"Sikkim and Darjeeling - A comparison" new review

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Today
Sikkim was just great in Cleaniness and hospitality as against Darjeeling which is very dirty and not so good in helping others. Likewise, Sikkim have great views to offer anyway you go - Nathula, Lachung, Pelling and Namchi (the places I visited). In comparison Darjeeling has only Tiger Point to offer which also show much on Cloudy days. A famous point is Ghoom Monastry. However much scenic in variety is Dali Monastry which tour guides do not frequent. Japanese Pagoda is just another good point to visit. A visit to tea garden is mandatory but due to private involvement it is much better planned than other excursions The negative points for both is the traffic in Gangtok and Darjeeling during Season. On narrow winding roads, both way traffic make traffic snarls and going across city make a laborious process. Need is for making one way traffic across these cities and strictly enforcing. At many points, where there was marking that it is a one way road, both side traffic was going on and there appeared no enforcement ( Darjeeling). In Gangtok, the redeeming point was Horn' throughout the city and strict enforcement by both - Drivers voluntarily and by traffic police If one wants to relax, not worthwhile to visit during peak season. Enjoying the mountains, the best season is during off season and off monsoon .

"Beautiful Place"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Jan 22, 2018
The entire city is located on hills so don't even think of driving by yourself there until you have a good amount of experience of hill driving and you do not freak out at blind turns because the driving of general public there is quite rash.
Okay so the things to do/see :
1. Beautiful mountains (you may be able to spot Kanchenjunga)
2. Picturesque Valleys
3. Go via Mirik so you can get to Nepal and buy some souvenir from there (cheap too)
4. Get a taste of local food momos and maggi)
5. Enjoy the toy train.
6. Party with friends :)
