Welcome to the Cleanest State in India - Sikkim, and transfer to the capital city. As the aircraft lands at the nearest airport, our representative waits outside to meet & greet on arrival at Bagdogra and drives towards Gangtok (Alt.5550Ft/1675M). The drive is about 4 hours following the most scenic way through the beautiful lanes of Sikkim along with the picturesque Teesta River.
On arrival, check in to the beautiful view rooms of the hotel well equipped with modern amenities and sink into the soft bed to get off the exhaustion. In the evening, take a stroll in the neighborhood or enjoy some hot coffee sitting at the balcony while admiring the beauty of the place. Overnight at Gangtok.
As the morning sores in, the warm rays of the sun knocks through the window to give a startup call for the second day. Enjoy breakfast at the hotel in its peaceful surroundings, and load the bags with dry foods before leaving for a full day trip to Tsomgo Lake with Baba Mandir / Nathula Pass Excursion.
Tsomgo Lake (12400ft) - Also known as Changu Lake is an oval shaped glacial lake which is only 40 km from Gangtok City, and almost about 1Km in length with 15 meters depth. The name Tsomgo is made of two words in Bhutia Language 'Tso' means 'lake' and 'Mgo' means 'head' in a short 'source of the lake'. This high altitude lake is surrounded by snow-capped steep mountains and remains frozen during wintertime. As summer beings to step-in, the glacier melts and the lake gets its origin. The locals consider the lake to be sacred, and it reflects different colors with the change in seasons.
New Baba Harbhajan Singh Mandir - The Baba Mandir was built in the Memorial of Baba Harbhajan Singh or the 'Hero of Nathula', a soldier in the Indian Army. It is situated at a distance of 12Km from Tsomgo lake, and 52Km from Gangtok city. Baba Harbhajan served as a part of border patrol force, and in the year 1968 while escorting a mule column he felts on a fast-flowing stream and got carried away by the powerful water current. Soldiers found his remains after 3 days and cremated with full military honor along with a shrine on his Samadhi built as per Babaâ€™s wish, which he expressed through his friend post-death. The original bunker of Baba Harbhajan Singh is located further up near the Gnathang valley which is the Old Baba Mandir but because of its difficult terrain tourist canâ€™t reach there so they build a New Mandir for easy access. This shrine believed to have wish-fulfilling powers along with that Baba is still guarding the international border between India and China. On Sundays, a 'Langar' runs at the temple, which provides free meals to the visitors.

Thanks to NatureWings for providing a magnificent Sikkim Darjeeling Package for my family. 2 nights Gangtok, 2 nights Darjeeling and 1 night at kalimpong during 1 march to 6 March 20. The best thing of the arrangement was that they have provided the superior accommodation and vehicle. At every moment during tour their representative was in touch with us for the every help and guidance. What they have offered during booking, they were committed to that and arranged nicely keeping the view of rain and weather. The drivers were polite and punctual of time. Thanks for Inderjeet and Arpan to customize the requirements within my budget. I recommend that whenever anyone plan for a NE tour, then have a word with nature wings. They have expertise in customising the package within budget and beyond expectations.
The trip (Gangtok & Pelling) was very well arranged by Mr Indrajit from NatureWings. The hotels booked were very good .

It was a amazing trip. I liked the way you are planning. Hotels and drivers were very good.But there was only one thing which is not good and the thing is the wastage of food at the hotel in gangtok.They should ask their customers for their requirement of food.
