    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.

    I recommend you buy tea of all sorts, white, green, black when you are in Sikkim because I tried few on this tour and the state made me a tea-lover with every cup of tea. We mainly went to North Sikkim which included Yumthang Valley, Kanchenjunga National park, Lachen, Lachung. In my opinion, I found Gurudongmar lake prettier than Tsomgo, maybe because it's undefined appearance. Mr. Borpatra was our tour guide and he took us to authentic tea shops when we showed a desire to shop for some local items. He knew the place in and out and we truly appreciate his presence on this six-day long trip.

    This was a most memorable trip for us. Even though we had many last minute changes, the team (Amanpreet from Thrillophilia and Deep from tour angle) have coordinated well. Lachen got closed when we were in the trip but that was replaced with Darjeeling per our request. Thanks to the team for the great experience.

    Everything very well executed and our trip was very smooth with all the permits etc ready and handed over to us before hand without any delay. Excellent hotels in lachen and lachung, polite drivers and cars in good condition. Faced a little set back as was not satisfied with the room in the hotel in Gangtok but the team ensured that we got upgraded the next day.

    On this tour, we visited a hot spring in Yumthang valley and I even took a dip, this was the first time I had a hot-spring experience and it was so amazing. Our Sikkim trip conducted by Thrillophilia was one of the best till now. Good hotels, polite and friendly driver and guide and what wonderful sceneries crossed our way. Still in love with the majestic landscapes of Sikkim.

    The days were mostly clear when we visited Sikkim and As much as I enjoyed the place, I also appreciate the presence of a knowledgeable person as our guide- Mr. Gogoi. My favorite spots were Thangu, Singhik and Tashi viewpoints after crossing Mangan on the way to Lachen. The clear sight of Mt. Kanchenjunga and Eastern Himalayas was a pure bliss for me and my family. Lachen and Lachung are two of the main highlights of this tour and I can't stop mentioning that both these locations are out of the world. Do expect some bumpy ride on the way.

    I felt a little breathlessness at Gurudongmar lake but was saved by our guide who quickly stopped everyone, took me to a nearby tea shop, asked me to not exert and let me be for five minutes. Thanks to him that I was able to do the entire tour without worry. The places we visited included Tsomgo Lake, Baba Mandir, Chungthang, Yumthang valley, Lachen and Lachung. Worth the money paid for this tour.
