And the day of bidding a goodbye finally arrived. The Homestay owner greeted us with a white holy scurf, which is perhaps the most precious thing we received from Lingthem, apart from the views.
How to reach Dzongu:
1. The shortest route is NJP (New Jalpaiguri Junction Railway Station)-Singtam-Mangan-Dzongu.
2. Alternative route can be NJP-Gangtok-Mangan-Dzongu.
3. It takes around 7-8 hours to reach Dzongu. So it is advisable to the travellers, to start the journey by 9.30-10AM, if one wishes to reach there in one day. Otherwise one can jolly well stay a night at Gangtok and resume the remaining journey on the next day.
4. It is also advisable to pre-book a car for reaching there. Or one can go upto Singtam/Gangtok in a share taxi from SNT( Sikkim National Transport) taxi stand, and then book a car to Dzongu.
