    safina trip to northeast

    Our honeymoon trip to northeast was full of love, peace, and amazing experiences. On our most special trip, we wanted to visit the hills and the cities of Gangtok and Darjeeling proved to be perfect when we researched about them. So all that we needed was a good package and that too was taken care of by Travel triangle when we stumbled upon their website while searching for deals on Google.

    TravelTriangle gave us a customized package that included everything that we wanted and was as per our budget. After getting multiple quotes for it from their various agents on board, we selected one and were now all sorted when it came to our honeymoon trip to northeast.

    Day 1: Arrival in Darjeeling

    reached to Darjeeling

    Upon our arrival at the NJP station in Siliguri in West Bengal, we were received by our driver cum guide for the trip. We soon boarded the cab and headed towards Darjeeling. It was a 70 km ride and it took us around 3 hours to reach. By the time, we checked into our hotel, it was almost night and post some dinner, we decided to call it a night. Overall, even though it was a bit tiring due to travel we enjoyed the day since we could witness the beautiful sceneries from the window of our car.

    Day 2: A glorious sunset and some great sightseeing!

    We got up early morning today to witness the sunrise from the Tiger Hill over Mt. Khangchendzongha and it was every bit specaturlar as they say. Later while we were returning to our hotel, we also visited the Ghoom Monastery and Batasia Loop. Both the places were nice additions to the day. Later in the day, we saw many more places like Himalayan Mountaineering Institute, Tenzing Rock, and Tea Garden, Japanese Temple, and Ropeway. Overall, this was a good day for us and one one of the points that I particularly liked was that our driver was extremely helpful and understood us very well.

    Day 3: The Kalimpong experience

    We visited another hill station today, Kalimpong and it was an okay experience for us. The drive to this place was scenic but apart from temples and a few other places, we found there was nothing much of interest there. I would recommend people who don’t like visiting temples to skip this one on your northeast trip. But yes, the place was beautiful nonetheless.

    Day 4: The many wonders of Gangtok

    Today post breakfast at the hotel, we began our journey towards Gangtok. Upon reaching there and checking into our room, we proceeded for a half day city tour. We visited many places and these included Institute of Tibetology, Enchey Monastery, and Handicrafts centre among others. Later, we checked back into our hotel and enjoyed the rest of the evening enjoying the many facilities that the property offered.

    We visited the Tsomgo Lake today and it was a spectacular experience. The lake was around 55 km away from Gangtok and it was a wonderful ride. Upon reaching there, we visited the famous Baba Mandir first and then enjoyed the views of the lake. The yak ride that we had there was also a really fun experience. Later back in Gangtok, we spent our last night roaming on the MG Road eating and having fun. This was a nice touch to our final day.

    Day 6: Goodbye, Northeast!

    This was our last day and post breakfast, we set out on the journey back to the airport to reach our home.

    Overall our honeymoon trip to the northeast was a delightful affair. From the snowy mountains to the sightseeing to amazing moments that we spent together – everything was perfect. Travel triangle also played a great part in organizing our trip and their agents were well connected with us throughout.

    Not So Great Experiences

    Although Kalimpong was a great place, we feel it did not suit our palette. We could have swapped it for something else since there were only temples there.
