Honeymoon trip to Darjeeling, Gangtok & nearby places

Hi Guyz,

I am planning to go for honeymoon to Darjeeling, Gangtok & nearby places.

The dates of arrival would be 1st Feb 2013 and departure would be 8/9 Feb.

Am looking for premium luxury hotels to stay at all the places.

Would also want to visit most of the himalayan region, hills etc.

Apart from hotels I would also want to stay in cottages or houses situated in nature's vicinity.

Can you please suggest the ideal travel plan, hotels & cottages and places to visit.

Thanks

Kalimpong can be added between Day 6 and 7 with 1 day extention of the itinerary. Lachung needed 1N/2D from Gangtok. Yuksom can be done from Pelling.

The mentioned places are highly doable in mid-feb. Weather of North Sikkim is always unpredictable, it might be friendly also in mid-feb.

Hi Ashish,

I had posted about cab services options. Can you provide how much it costs to put a non AC Innova at my disposal for 5/6 days from a local travel agent?

Also any suggestions for a travel Agent?

+1 vote for Kashmir from my side too. Kashmir and Gangtok cannot be compared with each other both has its own beauty but for honeymoon Kahsmir is any day better.

Cheers
