This hotel 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.

Then I ate some delicious cakes in a bakery in the center and then went up the streets in search of views. I walked for a long time until the craft museum ...
... We climbed into the jeep and drove only a little way to a proper busy little town where we had some food in a very local restaurant to prepare ourselves for the 3 hour drive back to Darjeeling. We dropped GD off at his house and gave him his tip and said Thankyou. He has given every piece of contact information he can about him incase I can refer him any other trekkers although really I know he wants me to put it all on trip advisor so he can take travellers direct as I am ...
... our journey up, was the scenic toy train that ran up to Darjeeling from the plains, snaked across and along the highway up! I noticed there were no level crossings and the train tracks just seemed to cross randomly even on sharp blind corners. So god help us and anyone when that train is coming either up or down, as its a game of dodge the train with a shear drop on the other side just to add to the fun!! Saying that we did actually pass the train up but it was ...
