Default This was an excellent travelogue !!!

Saurabh !!!
First and foremost I would like to congratulate you for successfully completing this picturesque journey. Pics were awesome & inviting. Your narration kept me glued to the story. Thanks for sharing it with all of us here.
Fabulous . . . simply fabulous.
After reading your travelogue, I have started to get into the mood to drive up to Gangtok on the "Silver Surf". However, my drive, if it ever materialises, would be of different proportions as I would have to start from Bangalore.
Well, in case I do make up my mind & am able to convince my wife, shall be contacting you regarding the route & hotels.

Thanks Kaustav. Since you will be driving down (or is it up?) all the way from Bangalore, would suggest that you include some more places in Sikkim rather than Gangtok alone. Would be worth the effort.

Please feel free to get in touch regarding route and probable staying options.

Hi Saurabh,

Wonderfully written and photographed travelogue. You seem to be equally adept at weilding the pen (keyboard !!) as well as the steering wheel !

Hey, Saurabh..will it be possible for you to share with me the Ravangla resort's contact details? Me & my wifey are planning a trip and it would help a lot.

Thanks & drive safe !
