Day 1: From Bagdogra airport, we took a Pre-Paid Taxi to Darjeeling (4 Hours journey). We spent the evening walking at the mall road.
Day 2: After breakfast, we took a taxi till "Manyebhanjang" from where Land Rovers are available which takes you to Sandakphu. Its a 33 Kms journey from "Maneybhanjang" to "Sandakphu" which takes about 5 to 6 Hours as the roads are not good.
After reaching Sandakphu (11941 Ft) , we were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the mighty Kanchenjunga which was not visible since the last two days because of the dense clouds.
There are just a couple of lodges in Sandakphu with the minimum amenities. And if you are looking for a luxurious stay then you have come to the wrong place.
The temperature dipped suddenly after the sunset and we had to go to bed after having dinner at 7PM. There's nothing much to do there after sunset as there is no electricity except the few solar powered lights.
Day 3: Our 3rd Day started with a beautiful sunrise at 5 AM. That was one of the best sunrise that I have ever Experienced. Four of the five highest peaks in the world, "Mt. Everest" , "Kangchenjunga" , "Lhotse" and "Makalu" can be seen from its summit. From Sandakphu the best view of the mountain Kangchenjunga is possible, which is known as the Sleeping Buddha or the Sleeping Shiva.
After Breakfast we left for "Maneybhanjang", then to Darjeeling. From Darjeeling we took a taxi to Gangtok, and reached Gangtok by night.
