Travel Companion on Sikkim Trip

Hello All,
There had been an overwhelming response on traveling to Sikkim recently. Traveling to Northern Sikkim is expensive if you are going alone or with a small group. The main purpose of this thread is helping you cost cutting your entire travel budget.

You can post your date of travel with contact details and May be you can find travel companions for sharing your expenses.

In the first glance sikkim’s capital would look functional sprawl of multistorey concrete boxes,steeply layered along a sharp mountain ridge.Views are inspiring in clear weather conditions with Khangchendzonga standing with its pointy white nose above the western horizon.Gangtok serves as a one day sighting tour to Nathula pass,Chomgo lake.
