The chances of snow in North Sikkim during the month of October is quite less, since October is considered to be the post-monsoon season. However, tourists can visit Zero point and Gurudongmar as these places might remain snow covered during October.

Sikkim Package Reviews

I recently book a trip in October with Nature Wings after reading a lot of positive feedback especially their expertise in East Sikkim. Our plan was for 7N/8D covering North and East Sikkim. Through out my journey in North, every day i used to get calls from them inquiring about the travel comfort, stay etc. I was really surprised by that, but the joy did not last much once we started the East Sikkim trip. From handling of Permits,coordinating with driver, calling his friend to pass on all my details via whats app to get the permit on time was a real pain. This happened in-spite me providing all details on whats app and email at least 10 days prior to travel. On top of that when we reached Zuluk, the home stay guy said there was no communication given to them via phone or email about my stay. Luckily for us another family could not make it and we were allotted their room. Otherwise i would have to look for another place. Overall there were a bit of hick ups covering East as there was no coordinator like we had in South. For the price we are paying i would expect a much better service. Luckily the drivers were damn good and down to earth. From stay perceptive ... more
We recently visited Pelling, Kaluk and Ravangla through Naturewings. The way they planned the trip was amazing and all their arrangements were outstanding. Booked us in the best possible hotels with amazing view within reasonable price. I highly recommend Naturewings and I promise i will do future trips through them.
Had a wonderful tour of Gangtok, Pelling and Darjeeling. Nature wings staff were very helpful and cooperative. I would like to thank Mr Indrajit Kar, especially for his help throughout our tour.
We just returned from the west Sikkim tour, packaged and arranged by ‘Naturewings’; route Gangtok – Kaluk - Pelling – Ravangla. Can’t wait to share few things here…the driver we got, was an experienced young locale chap, who knows the hills very well. He shared his little tips as a guide beyond just driving. Quality of the hotels were very high class. We got warm and comfortable rooms, along with the hot and fresh foods. Their hospitality touched our mind. The package was beyond our expectations within this price range. Overall, it was a life time experience for me and my family. We will look forward for more tours from ‘Naturewings’ in the future, for sure.
Recently went to West Sikkim - Ravangla, kaluk and Pelling through Naturewings. Thanks to excellent coordination by Sri Indrajeet Kar, the trip turned out to be a memorable one.The car provided was in nice shape and the driver very cooperative and amiable. All hotels/Resorts provided, especially the Mandarin Resort at Kaluk, afforded breathtaking view of Kanchenjunga along with warm hospitality and nice, hygienic food. The tour schedule, hotel vouchers, car details were intimated well in time beforehand and strictly followed. All in all a big thumbs up for Naturewings - Highly recommended.
