Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingIt was a good trip for me . Miss Moumita co-ordinated everything very well.. the hotel ( Udaan Woodberry) at Gangtok was too good.. Snowfall at lachung
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingI was travelling to Gangtok and Darjeeling for the first time and Trip to Nature made sure that I enjoy every bit of it. Except few driver behavior concerns, the overall trip was great. I would like to specially call out Rakesh from Trip to Nature team for making my trip seamless and hassle free. Great job guys and looking forward to plan very soon with Trip To Nature team. Thanks!
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingOver all service was very good and satisfactory. Food service was not upto the mark and some improvement is required. hotel and it's service provided at Siligiri was not good. over all experience is good. Best memory of our trip is Tsmogo lake and snow fall for which we was charged extra. The said place was in our tour plan but they charged us extra and tbey added two more places in our tour. over all very good experience and I have suggested my one relative to book the tour through this app.
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingGood job done by trevelangel Our trip is wonderful .Trip adviger rajat is very help full all time he is tuch with us and provided best inova for us hotel staff is also very help full .We enjoy the trip very much .
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingEnjoyed the trip. Had to follow up for drivers a bit. Otherwise agent was helpful. Snow snow snow.
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingEnjoyed the trip.Tiurpedia gave a good experience and safe journey throughout the trip.Any inconvenience and issues were solved in the spot in a single call to tourpedia coordinator Mr.Aizaz. One thing that can be improved by tourpedia is that if a trip is getting cancelled due to snowfall in affected areas they have to compensate by providing trip to some other places.Because we are paying for the trip already.It was thought to ask again and again the coordinator to arrange for the alternate sight seeing.But he managed to arrange on the route chorten monastery only. Also cab should be provided for pick up and drop facility from market to hotel.Becayse first day of our trip is pickup and drop from airport to hotel and then it is mentioned as leisure stay and roam in the local markets in the itenary.If we have to go to market from hotel to they have to provide cab services for the same.But tourpedia sticked to the itenary and did not provide cab services for local convenience.Anyway we are paying around 3800 per day for a cab which if we book through local taxi he will be with us throughout the day.But the taxis booked through travel triangle stick with the itenerary only and they are very much hesitant to pickup and drop to hotel. Because I spent additionally 2000 rupees for local travel.which is equal to taking taxi for 4000 a day that is normally available in the market, so why should I book through travel triangle? Another thing done drivers are charging extra if more waiting time is incurred they are asking for additional charges. Drivers assigned to Darjeeling trip was the worst.they were always claiming to windup the trip in afternoon itself. So please make these corrections to make the experience better. Driver Gyatsao for lachung trip was the best driver we have seen.Riding through the hills for around 6 hours is not an easy job.It takes lot of patience and driving skills.He was speaking nicely and supportive throughout the journey.He explained about all the local history and people during the trip and clarified all our queries well.Very happy to travel with him to lachung. He managed to drive safely even in unexpected snow fall areas while going to lachung.

Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingAwesome Sunrise at Tiger hill and sightseen from coming Darjeeling via Pasupati Market.
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingIt was my first trip to Sikkim and I didn’t imagine that it would become so memorable!! It is really true that – “Sikkim still carries way too much natural beauty to be explored” I never had thought about Sikkim visiting Sikkim before I signed up in Travel Triangle & started talking to Mr Indrajeet about the beauty of Sikkim & details of locations to visit. He was very humble in asking me about my requirement and designed the trip as per my convenience. I booked an 8-days trip with Yes tourism that covered: Gangtok (entire city tour) Baba Mandir Nathula (Please inform to travel guys in advance) Lachung Yumthang Valley (Early morning! You will love the Yaks and the natural springs here) Ravangla (Saibaba mandir & beautiful monasteries) Darjeeling (Don’t miss the tea estate, Japanese temple & tiger hill in early morning at 4) Appreciated the proactive informative attitude from Yes Tourism for letting us know all the minute details well in advance. Note to travelers: Kindly keep 4 PP size photos/ per person & 4 xerox of Id proof with you handy. Please be ready for really extensive travel because almost all the major points are located at quite a distant locations; but the entire travel experience is worth the effort! Cheers!
