) First of All Pedong is not a good place for To enjoy the Kanchanjunga though scenic beauty of Pedong is really good and nice. for accommodation at pedong you can try Jelepla village resort or Silkroute retreat.

2) Instead of Pedong you can stay at " Silarigaon" which is 8-10 km distance from pedong and offer good view of Kanchanjunga. For accommodation at Silarigaon you can get good number of homestays such as Nirmala homestay , waiyba homestay . cost around 700-800 per person per day with fooding lodging everything.

I am mentioning two Plan where you can get - Snow , Kanchanjunga and jungle.

Day one - Reach NJP and transfer to Silarigaon.Overnight at Silarigaon.

Day Two - Silarigaon to Aritar via reshi . overnight at aritar or back to Silarigaon

Day three - Silarigaon to Zuluk via Rongoli , Lingtham. pademchen Zuluk and overnight at Zuluk.

Day Four - MOrning Zuluk to sunrise view point at thambhi or Lungthung. (FRom lungthung you can see magnificent view of sunrise over kanchanjunga) and back to zuluk . after breakfast ready to Gangtok via KUpup lake , old baba mandir , Tsangmo Lake ... You can see the snow in this route and chances of snow fall in this route at end december. .Overnight Gangtok.

If you not see snow in this route visit North sikkim from gangtok.

In terms of forest you can visit " Fambang lo " near gangtok . 45 minutes drive from Gangtok.

This route is called OLd Silk route and you can try. Zuluk you can stay at Homestay. Aritar you get good hotel. This route you need to be your own transport.



Day one - NJP to Kaluk / Bermiok . for 180 degree view of Kanchanjunga. (Kaluk / rinchenpong /bermiok is only places round west sikkim whee you can see the entire range of Kanchanjunga.
