We (me, my wife & 11 yrs old daugher) are planning to visit west sikkim in Oct,15.

I have planned the trip as:

Day1: Board train at HWH.
Day2: Reach NJP. Travel to Kaluk nightstay at Ghonday Village Resort / Kanchan Valley Resort.
Day3: Sight-seeing in Kaluk and Rinchenpong. Proceed to Uttarey. Night stay at Hotel Sawden
Day4: After breakfast trek to Mainbus Waterfalls. After Lunch proceed to Pelling
Day5: Pelling Sight Seeing (including Yuksum)
Day6: Relax day
Day7 :Reach NJP and return.

Please suggest any changes. If i started the tour from Pelling then proceed to Uttarey and Kaluk is it possible.

Should I book the car for entire tour. I get a qoutation from Mr. Chunk -Panchak Tours (suggested by IMer) Rs. 3000/- per day for Bolero including everying.
Mr. Soumitra Sarkar (Kanchan Valley Resort) quote Rs. 1200/- per night .
Mr. Abinash Subba (Hotel Sawden) quote me Rs. 1500/- per night.

Are everything allright. Please suggest me

Looks ok. Ravangla and chardham part deliberately skipped, I guess. Ghonday will be better choice than Kanchen vally at kaluk. So also reliability of Mr Sarkar is debated here in IM. Rates seems to be ok.
Wish you all the best.

Can not suggest you much as I myself will be visiting west Sikkim for the first time.But I am doing it the other way round.
NJP-pelling- uttarey- kaluk-njp.
So it is possible.I'll be starting on 31st October though.Thinking about including Versey.If you have any info about Versey plz share.
Did not make any hotel bookings yet.if you are done wid the bookings plz share the hotel names,contact info,and fare.
It will be a real help.

Yes it is possible and i think that will be better. Ghonday Village Resort is better option but expensive. You may try Tamu Homestay at Tadong, 2 Km from Kaluk towards Barmiok. It is a basic arrangement, but one enjoy the homestay essence there. Contact - 9733270189. I'm going there on last week of this month by bike from kolkata.
