Pack your bags and head to the beautiful landscapes and lush natural environs of the Himalayan kingdom of Sikkim. View the snow-capped Kanchenjunga range, pay your reverences at the Buddhist monasteries here, go shopping at MG road and trek along the natural scenic surroundings of Sikkim. The best time to visit this state is during the summer season from May to June as the weather generally stays pleasant and cool and is perfect for sightseeing tours. If you are planning on traveling to this Northeastern kingdom and are wondering how to reach Sikkim from Delhi, the following information can help you out.
Sikkim does not have its own airport and if you plan on taking a flight from Delhi, you will have to travel to the nearest airport, Bagdogra in North Bengal. This is about 124 kilometers from Gangtok and it will take you about 5 hours to travel from the airport to the city. You can also travel by the Helicopter service from Bagdogra to Gangtok.
If you are traveling by train from Delhi to Sikkim, you will have to travel to the nearest railway stations Siliguri and New Jalpaiguri. This is because Sikkim does not have its own station. You can easily get a cab or taxi from these stations to Gangtok and it generally costs around Rs 1500/-. You can also take a jeep to Gangtok on sharing basis that will cost you around Rs 120/- per person.
If you want to travel to this Northeastern Himalayan kingdom by road, there are regular buses you can travel by from Delhi to Sikkim run by the Sikkim Nationalized Transport. You can easily get a cab or shared taxi from the bus stop to Gangtok or any part of Sikkim.

Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingExcellent! It was a very good experience with Tharingsa Holidays with whom we got connected through Travel Triangle. With a group of 6 and the tour being planned only for 2 days and 2 nights, we had no clue regarding the connectivity and possible no. of explorations within the given time frame as we were first time travelers to Sikkim. Credit goes to Tharingsa Team especially Tour Co-coordinator Ms. Sushmita, who patiently listened, understood and accordingly planned the itinerary to our expectations. Receiving from Bagdogra airport, river rafting in Kalimpong, sightseeing in Tsango Lake, Baba Mandir, Nathula on the next day till dropping back on Airport was so well co-ordinated and executed that we didn't give a second thought for a single moment. Honestly this was one of the reason that our group could enjoy to the maximum in the short duration. Would like to suggest to the first time travelers or even to frequent travel freaks, if you want to enjoy to the fullest and keep aside headaches for travelling arrangements. Go for Tharingsha Holidays! Thank you Travel Triangle! Keep up the good work ! :-)

Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingIn Gangtok Hotel Powring Guest House is very nice, rooms and bathrooms are very neat and clean, food is also good except complimentary breakfast. Staff of the Hotel are really nice. At Lachung, Katau Road House is outstanding. View from room is awesome, speechless. Staff of Katau Road House is better than Gangtok Hotel. Food taste, quantity and quality is very good. All the staff including manager is so polite. Car provided us its also good, Manasarovar kept their promised by providing Xylo and Innova as per our desire. Drivers are also very polite and their behaviour is also good. At the end of the tour we had drop at Bagdogra Airport, our flight timing was 5pm, we planned to start from Gangtok at 10:30am for airport but they forced us to leave at 8:35am. While we requested repeatedly that we have 5years old kid, they were giving excuse if election. Even driver threatened us to cancel the car if we won't get ready by 8:30am. There were no problem in Sikkim during election, tourists were went for sight seeing and all. Its a peaceful state. We reached at Airport at 1:20pm. After reaching at airport we get to know that car driver had pick up from Airport at 1:30pm to 2pm.

Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingHotel potala and palbheu we're not good because of bad service and room services....hotel Woodberry was good one. Snowfall at bhabha mandir
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingOverall it was fine.. this could have been an awesome trip, had i not wasted my time in visiting yumthang valley in lachung which is closed to visit for more than 2 months still the tour operator put that in my itenary. I would have scheduled some other location if would have been aware of this earlier. Baba Mandir and changu lake was the best thing to be visited.
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingHotel at Lachung was not good and infact hotel was changed which I realised at the time of checkout Because the reason is the name of the hotel is near about same My booked hotel was Delight Royal lachung Heritage And I was offered Delight Royal Lachung hotel. This hotel is very bad,the room was allotted to me was very narrow there were a partition with wooden ply. They were not giving room service .After argument and fight they give me bigger room but yet it was not so impressive. I have called Tour angle to tell about room condition then they replied that this property is little bit poor thats why he iwas not offering this hotel. But as i have selected this hotel I have to bare. It seems like I have selected this hotel that's why this was my fault there was no role of tour angle . And tour manager is very poor in folloup. Other hotel drivers all were good I suggest to travell agent that atleast inform to your customer about time schedule for travell. As last day of itinerary was not covered by me because I have to catch my flight.If I know the timing I was able to do that places also.
