18 oct could cause you some problem....you will reach manebhanjan around 11 or 12 noon....If you don't prebook any cab for njp you might find it difficult to get one on the spot...

Nope... unfortunately no... but changed the plan to North Sikkim (Lachen, Gurudongmar, Lachung, Yumsedong, Zero). Enjoyed North Sikkim very much.

I had done all the bookings for Sandakphu but cancelled since i was travelling with me 4 year old daughter and i believe the infrastructure was not that well for a family travel that too with a 4 year old.

With Land Rover you can go to Sandakphu and Phalut also. But the real fun of Sandakphu is in trekking and not travelling by Land Rover. Also the roads are extremely bumpy and the entire ride is very uncomfortable. Choice of food is very limited so with a child it becomes a real issue.
