TRAVEL GUIDE ON NAMCHI RAVANGLA PELLING

Reading Time: 9 minutesGANGTOK, NAMCHI, RAVANGLA AND PELLING IN 3 NIGHTS 4 DAYS – by Anindita Barui We, Bengalis, are known for our passion for travelling. Whenever we get a chance we strat making plans for a holiday. Be it a weekend trip or a long holiday we are always ready to explore new places. Me & my husband are no different. Last year two of us along with our two friends suddenly made a plan for Ravangla in South Sikkim. 3 NIGHTS – 4 DAYS ITINERARY Day 1 : Reach Gangtok & go for sightseeing. Night stay at Gangtok. Day 2 : Travel from Gangtok to Ravangla. Enroute Temi Tea Garden & Namchi. Night stay at Ravangla. Day 3: Maenam hill trek. Night stay at Ravangla. (We had a back up plan to visit Pelling on this day as there was a chance for raining). Day 4 : Ravangla sightseeing & return to NJP. So after all the bookings, we started our journey on 27th april, 2018. We had our booking in ‘Uttarbanga Express’ from sealdah station to reach New Jalpaiguri. After reaching New Jalpaiguri in the next morning, we hired a car for Gangtok. Luckily, it was a sumo & costs 2500 rupee only after bargaining. So whenever you are hiring a car outside NJP railway station, must bargain with the driver. Our plan was to reach gangtok before lunch. But due to heavy traffic we reached ‘Deorali’ at 3.15 pm. From here one has to take another car to reach gangtok. The distance is almost 5km & it charged Rs. 300 for the trip. So finaly...
