I believe nothing gives more happiness than being able to run away from our monotonous work life and live for a few days in majestic nature. If you are planning your next getaway for 3-4 days, you have come to the right place. Just book your tickets to Gangtok,Sikkim!
Day 1: Now it has become easier to reach to Gangtok as Sikkim got its first airport in Pakyong last year. Pakyong is about 40kms from Gangtok. You can reach Gangtok from Pakyong airport by local taxi or shared jeep. Book your hotels near M.G Marg, the main market of Gangtok and one of the main attractions of Gangtok. You will find great hotels around Rs 1500-2000. Take a stroll in M.G Marg and enjoy the diverse market with its happening atmosphere. You will definitely find everything you need and if you have bargaining skills(which most Indians have), you can have at unbelievable price! Plan for the next day trip to Lachung(8500 ft above sea level),a small village in North Sikkim. You can ask the hotel manager or local taxi drivers for the trip arrangement. The whole trip from Gangtok to Lachung and back(including fooding and lodging) in a shared vehicle will cost around Rs 2500.
