Raipur to Balrampur
After spending 3 days in Raipur, i restarted my journey to sikkim. For today i didn't plan any destination. Just decided to ride till sunset. After a long ride of around 12 hrs i reached a small town named Balrampur im Chhattisgarh. Rented a room in a small lpdge and took some rest. Stay- Adarsh lodge 350/- per day.
Balrampur to Darbhanga
Last day i planned to ride till sunset and tried to cover as much distance as possible but i realized that it was a mistake. After sunset on my way i didn't found any town or city, even a single village. I rode through forest for at least more than an hour in the dark. I was a bit scared, road conditions were also bad. So learning from my past mistake today i planned to ride till Darbhanga(Bihar). Not much to tell, started my ride early morning, did not took many breaks, reached Darbhanga at around 7 pm. Stayed at Hotel Rama residency 600/- per day
Darbhanga to Gangtok
Another 465 kms were left for Gangtok. So i planned to reach there before dark. I started early, didn't take much break. Road conditions in Bihar were excellent, mainly highways. I crossed Bihar, West Bengal md reached Sikkim border within 2 pm. Gangtok was another 100 kms and these 100 kms were going to be real challenge. The mountains, curves, hair pin bends, steeps started. I had some difficulties with by 125 cc bike but somehow i reached Gangtok at 5pm.
I was little bit tired today. Last 3 4 hrs were too much challenging but still the excitement of riding on the mountains after a long 17 months was amazing. Last i visited Himalayas was when i did my ladakh tour on bike.
After reaching Gangtok, immediately searched for a hotel, as i was too much exhausted, completed dinner and rested as next day going to be another challenging one.
Stay at- Hotel pratigya residency
1200/- per day
