Darjeeling Tour Packages:
Darjeeling Tour Packages: Every Indian state is best in its own way, but Sikkim has a lot of qualities that make it different from other states. It is an unique combination of peace, prosperity, diversity, environmental protection and calm.
If you are planning to visit Sikkim , The nearest airport is Bagdogra near Siliguri, which is at a distance of 124 km from Gangtok. The nearest rail is at New Jalpaiguri, which is nearly 148 km from Gangtok.
Main places for sightseeing in Sikkim are : Gangtok, Pelling , Lachung-Lachen,Namchi, the huge Teesta river.. Darjeeling and Kalimpong are in West Bengal but they should also be covered in this trip ideally.
Lachung and Lachen are the most beautiful places in Sikkim but the weather and route to these places is extreme. At times the road is blocked due to bad weather and more over it takes lot of time to reach there. With kids I feel it is advisable to skip these 2 spots. You can cover Darjelling and Kalimpong instead of that.
If you are planning a week long tour you can go ahead with 2 nights at Darjeeling, 3 nights at Gangtok , 2 nights & 1 night at Kalimpong.
