Arpit's 8 days trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

It was managed very good overall. We got timely updates regarding our each day travel plan, Trip Coordinator Bharat Ji used to check with us daily on how the trip was going. From Hotel check-ins to Cab arrangement everything was smooth. Most of the drivers which came were quite good with proper know
ledge of the destination, especially the driver Karma, he to very good care of us for our North sikkim part of journey. However due to weather conditions we could not go to some of the destinations we planned. We missed out on Gurudongmar lake visit, Yumthang valley, Zero Point and Gangtok Local Sightseeing as well. Considering that I feel Tourepdia could have been a bit more proactive to provide us some alternate options and could have helped us to cover as much as possible getting the necessary arrangements done without extra pay. Still no regrets what so ever. It was great trip overall.
