6 October Pelling to Gangtok
6 October - PellingWas a welcoming sight this morning with Mt Khangchenzonga and surrounding mountains in view. This mountain is the third highest in ...
... amp; started up into the mountains. We had wanted to take theToy Train up, but a landslide a few years back knocked part of the track out. You can still take it from about 1/2 way up, from the town of Kurseong, where we were headed.
Along the way we talked with the German girls, Kristen & Johanna. They have done extensive travel as well, were very nice, & we had some good conversations. The ride up was very steep & windy, ...
... the guide never once looked out of breath, I was very grateful for the couple of minute breaks he gave us every so often. Just as your heart stopped trying to force its way out of your chest with every breath, it was time to go again…but God, was it good to be out in the clean fresh air! The clouds had really come in so there was no view to enjoy but it was lovely and cool, something we’d have killed for in Kolkata!
The last kilometre ...
... downhill we were assured ) for a bbq lunch. We all set off very leisurely ,blissfully unaware that we would walk 14 km that day .It's amazing what your body can actually accomplish despite having a strong urge to return to bed.
We all walked together and chatted to different guests on the way . Elsa came all the way with us and did very well for a usually fireside dog. The cars met us half way with cold homemade lemonade and some of the ...
... lucky to have witnessed this phenomena buts it’s not till later that we realize how lucky. The clouds start to roll in creating a thin mist as we head to Pelling a small town renowned for its view of the mountains.

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!
