Before we embark on the epic journey of Old Silk Route Package Tour, let's understand first what this Old Silk Route actually is. Old Silk Route, also known as the Silk Road, the wondrous Old Silk Route is located in East Sikkim and is considered to be an integral part of the ancient nexus of trade routes that connected India to China. This famous archaic route passes through Lhasa, Nathu La, Jeep La Pass and ultimately to the port of Tamluk, which is presently located in West Bengal, from there the route is through the sea until the land is reached. Discovered by traders in the early first century AD, the Silk Route has become popular as a tourist destination in recent times.

Meet & greet on arrival at NJP/IXB at very first day of Silk Route Package and proceed towards Ramdhura. Ramdhura is a small village, situated at a distance of just around seven to eight kilometers from Delo in Kalimpong and the hamlet is winning hearts by offering a stunning view of the Kanchenjungha and the Teesta river, flowing beneath a majestic green valley. The name Ramdhura is a combination of Ram (of Ramayana) and Dhura, which means village. The village is situated at an altitude of 5000ft, above and a dense forest of pine and other hilly trees and cinchona plantation offers absolute tranquility, which many vacationers look for. Being a small, underdeveloped village, which has caught the limelight very recently, Ramdhura cannot provide you with luxurious accommodation options, but once you reach the place, perhaps those luxuries will not mean much to you since Ramdhura will delight you with its natural treasures by that time.

Day 2 : Ramdhura to Reshikhola [24km / 1hrs]

After breakfast proceeds towards Reshikhola (or Rishi Khola alias Rishikhola) is a small valley situated on the bank of the river Reshi at an altitude of 2,000ft in the Kalimpong subdivision of Darjeeling district.

Tourists can enjoy nature in its purest form here. The resort on the bank of the river gives the sound of a stream with a pure cool breeze that is the right choice for the nature lovers. The place is surrounded by lush green forests and mountains. Tourists can enjoy the luxury of bathing and fishing in the clear Reshi River. Overnight stay at Reshikhola.

"NATUREWINGS organasied our SILKROUT 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."
