Tinjure is a small trek up from Fambong Lho Wildlife sanctuary which is 45 minutes from Gangtok. The magic of this trek happens once the sun sets and we see the city of lights below and then when the sun rises over the magical snow-capped Himalayan peaks.
We took a taxi from MG Marg to the sanctuary for 300/-. Once at the base you need to get a permit which costs 55/- a day per person.
Armed with our backpacks which consisted of our sleeping bags, warm clothes, packets of chips, bread, biscuits and a lighter we started climbing up the hill by 3.30 in the noon. (better if you start by 2)
It is a leisure walk as the whole route is laid out for you with a chiseled stone pathway. We encountered numerous amazing trees, some as tall as the Eiffel tower, some as wide as an elephant, some forming a cave which lets us walk through its roots, all while catching glimpse of the snow-capped peaks now and then.
