    This tour was commendable and I just want to take a moment to thank Thrillophilia for making so wonderful for all the four of us. Our tour guide has now become our friend, we spent most of the day driving up and down the high mountain roads but was always given comfortable and neat hotels to doze off. We had no issue with the food, in fact, we loved the Indian local curries and rice.

    We sat by the river in Reshikhola on our fifth day of the journey, and spent the tour mostly on the serpentine roads of East Sikkim. Scaled the old trade route from where you can see rolling Himalayan peaks forming layers. Went as high as 13,000 feet which was Lungthung valley near Zuluk. Stayed in comfortable hotels and really liked the entire tour.

    Since the very first day of the tour was Sillery Gaon the old silk route, I knew it is not a regular one. We reached the village early and explored Pedong Monastery along with Silent valley, Ramitey view point, and Damsang fort. The route to Zuluk is quite offbeat and I must say that the Eastern Sikkim is the greenest of all. We stayed in a hotel in Zuluk on Day three which overlooked the Kanchenjunga range and out of all the places I have been to, this was the best views of the entire range. The drive to Nathang was not at all smooth but as we were ascending to an elevation, the view was just getting better. Our permits and entry were looked after by the driver, visited valleys like Gnathang Valley, and Tukla Valley.

    The six day tour become a little tiring for my Mom and Dad as they are getting old. I just wanted to take them to a less crowded side of Sikkim and I am glad that this Thrillophilia package came in handy. Hope to get such good deals in future too!
