Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingWe had an awesome trip. But due to heavy snowfall we missed many important points but i don't mind the Services and facilities were excellent. Thankyou Travel Triangle for making our trip awesome. Visiting Tsomgo lake was something i can't forget in my life we were literally shaking due to the cold weather but still we stood there and enjoyed everything with loads of pictures.
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingBased on their very positive reviews, we booked a 5-day Sikkim-Darjeeling tour with Tourepedia. I found the service and response of this travel agency to be excellent. My questions were promptly responded to, and everyone showed up when they were supposed to. They (Asran khan) were constantly in touch with me. Overall good value for money. The only thing that we missed in this trip is Baba Mandir and Nathula pass. But again nobody can do anything in that (snowfall!!!). We really enjoyed our stay in Darjeeling. Easily 5-stars. Thank you Travel Triangle and Tourepedia.

Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingI am genuinely happy with Travel Triangles work...special kudos to Nishant and Deepa
Sikkim-GangtokThey are very cooperative and professional with 24 hour round the clock assistance.
Trip to BhutanExcept the driver Mr.Lalo at Gangtok and Sikkim Tour coordinator Mr.Giri everything was very good. The Sikkim tour coordinator should learn how to listen. He needs lots of training in tourism. He thinks himself very great. The best memories are Bhutan trip. The driver Rajen is an excellent human.
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingTrip didn't go well as planned. only time spent in travelling , visiting places couldn't happen. day 1 namchi sightseeing - driver didn't knew the route and we reached namchi at 4 pm. all places are closed by 5/6. day 2 local sight seeing was some what better. day 3 was changu lake which got cancelled due to weather. it was replaced by local sight seeing. there was Baba Mandir planned but that is closed over two weeks but still it was part of itinerary. day 4 back to airport day, we lost almost 2 hours on way because of some loan issue on the car issued. luckily my flight was delayed else could have missed it, we almost started at morning 8:30 from Gangtok towards Bagdogra. Paying 17.5k rupees for local sight seeing and transfer doesn't look reasonable. overally my trip I would rate 1.5/5. nothing to share
