Hi debarghyajee,

Welcome to IM.

First of all I would suggest you not to trek Sandakphu in June.

Reason being June would experience full fledged rainfall,so it would be very difficult(if not impossible) to trek.

Also you would miss the awesome views in the trail because of bad whether.

You can have a word with Jiban chetri(9733044512) of Maneybhanjan for more details.
Only rules that matters are:What a man can do and what a man can not !!!!

Hi debarghyajee,

No need of addressing anyone with sir in this forum.

There are no holiday homes/hotels in the trail.They are all DGHC trekkers hut and some private ones too.

For advance booking of DGHC you can contact :

DGHC Tourism Desk in ITDC Office
4 Shakespeare Sarani, Kolkata - 700071
Phone: (033)2282-1715, 2282-5813, 2282-1402
Note: Former DGHC is now known as GTA - Gorkhaland Territorial Administration

No cars runs in the trail,but only landrovers.I am not sure about the rates of land rover since we have not availed any.

You can get in touch with Mr.Jiban Chetri(Masterjee) of Maneybhanjan for more details about landrovers.

I have already shared his contact in my last post.

Njp to sandakphu car is 1600 or above.In Sandakphu there are two DGHC guest house and other private accomodation. Not sure about Manebhanjan.
On a defensive side I can give a suggestion - there is a place called Tumling in Maneybhanjan-Sandakphu route. It has less height,less distance,variety of accomodation with view of Kanchanjungha.

Hi debarghyajee,

Here is the itinerary to Sanadkphu,might be helpful for you.
Day-I : Reach NJP.Hire a cab to Maneybhanjan.Overnight at Maney.
Day-II: Hire a landrover for Sandakphu.Because no cabs hired from NJP would not go to Maney-Sandakphu trail.It will take around 6/7hours to reach Tonglu/Tumling.Tumling is just a downhill of Tonglu.Stay overnight at Tonglu/Tumling.
Day-III: Drive to Sandakphu.It will take also around 6/7hours via Kalipokhri and Bhikeybhanjan.

As I do not know the total number of days of your planned trip,I could not make out the return trip from Sandakphu to NJP.

Note:- As there are children as well as some senior persons in your group take the landrover from Maney for sure.You can call Masterjee(Jiban chetri)[as life1style1 said in earliar post] for all the details.

You can also go through my TR for your reference.Here is the link,

Wish you a very very Happy Journey..!!!!
Thanks & Regards,
Anirban Roy

debarghyajee,

You really have many days in hand considering that you would be availing Landrovers from Maneybhanjan.

There are no hotels but only trekkers hut.

They can be booked from DGHC office in Shakespeare Sarani,Kolkata.

Normal cars do not run above Maneybhanjan,only LandRovers.Can be booked from Maneybhanjan itself.

Since you have aged person/children with you I would advice you to make prior booking from Shakespeare Sarani office.

Also Sandakphu can be reached from Maneybhanjan in the same day by Landrover.

Speak to Mr. Jiban Chetri of Maneybhanjan,he can arrange for Giude/LandRovers.

debarghyajee,

life1style1 answered you perfectly.

As you have elders and kids with you, know about their fitness - if you have to start form Kolkata on 4th and return Kolkata on 11th, you have yau have 4 days for mane-Sandakphu-mane trip by land rover. Tarvelling by land rovers there not at all charming.

Hope June 1st week will not be rainy.

Hi,

Going through your queries i just want to express a few things.

1) I am a bit skeptical about visiting SANDAKPHU during JUNE. you will definitely encounter fogs & clouds ( if not rain). Getting a clear view of mountains is low percentage shot.

2) You have great Hotel Facility at Sandakphu with Room Heater, Hot water and all kinds of modern facilities.
1) Hotel Sherpa Challet(09933488159)
2) Hotel Nama Buddhha


3)Considering the number of your groups i think you have to book two Land Rovers as they are going to carry only 5 each.

4) I may provide you with one itinerary if surely you are going there during June.

Cheers
Saikat
