Its short and sweet trip with friends. We enjoyed every inch of Gangtok. We stayed in hotel Nirvana Residency and road from Siluguri to Gangtok is in good condition. Although its a ghat road and one way road, but do not have steep turns. The best thing is to hire a cab from Siliguri. They may take 3000-4000 for one way.

We took 2 buses from New Jalpaiguri. The drivers of the buses were Nepali speaking. Their behaviour was good. Whenever we told them to stop the bus, they stopped. They have 3 stoppages till we reached Gangtok. One at Lohapool, then Kirney where we took lunch and finally Ranpo where we took fast food and finally we reached Gangtok at night.

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.
