Bagdogra to Pelling via namchi
Save

Hi!

I am planning to visit Pelling in first week of March 22.

I will land at bagdogra at around 10 in the morning.

Is it possible to go directly to Pelling covering namchi and ravangla?

Also on second day, can we so half day sightseeing and proceed to gangtok?

You can go from Bagdogra to Pelling via Namchi and Ravangla, It will take approx 7-8 hrs (with sightseeing). Since your arrival time is 10 a.m. it is possible.

its not possible to cover Namchi and ravangla Sightseeing on the same day while coming from Bagdogra to pelling.

you can cover only if you don't mind travelling at night and hectic travelling.

Roads are bearable.. ongoing repair work on NH10 connecting to Sikkim.You can hardly call it off-roading.

D1 - Bagdogra - Namchi Sightseeing - Pelling

D2 Halfday Pelling - Ravangla Buddha Park - Gangtok

^^ This is the way to go..
