Sikkim, the second smallest state of the country is a paradise in its true sense. I along with a good friend Urmi (_gorgeously_flawed_) decided to spend 8 days in this beautiful state covering mostly North, East and West Sikkim.
We took an late night flight from Mumbai and reached Bagdogra Early Morning. To reach Gangtok, you need to hire a private taxi ( Rs 2.5k ( non AC) - 3.5k ( AC)). You can also use the Wizzride Website (https://www.wizzride.com) to book your seat in a shared taxi that directly drops you to Gangtok however they have limited seats at limited time slots. Else take an auto to Siliguri and take a shared cab to Gangtok from there. We had booked a room in Summit Denzong which offers Picturesque View of the Entire City.
After Freshening up, we decided to explore the Gangtok City. The best thing about the city is MG Marg which is a one stop solution to all your needs. It has a lot of branded stores, pubs, cafes, travel agents, etc and is completely pedestrian friendly.
