Tripoto
23rd Nov 2014

It was month of November, we four school friends planned to visit Sikkim. After long discussion over phone and facebook, we did a rough plan to cover north sikkim. We took train from Sealdah ( Darjeeling Mail) and next day morning we reached New Jailpaiguri. There we had our breakfast and booked one shared Sumo to Gangtok and reached around 4 pm. We didn't book any hotel so we searched few and found one suitable hotel, Babu Mosai (owner may be fan of Rajesh Khanna ) at M.G Marg. As it was month of November, so we got a 3 bed; room in reasonable price.
