This journey from Gangtok to North Sikkim then west and south Sikkim for us was about 7 nights and 8 days.. It costed us Rs 35k…
35k is only for taxi for 8 days.
Other costs are extra. This 8 day journey is for North, south and west Sikkim. We paid Rs 2500 for taxi per day in Gangtok, that was for 8 hours.. they charge extra if you hire beyond 8 hours..
we virtually ended up paying about Rs 3300 to 3500 per day for local sight seeing bcoz we had taxi with full for full day early morning to late evening.
This complete complete journey from Gangtok to Lachen in North sikkim took us about 13 hours….
Reason it took time was bcoz we stopped for food, shoot took time plus every 30 minutes we took break to see and enjoy the beauty…
If you want to plan this journey, i will suggest you to get your bookings done properly because it involves permit.
We did this journey during last week of June 2018, which is an off season time…
Important note for this journey:
Avoid rainy season.
Travel in either feb or March or in oct and nov to enjoy sikkim the most.
Check with your travel agent on the fact whether can travel to North sikkim or not because some of the routes are closed because of snow.
Cost for minimum low cost travel two and a half days in Gangtok will be about Rs 11000 – details in description of previous episodes of Gangtok:
Taxi cost for travel to North or other regions of Sikkim: Rs 3500 per day, for certain cost moment you are 2 people cost goes high. for example i have put 400 fare from siliguri to Gangtok for one person so you have to adjust if you are two.
Food Rs 1500
hotel: Rs 2000
For every day that you travel in Sikkim minimum cost will be Rs 7000.
North sikkim i don’t think you can travel by bus, i am not sure, suggest check with some one else…but yes you can travel to other districts of sikkim by bus, check details with tourism office in MG marg Gangtok for details.
MG marg is the place which is heart of Gangtok, try taking a hotel near MG marg.
Sikkim is over all expensive, so be sure on costs bcoz your budgets can over shoot, especially if you are going in peak season. Cost that you are see are of off season, during season every thing is atleast 30 percent higher on cost…
If you have any experience of sikkim travel, do share that in comments below. I would look forward to hear back from you in this regard.
