Sikkim – My itinerary to an unexplored region

Eastern India is one of the regions, I have never explored. Visiting the seven sisters, I was always on my wish list !! Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim were on the top I wished to start with. For some reason, Arunachal did not work out so I planned for Sikkim this year. Initially , meant to be a solo trip my parents decided to come out of their self imposed exile and decided to join me as well. Hence, this trip has become now doubly special … 

I have been researching for quite some time now and finalized an itinerary. Crossed my fingers that weather is in my favour and I am able to complete all the activities I had planned…!
Day 1 : Arrive at Bagdogra and overnight halt at Siliguri. Siliguri is about 10 km from Bagdogra and most hotels/stay are available here.

Day 2: Transfer to Gangtok via Cab from Siliguri. The distance is about 120km and travel time is 4.5 hours. Overnight stay at Gangtok.
