Two couples. We were excited to travel the north-east India. Thus we finalized our travel month as march and decided Sikkim-Darjeeling as our destination. We booked the flight tickets well in advance to save expenses on travelling. We wanted a budget trip. We got many quotes from travel agents whom we contacted through mail and whatsapp. We got contacts from our friend circle who had travel there earlier for local sightseeing and hotels. Finally, the affordable one was Vineet travels from Siliguri. The reason we selected this specific travels agent,because while we were discussing about the itinerary, he was flexible enough to include all our request and he had good knowledge of that area.
We decided 6 days and 5 nights trip from Mumbai.
Got tickets in 7k for our two way journey for single person. And got local sightseeing and stay package in 10k per head. So, our total costing per head was going around 20k including food. And 80k for four of us. Overall it was a good deal.
As our travel included places of snow region, we needed clothes for that. We shopped for gloves, jackets, shoes and goggles.
So our itinerary was,
1. Tsomgo Lake & Baba Mandir
2. Nathula pass
4. Yumthang Valley Excursion-Zero point
6. Tiger hill
7. Darjeeling local sightseeing
