Gangtok in September

Hi,

We are planning to visit Gangtok in September. (Not August as I mentioned in some post)

I am a Club Mahindra member & would like to stay in their resorts only. They have one in Gangtok & 1 in Baiguney (Jorthang). We are 5 adults & 2 children.

I have made a plan for us.

1st day - Arrival at Bagdagora Airport by afternoon.Reach Gangtok by evening. Overnight Gangtok

2nd day - Local Gangtok sightseeing

3rd day - Gangtok to Baiguney(Jorethang) via Ravangla & Namchi. Overnight at Club Mahindra Baiguney

4th day - Proceed to Pelling sight seeing, Overnight Club Mahindra Baiguney

5th day - Early morning checkout.Proceed to New Jalpaiguri via Darjeeling. Catch train in the afternoon.

Can extend 1 more day if something serious being missed out.

Please suggest any changes if required & also tell me the fare for Innova/Tavera

Hi Orissa Guy

As you will be staying in Club Mahindra properties i think plan is OK. You cannot move from those places so you have to do day sightseeing only. The care fares are roughly

Bagdogra to Gangtok = Rs.2500.

To (Innova / Scorpio) Tsomgo Lake = Rs.3500

Gangtok local sightseeing = Rs.2000.

Gangtok to Pelling : Rs.2600.

Pelling local sightseeing = Rs.2400.

Can we not hire an Innova for full tour? Heard some limitations between West Bengal & Sikkim vehicles
