    Great trip
    Great location and comfortable crowd. The food was ok. Washrooms were there but not v equipped as expected in an adventure trip. Homestay people were very good and make a comfortable stay. Overall a good comfortable adventure trip to make.

    Exhilarating!!
    We are a family of 4x4 enthusiasts and this trip was worth every buck and more. The vistas you witness along the drive and from the top cannot be explained in words. Just experience it if you have no health issues, are a thrill lover and planning a trip to Darjeeling. This was the highlight of our 10 day Sikkim Darjeeling trip and the terrain we drove on sits much high from what we have experienced till date. We did same day return trip from Maneybhanjan to Sandakpur/ Sandakphu costing Rs 5500 plus Rs 450 vehicle entry charges plus Rs 200 per person cost. The experience is beyond words and must do for all nature lovers. This is the highest point of West Bengal overlooking the mighty Himalayas including Mt Everest and Kanchenjunga. The way up goes through Nepal and that adds to the fun factor.

Sandakphu is a fascinating place amongst the Himalayan Mountain Range. Every trekker can begin trekking journey to Sandakphu as the difficulty is easy/moderate. The standard itinerary is Tonglu/Tumling-Kalipokhri-Sadakphu-Gurdum-Srikhola. Dhotrey, Phalut Gorkhey can also be added to the itinerary depending on the trip days.

Some really bad and outdated jeeps(named land rovers) work here. And again the same reason- unions....atleast get some good card people... The road to tonglu is excellent condition. Rates and charges have showed in photo. U can reach manebhanjan and the take this. Avoid the homestays, they are extremely poor condition and widely used without much cleanliness. Bed bugs, and similar problems cant be rules out. But views, sunrise, sunsets are beautiful.
