Thanks Mithun Da & Arav Da.

Kolkata TBHP members are now doing weekend trip to Sikkim regularly and you are one of the frequent travelers. I tried to add some different flavor in it . Thanks again for so much appreciation.

What a treat to eyes Tutai. The camping place looks out of the world. The pictures as usual coming from you have to be splendid. Sikkim has a lot to offer & you never get bored of it.

Your travelogues add a lot of value to the forum.

Keep Travelling & Keep Writing

Regards,

Pawan

I never calculate any mileage for any particular trip. Overall I get 13 KMPL with 100% AC (City + Highway + Hill + ... ) .

Hi, I don't post often, I don't post at all. I've done a few road trips in the last few years, the one from Noida to Bhutan is the standout one in my life.

I have a few questions for you, Point Zero,sir (apologies, for not knowing your real name).
I'm planning a trip to South Sikkim (March 2018), namely, Gangtok, Ravangla and Pelling. I only have 7 days, so I need to make do with what I have.

I start my journey from Siliguri, that's where my flight lands from Delhi. And I plan to take a rental car (I think, I'll use ZoomCar), and from their drive till Gangtok and then the othe two places.

I don't really have a great idea as to the terrain in Sikkim. I'm planning to rent a Figo or a swift as I think these compact cars will be fine for the hilly drives. Although, the Ecosport is an option as well. Do you feel, the hatchbacks would be a better option or would the Ecosport be a better car?

I'm only travelling with one more person (girlfriend) and she doesn't drive, so I'll be doing the driving.

So, basically, I need some guidance on this

1. The car type - Should I go for a hatchback or for the Ecosport?

I'm sorry if the question is vague or even kiddish, but it would be great if you could help me out.


Thank you,
Raghav

Hi RaghavKuthiala,

1st - my real name is Tutai Kumar Dalal, However it does not matter too much in the forum, so don't worry.

2nd - Gangtok is in East Sikkim, Ravangla is in South Sikkim and Pelling is in West Sikkim. 7 days is enough for these place including drive time but the places you are planing are in three different side.

3rd - hatchbacks or ES both are okay for the places. Roads are very unpredictable in Sikkim, but these three place are very popular places and in general you can expect good roads. Only you can get some bad stretch before Jorethang because of road construction work.
