Sikkim Tour Plan – get ideas

Sikkim Tour plans

Planning to travel now or later on to Sikkim?? This is the place to visit in a gap of 3 4 years. Most people prefer the beach to the hills. So, let me tell you all about Sikkim.

Estimates and planning

  1. it cost near about per person rs.8000.

Here are the things that can help you with planning your trip:

  • Identifying travel route: Sikkim’s most frequent travel route is Gangtok City Tour and a day trip to Nathu La Pass. You can add Pelling along with this trip since you have more time. You can also consider visiting the gurudongmar lake along with yumthang valley for three days and two nights, this trip along with Gangtok city tour will be on both your budget and time. Otherwise you can consider going on the old silk route to Zuluk, which is also a beautiful route and on this route you can also go to Pelling.

  • Hotel and vehicle booking: if you’re going to stay in Gangtok, booking a hotel in advance is a good option. This will save time in finding a hotel and you can take advantage of offers from different travel portals. There would be a lot of brokers trying to sell you travel deals that you might want to ignore once you reach NJP station. It’s better to book a Sikkim number plate vehicle from the taxi stand after talking to the driver directly. You can take the same vehicle or book a new vehicle from Gangtok for onward tours. If you’re heading to Zuluk or Yumthang Valley, ask the driver to arrange your stay, he’ll quote you a consolidated price including travel, Hospitality and food, that’s a great deal. Talk to a few drivers before finalizing the deal, but there are good local drivers and we didn’t feel they were trying to charge a high price.

  • Other Cost: If you take a consolidated driver tour, you’ll have covered all three major meals, so you’ll only have to pay for snacks or coffee. It will be extra to take a Yak ride or other outdoor activities, but the price is not exorbitant.

Let’s now plan Have Day1 to Day5:

Day 01: NJP/ Bagdogra to Gangtok (5,500 ft) 
Sightseeing (Rumtek Monastery, Botanical Garden, Do – Dul Chorten, Tibetology Institute, Flower show and cottage industry) after breakfast. Free evening for personal activities and shopping. Gangtok overnight.

Day 02: Gangtok (Rumtek + other points) 
Go to Sightseeing after breakfast (Rumtek Monastery, Botanical Garden, Do – Dul Chorten, Tibetology Institute, Flower Show and Cottage Industry). Free evening for personal shopping & activities. At Gangtok overnight.

Day 03: Gangtok (Tsomgo Lake & Baba Mandir) 
Excursion to Tsomgo Lake after an early breakfast –(12,400 ft). The Lake’s cool water is in perfect harmony with the beauty of the scenery around and Baba Mandir. Go back to Gangtok. Gangtok overnight.

Day 04: Gangtok to Ravangla (7000 ft) 
After breakfast transfer to Ravangla{ through Temi Tea Garden-It is the state’s only tea estate that produces a top variety of tea for the international market. The tea garden spread over a gentle hillside from the Tendong Hill provides a magnificent view of the surrounding villages and the “Wish Fulfilling Hill” Sandruptse Monastery. A unique 135 ft statue of Guru Padmasambhava is installed that is said to be the highest in the world.
