The day early as we headed out to Pelling that morning which was to take almost 6 hours. The roads in between were risky enough in spite of being wide as landslides are common in these areas and a long part of our route was under construction. The road we were heading through was common for the ones who were headed to Gangtok and Darjeeling. And after a certain we finally entered the road that is only end at Pelling.
Pelling is less crowded. As there no market, not even a small one, you cannot do much in evening. Just a few local stores were there run by mostly local women. Men of the houses are mostly out for works in days as women run these stores, set up in the front yard of their houses. These stores contain clothes, Sikkimese show pieces that might attract the tourists, sandals and almost everything.
After settling down luggages at hotel, we roamed at the quite paths. Tourists from various parts of India was there, some from Kerala, some from UP and most of them happened to be Bangalees. Even a group from Bangladesh was also there in our hotel. They are to visit the whole of Sikkim including Eastern side of it with Gangtok and Pelling. Some were to go to Darjeeling, Kalimpong and Kurseong.
While in a all-in-one store a group of tourists came searching for Hukkah stands. The owner did not have one and told that none of these stores won't have it. And finally showed them the way towards a nearby Hukkah parlour which happened to be the only one. While alcohol is kept in almost every hotel, Hukkah happened to be a less catch here.
