christopher is sleeping and it's almost 3 p.m. I guess the jet lag caught up with him. here is a photo from the banana leaf restaurant we ate at yesterday. i figured out an itinerary today. we will see how it works out. seems a little complicated. there are so many unknowns. hard to know where the trains travel or if we will be able to get tickets …
... Junction. Its a place where you get buses, cars, jeeps for almost all places connected to siliguri. You might end up with a better deal to Gangtok(Might be an AC bus at just 210 INR).
Well, we took a Non-AC bus, due to mismatched timing, that cost just 130 INR each. But the journey was fine. We reached Gangtok at 1pm.
After having a quick refreshment in the hotel, we headed for planning the next days.

TravelPod Member ReviewsChumbi Residency Hotel Gangtok
This hiew el has been very satisfactory. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. We love the duvets - beds very comfy. We could have a spectacular view of the valley if the mist would lift but it might be the wrong season - April 18 & 19. The restaurant in the hotel is quite good and recommended in guidebooks. Service has been good. I hadn't realized that Sikkim is making lots of efforts to be green and I appreciate that a lot.
