Need advise for sikkim trip in Oct

Hello,

Need your help. I am planning to visit Sikkim from 2nd oct (will reach NJP in morning) to 9th Oct( will catch train from njp to kol in the evening). Could you please give me a good plan? I am planning to visit, gangtok, pelling, yumthang... will not visit nathu la, gurudongmar as I have kid of 6 yrs. Also if you could suggest some good hotels (budget Rs. 3k/night). From TA review, I found hotel sonam delek in gangtok is good.

Regards

Hi Subir9

My suggestive itenary is

2nd - NJP to gangtok

3rd - gangtok to tsongmo lake baba mandir (old and new)

4th - gangtok to lachung

5th - lachung yumthang and back to gangtok

6th - gangtok local s/s

7th - gangtok to pelling/darap village via ravangla

8th - pelling s/s

9th - manebhanjan falls and singsore bridge. Afternoon back to NJP

you can definitly go with sonam delek. Other oprion in gangtok would be nettle and fern. Pelling you can settle with rabdensy residency.

Hello Arijit,

Could you please tell me what would be the cost for Lachung trip? I have booked Bamboo Grove Retreat gangtok. They say that they don't have any tie up with hotels in Lachung. If I need to arrange this trip on my own then where from I can do? any good agent with negotiated rate?

Regards,

Subir

North Sikkim ideally comes under a package deal including lodging and fooding..so its better to take the whole package,rather than booking hotel yourself,and then contacting a tour operator for transportation. .

I would suggest you book the North Sikkim tour in advance as your dates fall around the time when the season would be peaking..

Majority of hotels in Lachung is kinda like a lodge.,b&b inn,homestay barring a few which match the standards of Gangtok (but charge a lot)..So be prepared. .
