Hi IMers,

This month I am planning to go for a relaxing trip to the hills. Planned to go to Silk route in Jan-15, but somehow due to health problems we dropped the plan. Me and my wife will go only..no kids. But very long distance bumpy rides like North Sikkim is difficult for time being.
But I can't wait more and we decided to go to locations with OK roads and lower altitudes ( < 8000 ft) like Reshikhola, Pedong, Kalimpong, Deolo etc and finally Darjeeling.

Please help me in setting my plan, where to go first ? How long to stay where ? I do not want to hurry- This time we prefer the tour for relaxing rather than adventure on high adrenaline !!

15/3 - Bagdogra - Reshikhola
16/3- Stay at Reshikhola
17/3- Move to Aritar (stay in Kanchenjunga mirror)
18/3- Move to Kalimpong
19/3- Stay at Kalimpong and sightseeing
20/3- Move to Darjeeling
21/3- Stay in Darjeeling
22/3- Return to Kolkata through Bagdogra

Pls suggest me if this plan looks possible. Or suggest changes or other places. After I get replies from IMers ...we will start booking hotels.
Let me wander, let's get lost
In these ferns and the frost.

Where is this place? Does this Aritar have a good motorable road? Altitude please? Actually I am asking because I am leaving for Darjeeling tomorrow night. I shall be going by car, hence I shal have a car at my disposal at all times. If the road is good, I may pay a visit there too.

@ Rahul 4640: Yes, That's a nice place with motorable road. I found many posts in Sikkim threads describing the place. It has a beautiful lake there and appx 15 km from Reshi.
