We returned back to MG Marg and binged at a Nepali restaurant, before roaming around the markets to shop! It was our last day and it seemed that we were all trying to make the most of it. That night, we had dinner at the Traveler’s Cafe in Tagalong, with Manisha Di & Bhavana – the lovely women running the hostel.
(If you happen to be in Gangtok, you gotta visit this place for their freshly baked cakes and the delicious chicken burger – not kidding!)
It was kinda’ time say ‘goodbye’ to all, as the next morning we had to leave and our flights were at different times. The week passed by the wink of an eye, and it was beautiful to have met such amazing people on the roads!
Day 8 – Heading Back To Bagdogra
As all good things come to an end, so did this! On our way back to Bagdogra, Pramit, Deepa & I kept talking about the last couple of days, looking back and cherishing the moments we lived together in North Sikkim.
All thanks to The Doi Host – for curating such an amazing itinerary, managing the logistics in some of the remotest parts of the country by collaborating with the locals and taking us closer to the Himalayas! Otherwise, probably we wouldn’t have had the chance to experience the goodness of the local culture, know about the local tales, make momos and drink thongba, and visit the offbeat places.
