This was my first trip with Thrillophilia as well as with complete strangers. I must say that Thrillophilia did not disappoint me ( nobody is perfect, so be flexible to accept minute glitches) . The whole trip went so smooth , starting from the pick up from airport, the hotels we got, arrangement of permits, site seeing and drop at the airport. Special thanks to Deep ( trip coordinator from tour angle) and Ammu ( my cab driver) . P. S. : if you want to see the flower calf yumthang valley and the frozen Tsomgo and Gurudongmar lake , then the ideal time to visit north Sikkim is March-April. November is the ideal time to witness the pleasant winter of sikkim along with its untouched beauty. Looking forward to travel more with Thrillophilia. P.S: the only problem which we faced was two co- passengers who used to get late for everything and because of them we had to rush from each location because of time constraint ( I totally understand that this things isn’t in the hand of Thrillophilia)
Excellent
vehicles provided i.e, Xylo were comfortable enough to make the journey through non existent roads bearable. hotels had all standard facilities.our driver was very compliant. Mr.Deep really coordinated well. package was money's worth. few travellers reached bagdogra at 3pm. Overall tour was enjoyable and exciting as well. advice - On the way to Gurudongmar Lake try coffee jalebi momos at Gaigaon Check post one the highest army check post. have dosa at Thangu valley at the world's highest dosa point. try thukpas ,momos, wai wai all your way. try imli candies buy different kinds of tea from Lal Market Or M. G.Marg black tea, white tea, flavoured green teas (lemon, tulsi, ginger) , chamomile tea, rose tea. Temi tea is a good brand marketed by Govt of Sikkim. Buy Buddhist prayer flags available starting from rs. 20 only . they consider it good omen to receive these flags as a gift.

I am madly and deeply in love with Sikkim. I can't believe a place like this can be so beautiful and still people are unaware about it. Walking through narrow pathways and tiny hamlets on the way make this place all the more interesting and worth the effort.

Kanchenjunga is certainly an epitome of beauty and Sikkim is one place that provides you with panoramic views. loved the entire trekking part. Great place, great people amazing time - thanks to our trek guide who made sure people were satisfied and enjoying the trek.

First of all I would like to thanks Thrillophilia for giving us such a lifetime experience in Gangtok..The main highlights of this tour was Tsomgo Lake, Baba Mandir, Tiger hill. We even went up to Nathu la pass and it was freezing up there
I was planning a trip with my gang and was searching over the internet for something interesting when I saw this package. I will have to admit that this was the best trip for us. We were 6 people who went on this amazing Sikkim Tour
Everything was good must recommend this tour to everyone. A big thumbs up
It was a very well organized tour. Everything was nicely arranged, the driver was also good. Overall it was a nice trip.
We were picked up from Bagdogra airport and on our way to Gangtok, we drove across Mahananda wildlife sanctuary, it was such a green drive. We explored MG road and Lal market in the evening. We also visited the famous Tsomgo lake, Kyongnosla, and Baba Harbhajan Singh Mandir.
I booked the Gangtok package from Kolkata and I am thankful to the entire team of Thrillophilia for making this trip so memorable. We enjoyed both the locations equally and my favorite is the winding road leading to Darjeeling and the beautiful Kanchenjunga point.
