Excellent Travelogue Point Zero with some really good clicks !! I just relived the memories of my trip to West Sikkim earlier in 2016 with my then 3 month old son.

According to me, the icing on the cake w.r.t. your trip was the fresh Snowfall that you came across at Barsey which must have been an awesome experience in it's own self. Rated it a Well Deserved 5*

Sharing some random pictures from my trip to West Sikkim : Link :http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...kkim-baby.html (Exploring West Sikkim with a Baby) :

Sikkim all around is beautiful and going through such travelogues just instigates the want to do a trip to Sikkim, yet once again and again and again !!

While the pictures are great, the videos you have posted provide the thrills. Narrow mountain roads with loose surfaces and sheer drops on the sides - so typical of the north-eastern states.

Coming to cars, the no-frills Bolero still rules when it comes to remote places. Don't think that will change very soon.
Thanks Aditya,
It was very unexpected snowfall, otherwise I could have taken my SJCAM with me with waterproof casing to record the trekking path. And I feel very confident when I do some remote trip only because of the Bolero.

That brings me to your Tawang travelogue. Which again was stupendous for details. Your travelogue had helped me a lot during my planning phase for Tawang.

Great effort. Drive safe.
Thanks dhanushmenon.

Arunachal is surely very beautiful and adventurous because of it's virginity. But Sikkim has it's own beauty in different season. I have traveled so many times to Sikkim but still whenever I plan for any trip, Sikkim comes at the top in my list. Specially I love people living there, they are very sweet and humble.

Thanks Arav Da,
I saw your travelogue with 3 month baby. You really have a brave heart. You are right, day by day I am being addicted to Sikkim
