Hi all,

I am planning to travel to Darjeeling and Gangtok in February of next year. I will be accompanied by my wife and parents. Wanted your help on a few things:

1. Would it be too cold for my parents? They are 60+ and my mother has spondylitis.

2. I am planning to do both Darjeeling and Gangtok between 6-7 days. Will I be able to do justice to the two places? Also would it get too hectic for my parents?

3. Can you give me some idea for transportation costs in Darjeeling for sightseeing etc. I would prefer to take a car for 4 people.

4. I was checking Airbnb for homestays. Do you think these will be good? You can give me any other information that you think would help.

Thanks in advance for all the information you can give.

Yes, it will be cold. Try to find accommodation with heating and hot water (not terribly easy in Darj).

One week for Darjeeling and Gangtok is plenty of time to do justice to both. You would also have time to add in Western Sikkim.

Regarding car hire, please read the following (especially the last few posts):
