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!

... where the river Teestha confluences with River Rangeet. The view point is amazing. On days with clear sky, one can witness the clear turquoise color of the water of river Teestha winding thru the mountains. On the other side of the view point are some tea plantations.
The drive from Darjeeling to Gangtok takes about 4 to 5 hrs. We reached Gangtok in the evening and were lucky enough to attend the winter fest that was going on in ...
Second harvest whole-leaf tea is my favorite. I bought a package each of green and black tea. The white tea didn’t have enough flavor for me, and if I ever have a hankering for Oolong, I’ll just mix my own from the black and green teas I purchased.
The others? Yeah, they got tea too… a lot of tea. I’d say our tea purchases could fill a couple of grocery bags. Good thing we have so much room left in our ...
I have absolutely loved Darjeeling but it is time for me to move on as it is getting too cold. I even had to buy a jacket which I said I wouldn't do. I have met some great travelers from all around the world (Belgium, UK, Australia, Sweden, USA, France, Germany and Israel) and shared some great stories and travel tips. I am sad to be leaving.
At the moment the majority of India is on holiday and it has been a nightmare to book train tickets. Most people book a ...
... here not even being open and none being particularly cheap or comfortable. We eventaully settled on a place that had a rumor of wifi (It turned out to be 100 rupees per person per day and only accessable in one room, making it a no go) with comfyish beds, lots of blankets (I can't stress how important this was) and a hot shower. More than we were used to paying for a room, but it would make our stay in Darjeeling more enjoyable.
Relieved to finally ...
... 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 ...
