Last year, life before pandemic I had planned Sandakphu trek with India hikes. As I had been to Bagdogra thrice already, I knew it was a safe place for me to travel solo. So I planned a solo travel before I started with thr trek.
Bagdogra -> Lepchajagat -> Lamhatta -> Kalimpong -> Jaubhari (base village for SP trek)
why didn't I chose to go Darjeeling instead?
Honestly I wanted to, but also needed seclusion which these places offered 😌😌
3-4 days were enough to relax and explore places around before the strenuous trek began.
