It suppose to be my first trip to North east states and the first one as a solo for 9 days. I decided to explore Sikkim in my first go. I did some googling and talk to few persons who have been there, after which i have a brief idea that Sikkim is rich in its heritage and tourism culture but do not have a great infrastructure. I started my journey from Delhi on a Saturday to bagdogra. I reach bagdogra by 2:15pm. From there you have plenty if options to reach Gangtok. The best but the costly way is to hire a 2500 rs private cab to Gangtok which is 120kms from there. Being a solo and Kanjoos traveler i cant spend this amount, so get a hitchhiking till Siliguri, you can also get a local bus to Siliguri (13kms from airport) if you come straight out of airport for about 500-600 mtrs, costing 15 ra. From Siliguri you can take a Sikkim national transport (SNT) bus to gangtok taking 4 hours and 150rs. From SNT bus depot you can also get a cheap shared cab. I was in Gangtok around 8:30 pm and it was raining. I dnt have a prior booking of hotel, so i checked few hotels but they were 600-700 rs for a night. So i asked few locals for a cheaper stay, they guided me to a Janta bhawan (dormitory), 500 mtrs to SNT depo at Gangtok. It is a public dormitory, for outsiders they provide 150 rs per bed. I dnt see any girl there, so it is a fully Male dormitory. I stayed there and ate outside.
