"We have just completed our West Sikkim Trip with Naturewings today. Enroute we have visited Kaluk , Uttarey , Borong , Ravangla , Namchi etc. All the places are full of scenic beauty. Our trip with Naturewings is simply wonderful. They will always give you the best accomodation and transport with reasonable package cost. The Ghonday Resort at Kaluk is one of the best resort I have ever visited. The cars were also comfortable and having expert drivers.

"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."
