"Heaven of the east"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
I along with my family (wife and two kids) visited Gangtok, Namchi, Darjeeling and Kalimpong from 2nd April to 8 April. It was one of the most memorable visit of my life. Though I have traveled almost India but this was really unique. The nature at its best supplemented with awesome people make it most memorable . Before travelling I was busy so could not make any pre-visit preparation and was very apprehensive about visit as was travelling with small kids. Fortunately I got a drivers Mob. No (Anmol-08101216161) referred by some traveler while writing his review. I just spoken to him over Mobile and he assured me a hassle free visit. After pick up from Bagdogra Airport to dropping back he became as my family member and resolved all the issue professionally with full credibility and keeping my interest at top. I would recommend at least consult over Mobile if you are in doubt. He himself is your driver guide and a well wisher who will become your family member at last . Apart from sikkim I found Namchi and Ravangla the best. Temi Tea Garden, Lamhatta and Mirik were the best. My suggestion is if you are coming to Sikkim please incude Kalimpong also in your list. Darjeeling disappointed me a lot and I shifted same day back to Kalimpong and the idea was not bad. Please ensure carrying woolens for Nathula visit as weather their is highly not predictable. Though you get sufficient required clothing's on hire. Nathula/ China Border is close on Monday and Tuesday please also keep in mind while planning your journey. One more thing try to stay away from MG Marg if you are not much interested in shopping. Would also like to suggest that please reach Bagdogra Airport while returning well in advance as it takes very much time in security clearance.

"Lovely stay"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Gangtok as hilly reagion is good for stay. Weather is pretty good in the month of may as average temp remains between 16-18 degrees. Only draw back was in the month of may-june rainy season starts and spoils your day but rain is not regular. Nathula and jhaungr lake is pretty good covered with snow and temp remains below minsu degree. Overall experience was really good. Good destination for couples and families tour. Rental cars are bit expensive at those places. People are really good there they respect their tourists and doesn't cheat them. Hotel experience was also good they also treat their tourist with all their best of services. If you have visited Darjeeling then you will find very similar to Gangtok.

"Must visit mid April to Mid May."

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Cheap and best place to enjoy the scenario of snows covering hills. ⛄. Books tickets on MMT & plan your tour with contact of Hotels Travel agent. Veg thupka, Momos, noodles, grills are having the amazing taste. Good sight scenes, People natures are quiet, Polite and warm welcoming.

"Gurudongmar lake"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Mar 19, 2018
Heaven on earth. I visited during the first weekend of March 2018. The lake was totally frozen. I was lucky to see all the snow capped peacks near the lake with the sun shining above all. What a great moment I had! The road leading towards the lake from Lachen is also fantastically beautiful. Since the weather was clear I could see all the snow capped peaks in their full glory.
