I have very limited time to cover the maximum. So I have planned as:

Day1: NJP/Siliguri to Okhrey via Jorethang.

Day2: Okhery to Hilley via Jeep and Hilley to Varsey by trek.

Day3: Trek back to Hilley and Hire a jeep to Lachen.

Day4: Visit to Gurudongmer Lake and Back to Lachung.

Day5: Visit to Yumthang, ZeroPoint and back to Gangtok.

Day6: Gangtok to NJP.


Thanks,
Shridhar

Shrid,

You can reach Barsey on the first day itself if you start a bit early from NJP.

We did the same trek last year.

NJP to Jorethang(will take around 3 hrs)

Jorethang to Sombaria(around 2 hrs).

Sombaria to Hilley(1.5 hrs).(You have to book a car from Sombaria to Hilley)

Hilley to Barsey is hardly 2 hrs trek.

But to reach Barsey in a single day to have to start early from NJP if you are opting to avail shared jeep service all the way.

Best of Luck

It will be better to start your north sikkim journey from gangtok .Hilley to lachen may take 8 hrs & car can be booked from Jorthang.From gangtok to lachen will take atleast 6 hrs due to bad road condition.

Also for north sikkim you need to have the permit which can be obtained from gangtok after submitting 2 pass port size photograph & govt i/d prof .

Have you booked any accommodation at hilley ??
