Need advise. I plan to travel to Sikkim/Darjeeling in the month of March starting from 22nd from Bagdogra and return back to Bagdogra on 30th March - a nine day program. The program is like this: day 1 Baghdogra to Gangtok, day 2 Gangtok, Day 3 Gangtok, Day 4 Gangtok, Day 5 gangtok-pelling (bus journey) Day 6 Pelling, Day 7 Pelling to Darjeeling, Day 8 Darjeeling and Day 9 return to Baghdogra.

My questions are :

(1) Is this sufficient or more?
(2) I was told Nathula pass is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Is this true?
(3) Safety/Security issues
(4) What about weather in March - will it be too cold? Warm cloths - light or heavy.

Would appreciate your feedback.::

1. yes.......but 4n in Gangtok is more than sufficient I think.........you may add Rabongla/Kaluk/Kalimpong/Silrey/Mankhim/Silk route/Kalimpong etc
2. true
3. nothing ....... one of the safest place on Indian map.........carry photo ID & passport size photos
4. it'll be charming cold at that time at the places you mentioned.........except Nathula..........carry heavy woolen for that part

PS: hope you drop North Sikkim from your itinerary not by mistake
.


Totaly confused how to explore the beautiful earth when one life is too short to complete my great India

Thanks. I have a question. Is it advisable to visit sikkim thru tour operators? Can I not go myself and cover all the areas? when you take the help of tour operators, they have their own program. Hence one will not be able to cover all the locations. If one has to go alone, could you recommend a itinerary. Thanks in advance.

Without agency it's possible............ For itinerary need to know your desired places and days . ............ Cover entire Sikkim at a time is impossible.......... I'm still trying to do so for decades
