Hi, we are 4 adults ( 02 family) traveling toDarjeeling & Gangtok in last week of march and need your help in planning my trip to Darjeeling & Gangtok.
we are reaching NJP on 9 AM on 24th March and I have booked return rail from njp on 29th march at 9 PM.
So we want to surely visit below places for must:
1. Tiger Hill, toy train, Darjeeling
2. nathula pass, yumthang, 0 point,Gangtok

SO can you please suggest me how to accomplish visiting both the above places with my schedule with sharing transport? pls suggest some good budget hotels also.
what will be approximate cost per head?
is necessary to contact any tour agent?

Hi moydulislam,

Welcome to Indiamike


Jito chalked the plan perfectly. My suggestion is also like this :

24th March - Gangtok. Local Sight seeing, Stay at Gangtok.
25th - Tsomgo, Nathula, Baba Mandir
26th - Gangtok to Lachung
27th - Yumthang, Zero Point, Yumesamdong - if possible back to Gangtok
28th - Gangtok to Darjeeling, local sight seeing. (Book toy train in advance)
29th - Back to NJP via Mirik.

Hmmmm. You already got the suggestion from the helpful IMers for your 6 days. If Nathula (Wed-Sun) is the main problem, arrange it after North Tour. So you can arrange it in the following order:

Day 1: (Sunday) You can reach in Gangtok after Lunch hour. So it is not possible for whole day sightseeing. Choose the some nearest spots. Evening in M G Marg. (Arrange your Yumthang tour+Nathula Tour for the next day if not pre-booked)

Day 2 & 3: (Mon-Tue) Gangtok-Lachung-Yumthang-Gangtok. If possible, extend your North tour upto Zero Point( Snow may be the main obstacle).

Day 4. (Wednesday) Tsomgo Lake and Nathula.

Day 5. (Thursday) Start early for Darjeeling. Use second half for local sightseeing.

Day 6. (Friday) A early morning visit to Tiger Hill, Batasia Loop, Ghum Monastry etc. After Lunch proceed for NJP.

With best wishes,

PS. It is your trip. You finalize the trip according to your taste and choice.
