Transfer and Sightseeing guidance please.

Hi,

My wife and I am visiting Darjeeling - Pelling - Kalimpong - Gangtok in Feb 2014.

Our planned itinerary is...

16 Feb - Bagdogra airport to Darjeeling

17 Feb - Darjeeling sight seeing

18 Feb - Proceed to Pelling

19 Feb - Pelling sight seeing

20 Feb - Proceed to Gangtok through Kalimpong sight seeing

21 Feb - Gangtok sight seeing

22 Feb - Gangtok sight seeing

23 Feb - Gangtok to Bagdogra airport

But I am not able to finalise on transfers and car for sight seeing. Is it possible to hire a car which will be with us all these days? If so, please provide contact of car driver or travel agent there.

or we will get transport there to commute from city to city?

Req. your assistance on this. As we are just 2 people, any small car will do.

Also suggest if any changes are required in planned itinerary.

Regards,

Nikhil Joshi

Hi Nikhil J

Your itenary for 20Feb is not correct. Revice it to the following

20 feb - Pelling to Gangtok via namchi. S/S at Temi Tea Garden, Sandruptse, chardham.

As far as car is concerned book as when required from the local syndicate. Pre booking may be expensive.

If dep of your return flight from Bagdogra is at 12 noon or before, do the itinerary in reverse way. Because, Darjeeling is closer to Bagdogra (3.5 hrs) than Gangtok (5 hrs). Kalimpong does not come on the way to Gangtok from Pelling, hence, do Ravangla, Namchi en-route.
