Have a fill at morning breakfast. Today we go for an excursion to Tshangu Lake, the most famous and spectacular lake in Sikkim. We drive through steep hilly ways to reach lake at a height of 12,400 feet. We take this rise of about 6900 feet in just 40 kms that we cover in 3-4 hrs. The lake is said to be about 50 ft deep so watch your step! Surrounded with high hills covered with snow, the shimmering waters of the lake surely provide an absolutely breathtaking landscape. It is regarded as a very sacred lake by local people. The lake freezes in winters. Take majestic views of Mt. Kanchenjunga from here on a clear day. Relax in nature’s lap by the lake side. You can also enjoy a yak ride here (at extra cost). We also visit Baba Mandir, a small temple dedicated to Lord Shiva situated just beside the lake. Return to Gangtok in the evening. (Note: We strongly advise you to carry your woollen clothes.)

You can also opt for a tour to Nathu La (Indo China border) at an extra cost. It can be taken only one day prior to the tour and carrying your original national identity with 03 passport size photos is a requisite. Nathu La Tour can be availed only to the Indian citizens. It remains closed on Monday and Tuesday.

Enjoy a relaxed morning amidst the utmost beautiful landscapes and have a fill at breakfast. Later check out from the hotel and set off to Darjeeling.

Darjeeling is one of the most beautiful and peaceful places to visit in India. It’s a noted paradise for tea lovers. Drive through the tea plantations that seem like infinite emerald green layers reaching the feet of snow clad Himalayan peaks. Located 7400 ft above sea level, it is a stunning hill station to visit. Check in the hotel and relax. Evening is at your own leisure. We recommend you to sleep early because next day we go to Tiger Hill and the tour starts at 3:30 AM.

Get up really early in the morning. We set off at 3:30 AM to visit Tiger hill situated at 8400 feet high. Tiger hill is most famous hill point to view magical sunrise over Kanchenjunga peak (Subject to clear weather). See the sky getting pink as sun starts to play its colours from behind the mountains. After all the anxiousness and wait, the sun will show up and the experience is just beyond words. After giving a warm welcome to Sun, we visit Ghoom Monastry and Batasia Loop, a fantastic feat of engineering. We come back to hotel for treating our empty stomachs with some breakfast.

Later we proceed for a Half Day Sightseeing Tour of Darjeeling. We visit Japanese Temple, Peace Pagoda, Padmaja Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park, Himalayan Mountaineering Institute (Closed on Thursday), Darjeeling Ropeway Ride (Ticket cost not included), Tenzing & Gombu Rock and Tibetan Refugee Self-Help Center (Closed on Sunday). Driving through the panoramic Tea Estate, we return back to the hotel in evening. Remaining time you can spend at your own leisure.

We visit Mirik Lake, the best attraction in the place. It is 1.25 km long and depth varies from 3 to 26 feet. You can stroll around the lake, snap great pictures on an over-bridge and enjoy boating in the sparkling water (extra cost). After spending a great leisure day, return back to Darjeeling.
