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)

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 were very excited for next day when we visited Tsomgo lake, Kyongnosla, and Baba Harbhajan Singh Mandir. The road wasn’t always smooth but we had a great time exploring this side of Sikkim. On our way to Lachen, we even stopped at seven sisters waterfall and Kabi lungchok. Wherever we stopped for tea and snacks, toilets were available and that is the best part about Sikkim, even the remotest places are aware of the essentials. I ate momos wherever I found, the best was in the town of Gangtok in MG road market.
