It is one of those experiences that I really wanted to share as early as possible with everybody however my laziness kept me from actually doing it. It took me while to write this travelogue mostly because I had been procrastinating it till now but, no more. Many a times coming back from a trip we have this unsatisfactory feeling of not being able to stay a bit more and see a little more of the place or places we traveled to. At-least it happens to me a lot, if not every time I come back from a place that left me spell-bounded.
My trip to Sikkim along with a couple of friends was a different one, oddly enough this time I came back home with a sense of satisfaction even though I missed a few places from my itinerary. I will not say I was able to travel to all the best places there because it's practically impossible to do so in a span of 10 days, but yes it was good enough to satiate my appetite for that time. So much so that I felt it would be unfair not to share this itinerary with rest of the keen travelers looking forward to a trip to North Sikkim. I would stick to the northern regions even though there's so much more to see & do in the state of Sikkim, because those were the areas that we considered to be the best use of our 10 days vacation. I will be sharing day by day itinerary along with some memories(pictures) from my trip and any information which is worth knowing about the place to make your trip easier or provide some alternatives.
The best way to travel within Sikkim would be to book a cab preferably take a package from one of the vendor there for the whole trip. You will be able to negotiate good prices if you book package for multiple days and places within the state and will save up on considerable amount when you're travelling in a group. Although Sikkim is beautiful all the year round yet a good time to visit would be somewhere between January to May.
Alright let's get down to business :
