      Overall the trip was good and memorable. I felt arrangements could have been better in few places. - Constantly I felt lack of co-ordination b/w trip anthem and local cab vendors - Cabs services and driver friendliness in Bengal were not up to mark - Darjeeling hotel was rodent infested, avoid booking for others Relished the experience in Sikkim thoroughly

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      The hotel White Yak at Darjeeling was good and very near to the mall road. The breakfast served was buffet and was really nice. The room was somewhat less spacious and there wasn't any view from the room. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The problem was that the hotel was situated at a very high slope. No old person can be expected to reach the hotel. Even cars weren't able to reach the hotel and someone had to be sent down for luggage. It was really scary to see some cars attempt the slope. The hotel Helia at Gangtok was far from the MG road and I was told that it is at 5 minutes from hotel, which in reality takes around 15 to 20 minutes. If you are tired and back from a sight seeing trip, then forget going for a stroll at MG road. It is a long walk. Also the road to the hotel was always empty in the night. It was scary to return. The staff at Helia was really helpful and offered us all help they could. They gave us umbrella and told us not to buy one. The room was having a great view and we loved the spacious and large room.

      Overall the trip was well organized and executed. Just felt the hotel rating was not appropriate. Hotel in Darjeeling was sold as 3star but I feel it was hardly 2 star. And knowing my requirement i.e. traveling with a 2 kids (1 infant) better accessible hotel should have being recommend. Hotel in Darjeeling was on step height where no taxi driver was ready to go so was very difficult to move in and out of hotel. Tsongo Lake
