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!

... There were probably 70 or so. From old ones to small babies. They were headed up a long, windy set of stairs toward a temple on top of a hill, so we joined them. There were Tibetan prayer flags draped over all the trees. It was a bit different than the usual temple. It was made of concrete, & all outdoors. Additionally, we were confused what religion the temple was meant for. We're no experts, but it looked like both Hindu & Buddhist gods were present. ...
... chanting and beating of the drum and I almost drifted off.I guess this is as close to meditating that I have ever done.
Now that I have my ticket it is time to mentally prepare myself for the trip and the chaos that is New Delhi.

... currently supplys many big name companies around the world, including Harrods. We got a guide to show us around the building itself as well as some background into tea growing and processing. Our little tour was followed by a tea tasting in a lady's house on the tea hills. Here we tried "The best tea in the world". Named "Super fine tippy, golden flowery orange pick one" it is not one that you can easily get off your tongue, however when your drinking it ...
... were bad we discover they can be worse. We rarely get out of first gear for 3 ½ hours and I spend most of the drive not looking down past the clouds. As soon as we enter Ghorkaland (tho really West Bengal) the tea appears on the steep slopes. It’s a picture we have all seen, the tea trees with women filling the cane baskets they carry on their backs. Darjeeling finally turns up amidst horns and traffic, people everywhere we are back in Bengal. Our driver has to park a distance ...
