Planning a holiday to Sikkim is a difficult proposition if one has few days to spend. Travel agencies are unable to explain the terrain to cover, even locals are of the opinion to do excursions away than within Sikkim. There is so much to see and so little time. The five days I stayed in Sikkim left me totally confounded. I should not have conformed to the so-called sound advice from a group hotel that did not guide well.
From Gangtok it’s prudent to cover some more areas like the South or even Eastern part of Sikkim. There are many hotels that have branches (its cheaper from the same group) in these parts of Sikkim, what better way to explore different areas of Sikkim and get on to higher grounds.
