The journey through silk route itself is a beautiful experience. It offers great views as you move along, more than any specific places to see. For 5d/4n you can plan as follows:
D1: NJP to Icche Gaon. Overnight stay at Icche Gaon
D2: Icche Gaon to Zuluk. Overnight stay at Zuluk
D3: Zuluk to Nathang. Overnight stay at Nathang
D4: Nathang to Gangtok. Overnight stay at Gangtok
D5: Gangtok to NJP Now as you will be travelling in Feb, there are few catches, as the roads from Nathang onwards may be blocked/closed due to snow. Also there is an issue of getting permit near the Nathula pass. If you are unable to proceed towards Gangtok, you can modify the itinerary as below. D4: Nathang to Aritar. Overnight stay at Aritar
D5: Aritar to NJP Here are few places to see along Silk Route:
Thambi view point near Zuluk
Old Baba Mandir
Changu Lake (if you proceed towards Gangtok) Places to stay:
In silk route don't expect to get high end hotels. Accommodation is mostly in homestays, specially in Zuluk and Nathang you will only get homestays. At Zuluk try to get rooms at Dilmaya retreat. They have decent rooms and offer good view.
In Nathang, ask for a guy called Amrit. He is a local there and drives tourist cars along the silk route. He is providing accommodation recently, and his place is one of the best you will get in Nathang, with modern amenities.
