Not like any other easily accessible destinations, silk route is considered as a remote but pristine tourist destination with limited modern facilities and amenities. This is the most distinctive part of this location. Some travelers may have fancy conception regarding foods, facilities, amenities and hotel rooms of this place. So let’s understand first some basic facts that you must know before travelling here.
→ Pickup timing from Bagdogra Airport or NJP/Siliguri Station should be between 7am to 3pm. If any traveler is arriving this pickup point after that schedule, he/she need to stay at NJP/Siliguri hotel as the travel journey is long and tiresome. So let’s NatureIngs know your perfect arrival timing, so that we can pick you up and transfer you to the first destination i.e. SilleryGaon, almost 100km or 4-5 hrs journey depending upon the traffic, road and weather condition in the region.

"This is my first Silk Route Tour with Ravangla with NatureWings and this was a fabulous trip. The cab driver Mr. Ganesh who was the key person in making this trip awsome. I would recommend anybody to book their vacations through NatureWings."
"NATUREWINGS organasied our Silk Route Tour on last November 18 with transport and staying and they did provide some real good homestays with excellent food. The office staffs, especially AKASH DUTTA did help a lot through out the tour and before journey uncertainties were taken care and solved.
The organised the most beautiful homestay in most of the places, especially the homestay at upper Mankhim was such a bliss... I would request them to rethink about the ZULUK staying as it was not upto the mark at all.
We had some issues with delayed pick up and change of driver with the car but it ended happily...we were there during Diwali so they had their own emotional engagement. But it seemed managing car is a problem to most of the tourist as you cannot communicate with them when its needed. Bur we did have a safe journey.
overall the experience was good but apart from AKASH we did not get the needed communication from anyone from the agency.But it is such a great place and tour to remember these things...I wish them good luck."
"Thnks Naturewings and specially Thank you Avijit for your hospitality ...
Our trip was so well designed by you that we traveled entire silk route with ease. Home stay where we staid for over night halt were awesome and received a warm welcome from the house owners. Views from home stay were so so mesmerizing that we can't describe with our words .... Very well designed in a very very short time span ... We are very very happy ... every single rupee of our expense was worth while. we give a big big thanks to dear AVIJIT and also Akash of NATUREWINGS who always staid connected to us during the trip ... thanks guys .. you have a great experience ..."
