TravelPod Member ReviewsClub Mahindra Gangtok, Royal Demazong
If you arrive at night, it's pitch dark and the journey tiring. When you wake up the next morning and go to the balcony, you are greeted with lush green mountains decorated with pine trees all around. The fresh mountain air is all you'd need to wake up and spend some time relaxing.
The staff is courteous, nice, welcoming and treats you like you're the most important person in this whole world. You don't need to introduce yourself to them ... check in and every where you go - fun zone, The Orchid Restaurant or The Alpine Bar, everyone knows you and the room you're staying in.
The rooms are clean and the bed cozy. Some rooms don't have a geyser, which could be an inconvenience, but I am sure they'd arrange some hot water for you if you ask for it. The food is delicious, albeit expensive.
The place is located near Chandmari, Gangtok which is a good half hour drive away from Gangtok town. If you're looking for a place to relax, away from town is what you'd need.
All in all - I had a wonderful time there. Highly recommended!

... After an hour it was slightly clearer but we decided to go back to our hotel. On the way back we bought some tea from a little stall and drank this on the way to the hotel. We then ordered our breakfast and it was brought to our room 10 minutes later. We ate breakfast and got back into bed to warm up. Laura had a little nap and I continued to catch up with the blog. ...
... the complete railway that was severed by the landslide in the last entry.
Off it goes, up the high street. A bit of fun is that this a special train not expected by the shopkeepers who have to move all their wares that are too close to the track.
For steam buffs, the sound of the train is just about orgasmic - and this goes on for the whole 2 hours or so to Ghuum. 5 of the group are linesiding - that is ...
... in spite of heavy traffic sharing the limited driving space. The countryside is beautiful, and we occasionally got a glimpse of the snow-capped Himalayas through distant haze. We passed tea gardens where women were plucking the tender tea leaves. ...
