Both the places are becoming congested by hotels. You can see Kanchanjangha Peak more prominently from Pelling. Moreover, there are some scenic places like Rinchenpong, Barsey, Hilley around Pelling, which are not so crowded and where you can have small treks too.

If you take Innova (with seat belts) from reputed agent, the charges will be for Darjeeling - Gangtok or Darjeeling - Pelling = Rs.3500-4000.
