Hi there,

I am planning to go sandakhphu in the first week of April 2016 along with my wife. The schedule goes like this.

3rd Apr: NJP-Tumling (night stay at Tumling)> 4th Apr: Tumling-Sandakhphu (via Singalila National Park; Night stay at Sandakhphu)> 5th Apr: Sandakhphu-Phalut (night stay at Sandakhphu) 6th Aprl: Sandakhphu> 7th Apr: Sandakhphu to NJP.

Since my wife in not used to trekking, we would prefer to do the trip by vehicle.

My question are the following:

1. I want to go to Manebhanjen in shared taxis from NJP..How would I go from there? Will I get share cabs from NJP. What could be approximate fare for that?

2. From Manebhanjan, if we book Landrover for rest of the trip, what could be the fare for that? is sharing possible from there?

3. NJP to tumling..Can I reach in one day..As I will go by Padatik express, It will reach there 9:15 am? Can I make it? How long will it take to manebhanjan?

4. What could be probable places to see in Sandakhphu?

6. on the 7th, is it feasible to reach NJP from Sandakhphu in one day..we have train to cath in the evening 8 pm on the same day.

Kindly help me by getting the questions answered. You help is much appreciated.

Thanks
Rajesh

Hello
Have you already fixed your dates? I am also planning to visit Sandakphu by Landrover, looking for partners to share the cost.

If you are using a Land Rover to go to Sandakphu, why not proceed further to Phalut ? The varied landscapes enroute will mesmerize you as will the variety of rhododendrons in bloom during this time of the year. Moreover do not expect to see much around Sandakphu as it is an extremely small hamlet with only a handful of hotels and rest houses and an army outpost. But on a clear day the panorama infront will remain in your memory for long with the Everest Family on the extreme left and Kanchenjunga on the right. And you will get a more closer view of this beautiful panorama from Phalut Top which is about half an hour huff and puff upward climb from Phalut.
