    Your six days Sikkim holiday itinerary

    Day1

    Arrive at the Bagdogra Airport or New Jalpaiguri railway station near Darjeeling and meet our local representative. Located about 100 kms, Sillery lies camouflaged in the busy-touristy district of Darjeeling. En route to this quaint haven, you’ll cross the beautiful hill stations of Kalimpong and Pedong. The journey itself is just an introduction to the tour, a preface to the magnificent views of the Himalayas and an introduction to the Silk Route. Check in to your home stay, savour a local lunch and enjoy the surrounding vistas. Taking out your cameras and capturing the sunset is definitely inevitable, but for a change, enjoy the serenity and the simplicity of this village. Idle around, relish your dinner and spend a comfortable overnight in Sillery.

    Day2

    Breakfast, served hot and healthy shall await you; relish every bite it. Only on such a trail will you notice the changing colours of Mt. Kangchenjunga from the comfort of your resort. Let such views leave you startled and bring out the hidden philosopher in you. Check out from your home stay. Not far from your current location, you shall move towards the village of Aritar. On the sweeping Himalayan edge, about 40 kms away, Aritar lies isolated from the humdrum of any over-hyped hill station. Check in to your hotel and saunter about the place to enjoy some nearby sights. A view you can trade for all the comfort in life is witnessed at the Ramitey Viewpoint. While you are still in the awe of this place, enjoy your lunch. Behold more glory than ever at the Silent Valley, Lampokhari Lake and Dak Bungalow. Savour a tasty dinner and chill out in your hotel in Aritar.

    Day3

    After breakfast, check-out from the hotel and leave on a road trip to Zuluk. Heart-warming views and pleasant breeze will be by your side throughout your journey. While the chirping of birds, fill your soul with a musical treat at the Mankhim top, the plunge at the Kuekhola Waterfalls will pump up your spirits. After obtaining the necessary permits at Rongli, you will pass through the pristine villages of Lingtam, Nimachen and Padamchen. You will be served a tasteful lunch and dinner on this tour. A night of pleasant dreams amongst the galore of nature awaits in your home stay at Zuluk.

    Day4

    Today morning, you’ll feel blessed, when you watch Mt. Kangchenjunga wear different coloured drapes, as the sun slowly rises from its cleave. This will be one morning you won’t regret waking up early; some yoga or suryanamaskar won’t be a bad idea either. Feed yourself to a hearty breakfast and begin your day with an excursion to Ganek, Thambi viewpoint and Laxmi Chowk. A lunch amidst the nature’s glory shall not just fill your stomach, but also your heart. Move on to next destination, Lungthung. Lungthung is cloaked in a white carpet of snow throughout the year. Wild blossoms ramp up a riot of colours in their full bloom - a paradise on earth that still beholds the immaculate charm. At night, after stocking yourself with a splendid dinner, repose in your stay at Zuluk for the night.

    Day5

    Post an awesome breakfast, check out from your home stay, only to complete the last leg of your silk route trail. You shall cross the Adi Baba Dham, Tukla Valley, Elephant Lake and golf course. Traverse through the Jelelp La pass viewpoint. Nestled in lush valleys, it links Tibet to the eastern part of Sikkim. You may have seen a thousand landscapes before, but this one will remain special. You will be served lunch and dinner. Spend the night in your home stay at Lungthung dreaming about your wonderful trip on the legendary Silk Route of India.

    Day6

    Savour one last meal in your heart-warming home stay and leave for Bagdogra Airport or New Jalpaiguri railway station. Trips may end, but some journeys remain etched in your memories for forever. Take back home a soul-stirring experience from the Silk Route trail in India.
