had to wait for so long and took 2 hours extra to reach our hotel which was very hectic. More »

The hotel wild orchid is located at Development area, Gangtok which is around 3-4 kms from taxi stand. You need to take local cab to reach the hotel. The appearance and reception of the hotel was ok. Rooms which we had taken was good with plenty of space, carpet, TV, geyser etc. View from one...more »

I took a hired Innova from Siliguri. In Gangtok, outside vehicles are not allowed to run for local transport. So I could have taken my own car as well. In any case, we need a local vehicle from Gangtok for the sight seeing and other places to visit. So it is up to you. More »

This hotel was not a good choice. I was there with my friends and family. I went there on New Year eve, and to my surprise I found that only our group was the only people staying in the hotel. The hotel lies at a turn in the main road and thus we needed to walk a little to access taxis. The...more »

The way from Siliguri to Gangtok is beautiful, with beautiful view of the Teesta River along the way. The road is slightly patchy at some points, but, if you have a good driver, the journey could be enjoyable. Our driver showed us various points and spots on the way. He told us a lot about the people and culture of Gangtok. Put on light music, and enjoy the drive to Gangtok. There are food joints on the way, which serve steaming hot momos, and a good, tasty helping of wai wai. More »

The Bamboo Grove Retreat is far, the most comfortable experience in Gangtok. A perfect place to come back to, after a tiring day full of sightseeing, traveling, shopping, etc. The best part about the place is its lush, Serene, and beautifully located. We were lucky to get a view of the snow...more »

The road condition to gangtok from siliguri is really pathetic up to Tista Bazar. It needs to be improved. The natural beauty through out the road is awesome. There was hotels, pumps restaurant/dhaba are there through out the road. The experience in the share taxi is not also very good, but its ok. More »
