Hasiven's 6 days trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling
The quote they showed was lower compared to others. However there is always a catch and is in the fine print. They have not included all the places to visit in Pelling. To visit the other places we had to pay extra including the parking fee. And on the day of transfer from Pelling to gangtok they mentioned only transfer. We went to Ravangla Buddha Park and almost wanted to go to namchi. both of which fall on route from Gangtok to Pelling, Again in Gangtok half day trip to Tsongmo Lake and rest of the day left idle. To visit rest of places, we had to pay extra. Such finer details which are most important were not communicated to us.
THE BEST PART WAS THE DRIVER- CHANDAN- FULL CREDIT TO HIM FOR SHOWING US ALL THE PLACES AND HE HAD GOOD KNOWLEDGE OF SIKKIM TOURISM. THE RATING 5/10 IS EXCLUSIVELY FOR CHANDAN ONLY.
THE WORST PART MAYEE- TOUR COORDINATOR AND DEVLINA BOOKING AGENT.
Both at Pelling and Gangtok they have not made any reservation and no bookings were made in our name. And we had to wait in freezing temperatures while Hotel reservations were being confirmed. Each time for 15-20 minutes, before i had to call Devlina again and point her about the lapses in service.
Luckily at Kalimpong we had a reservation in our name- This after a stern talk to Devlina.
Coming to Mayee- she was to coordinate with us by 10 pm the day before (if im not wrong about the timings) about the next day schedule including the timings of check out from hotel. only on first day and the next i got updates. Rest of the times we had to communicate with CHANDAN and get the timings. Again full credit to CHANDAN for taking good care of us for the entire trip. But that should not cover up the lapses on part of tour coordinator- whose job was to communicate with the guests, which she failed to do so and I believe she was the one supposed to confirm room bookings before we arrived at the destination.
That to this being off season and in Pelling, we were among the 2 families staying at the hotel. In Gangtok there were 3 other families staying in the entire hotel. In Kalimpong we were the only guests staying in Hotel- Such low and off season also we were made to wait for room reservation. NOT ACCEPTABLE.
But the hotels provided were good and met the needs of our travel.
NB: i have seen some reviews where one particular guest was hurled abuses (Reason - what ever it may be) DO NOT do this with me for speaking up the truth honestly.
Dhwanidjani's 7 days trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling
Very beautifully planned and our trip was successful by completing all the itnenary. Travel agent was very knowledgeable and made efforts to make our trip successful.
Tsaungu lake was the best. We experienced a snow fall and driver was very opt of the trip having knowledge of each and very small things. Hotel at Pelling was the best.
Overall superb experience.
Sonam's 7 days trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling
Management by 'Lungba travels' was very good. Deepak sir was there at every step to help us. We had Rakesh bhaiyya with us for our transportation in Gangtok and Pelling. He was very helpful. Jyoti bhaiyya was also very helpful in Darjeeling.
Baba mandir and Sky walk were the best places to visit.
Prayag's 10 days trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling
Recently (Dec'19) we visited Sikkim for our honeymoon through Tourepedia tour services via Travel Triangle. Before starting with the trip details, I would like to thank Mr. Rajat,m Sharma, Mr. Mehul and the entire team of Tourepedia who made the entire trip an amazing start to our lifetime journey.
Now Starting with the tour, our journey was divided into four places spread across West Bengal (Darjeeling) and Sikkim ( Pelling, Lachung and Gangtok)
Bagdogra - Darjeeling ::
We took a flight from Mumbai to Bagdogra where our cab was already waiting for us to our mesmerizing journey of our first trip to North East. It was a 2 and half hour journey from Bagdogra to Darjeeling. Upon our arrival at Darjeeling, the hotel we were accomodated was Dekeling Resort Darjeeling. The Hotel staff ensured that all the basic amenities were kept ready before we reach the hotel. We received a very warm welcome by the hotel staff, our stay at this hotel was really amazing. we did not have anything for the rest of the day. So we relaxed at the hotel for the day. Please click the below link to see a detailed review

On day two of our stay at Darjeeling, we visited Tiger Hill and saw the Sun
Rise over Mt. Kanchenjunga. We also visited Ghoom Monastery & Batasia Loop, a quirky Toy Train railway track that spirals around the Gorkha War
While returning to the Hotel, we also visited Japanese Temple, Peace Pagoda and Himalayan Mountaineering Institute, the largest high altitude zoo in India --
PNZ Zoological Park. If you do visit this place, please do not forget to do Indoor rock climbing (if you like it) the main attraction of this zoo is the Red Panda.
We would specially like to thank few of the Hotel staff who made our stay amazing, but not limited to only these employees.
Housekeeping :: Dipen
F&B :: Alex (Chef) , Sushmika and Sushant.
Reception :: Aditi and Sandeep.
Darjeeling - Pelling ::
Post our check out at Hotel, we started our journey towards Pelling. It was a 3 hour journey. We were provided accommodation at Magpie Chestnut Retreat. Please click below link to see my detailed review

It was already dark by the time we reached the Hotel ( it gets dark by around 5 PM in North East region, so please plan your journey accordingly) .The stay was okay, as there were minor Hiccups. Though the staff was helpful, the services and facilities provided were not upto the mark.
There were issues with the food, the Heater in the room which added to our thoughts to change our stay. These issues were not completely resolved, but definitely were minimized to an extent. All the credit goes to Mr. Mehul here. Thank you
Our 4th day started with the divine sunrise as the Snow clad Mountain peaks turned
orange-yellow when sun rays fall onto these, the view which was available straight from our Hotel Room. We visited the Kanchenjunga waterfall, the Pemayangtse Monastery, Rabdentse ruins. There was even a planned visited to Helipad, the rock garden and the khecheopalri lake. However, thanks to the quick observation of our driver, Pema, who by the time knew our taste buds. He understood that we might not be interested in these things and instead made us visit Sky Walk Pelling Sikkim which is the only Glass Sky Walk in India as of Dec, 2019 ( to the best of my knowledge). The view from this sky walk is amazing. You may also like to visit the Buddha temple and statue which also has a spectacular view from the top.
Pelling - Gangtok ::
Post check out from the hotel, we headed towards Gangtok through Ravangla, which was the only sightseeing on our enroute to Gangtok. However, again, as I earlier mentioned, thanks to Pema our driver, he made us visit Chardham (wherein you will be able to do a mini yatra to Chardham and also be able to have the darhsan of 12 Jyotirlinga's). Ofcourse, we'd paid him an extra 2.5K for this journey. But it was worth a trip. Our overnight stay was at The Lindsay Cheu Den
Kingston as we'd to leave for Lachung the next day.
Gangtok - Lachung ::
After breakfast, we proceeded to Lachung. The route meanders through small villages with
valleys up to forest grove of Kabi Langchuk. Also we visited seven sister waterfall , Naga
waterfall. We reached the Hotel by afternoon. We were welcomed with hot cup of tea. The manager Mr. Santu is very courteous and makes sure that we don't find any issues during our stay and also that all the requests are taken care of. This hotel, I must say was best of our stay in our entire journey in Sikkim. It's not just because of the service and facilities provided. But because of the home made food that was prepared by the in-house catering staff. Mr. Manteswar , the chef, and his team, made every effort in letting us feel that we're having food at our home, rather than having it at the hotel. Kudos to the team for the effort. For my detailed review, please click the below link.
We were supposed to visit Yumthang Valley the next day. However, due to the weather we were restricted to Snow point, which is also a good place to step by. Please click the below link to see my detailed review

We headed back to the Hotel, where we had our lunch post which we checked out to reach back to Gangtok.
We reached Gangtok by evening and were now waiting eagerly for our visit to Nathula Pass in hope that our Permits were issued and this time weather won't betray us, like it did in Yumthang.
The next day, we woke up to the refreshing smell of hills and had a filling breakfast
before proceeding for the day’s sightseeing tour as we were really happy to know that our permits were ready and that there was no problem with respect to the visit for Nathula. We Set off on our excursion to Tsomgo Lake near
Gangtok. It known for changing colours, the Tsomgo Lake is among the most visited tourist
attraction in Gangtok. Further, visited the famous Baba Mandir built in fond memory of Late Major
Baba Harbhajan Singh. The show stopper for the day was Nathula. Nathula is a mountain pass in the Himalayas in East Sikkim district. It connects the Indian state of Sikkim with China's Tibet Autonomous Region. The pass, at 14,140 ft above mean sea level, forms a part of an offshoot of the ancient Silk Road. Nathu means "listening ears" and La means "pass" in Tibetan. On the Indian side, the pass is 54 km east of Gangtok, the capital of Sikkim. Only citizens of India can visit the pass, and then only after obtaining a permit in Gangtok.
We headed back to our hotel to end this tiring day.
The next day was a leisure day for us as we'd kept this day as a buffer in case of any miss happening. Fortunately, nothing sort of that happened and we spent our day roaming at the MG street, buying souvenirs for our loved one's etc.
The next day was our last day in Sikkim as we'd our returning flight to Mumbai.
Barring few minor Hiccups
1) In Darjeeling, as the car which was supposed to take us to Pelling had a breakdown and we had to stay back at the hotel for couple of hours.
2) In Pelling during our stay at the Hotel.
Things like this do happen, when you're on a long trip.
However, Thank you Travel Triangle (Ms. Shivani Sharma) , Thank you Tourepedia (Mr. Rajat Sharma and Mr. Mehul) and the entire team who worked hard to make sure that this becomes our memorable journey all together.

Ravindra's 8 days trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling
All drivers except Nathula Trip we're good, cordial and focused. Pearl Retreat was best hotel and better hospitality. Though food taste was not at par as we want but they were always ready to modify the served as per our need and requirement and over all very good. All hotels provided were very near to city. The Hotel "Sonamchen" location at pelling and view of Kanchenjunga was a dream come true, but food served was mostly cold and room services are poor. The heater provided at Sonamchen were of bad quality and were unable to serve the purpose. The food quality was best at hotel New golden Mondala but room heaters were mostly not working, needs improvement. The location of hotel at Darjeeling was little bit inside and could not provide better view of city and surroundings.
The tour operator provided was little bit inexperienced , because of that some confusions and misunderstanding were caused but nature wise very good, always ready to accept her mistake and very cordial. I am sure she will improve with passage of time.
The Kanchunjunga view from Hotel Sonamchen, Char Dham, Buddha Park Ravangla, Nathula visit, Himaliyan Zoo, HMI, Tea garden
and places visited at pelling were best of our tour.
Chetana's 6 days trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling
We travelled to Sikkim via ISIKKIM travels on 19th December 2019. Our itinerary included Gangtok, Lachen and Lachung. Since some places in North Sikkim might be inaccessible due to snowfall in Winter, I had asked the executive beforehand itself what would be the plan if some of the places get missed due to the snowfall. She assured me that there won't be a miss 99% and they will arrange alternate trips to Pelling or provide alternate sightseeing spots in North Sikkim itself if the situation arises.
We reached Gangtok on 19th. Our problems started the moment we stepped into the hotel. Our name was not found in the hotel reservation list and we had to wait for more than half an hour and call isikkim tour coordinator (TShering) to get the issue resolved. This problem happened again in Lachung again and our name wasn't in the list.
We were supposed to visit Gurudongmar lake near Lachen on the 21st of December - but the lake was closed. ISikkim was aware of this even before the commencement of the trip but they did not have the basic courtesy to inform us beforehand and provide alternative options. They kept us hanging till the last moment. We found out from locals that the lake is closed and we had to request ISikkim to provide alternate arrangements. They only added one place Mt.Katau and charged us extra for that. One whole day was wasted for us because of this.
Yumthang valley was also mostly closed and we were not taken to the top even in Mt.Katau. So, on the way back, we asked the driver to take us to a good Monastery in Gangtok atleast since most of the places were not accessible. He refused to do so.
Also, the drivers provided to us arrived late by 1-1.5 hours every single day and we were always asked to be ready earlier. It was absolutely unprofessional of them.
I didn't feel that ISikkim travels did a good job of handling the trip well end-to-end. I wouldn't opt for them if I travel again.
