5 to 7 Days are sufficient to have a leisure time in Darjeeling and around Gangtok. Keep Darjeeling in the begining and Gangtok later in the loop of your trip. 2 days in Darjeeling and 2 days in Gangtok are enough for sightseeing. Nathula,Changu lake is just a one day tour from Gangtok.


Darjeeling is a lush green hill town in West Bengal, famous for its tea plantations. Developed by the British in the 19th century, this serene town is now home to the vibrant Tibetan and Sikkimese cultures. Hop on to the quiet Himalayan Railway to experience some of the most breathtaking views of the majestic Himalayas on your journey.


A prominent Buddhist pilgrimage site,Gangtok is nestled in the high peaks of the Himalayas and shelters the Enchey Monastery. This raw untouched beauty of northeast is situated in the Shivalik hills of the eastern Himalayas at an altitude of 1,700 meters.

Nathula Pass

Nathula Pass was a major corridor of passage between India and Tibet before it was closed in 1962. Located around 51 kms from Gangtok and 97 kms from Darjeeling, at an altitude of 14,400 ft, the road to Nathula passes through the Tsomgo Lake. It is one of the highest motorable roads in the world and is richly surrounded by alpine flora. On a clear day you can even see the road winding down the Chumbi valley. Tourists are allowed to go close to the international border from where you can see Chinese soldiers on the other side of the barbed wire.Nathula is open for Indian nationals on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays; 5 days a week. The visitors have to get the permit to visit the place by applying to the Tourism and Civil Aviation Department through a registered Travel Agency.
