After 4hours drive from Siliguri, as soon as we reached Gangtok, the pleasant weather and its serenity welcomed us. We booked our hotel at Khnagsar Villa via Makemytrip.com which is situated at few kilometer far from MG Marg Gangtok.
How to choose your stay at Gangtok:
Gangtok is like any other cities with all the facilities available like Hotels, Vehicles and Well constructed roads. When you decide for girls trip pre book your hotels as it will save your trip time plus less chance of being cheated. We generally prefer booking through OYO app for hotels as you get best hotels at best price. As the seasoned we backpacked was the peak season so all the rooms were booked through OYO. Hence we tried the alternate option of Makemy trip and it didn’t disappoint us.
Time for being Shopaholic and Foodie:
As our hotel was situated near MG Marg, we decided to take a evening stroll at MG Marg, we headed by walk as the Gangtok has well built footpaths and foot bridges which allows you to enjoy your stroll.
MG Marg is a traffic free shopping destination and perfect place to spend your evening with your family and friends. If you are a fengsui lover here you get many such items at best rate. Also if you love Tibetan and Chinese food this is the right spot for you.
In short, if you are an Shopaholic and Foodie MG Marg is the destination for you.
After the evening stroll at MG Marg we called it a day for our Day 1 trip and curled up in the cozy blanket of the Hotel and so that we can gear up for our next day.
