Visit of Gangtok from 23rd June to 26th June 2018

Hello friends,

Myself Amarnath Saha, I am planning for a tour to Gangtok along with my family from 23rd June to 26th June 2018.

The place I am planning to go is as under.

23rd June- Local site seeing of gangtok (monastery and MG road etc)

24th June- Nathula Pass, Tsomogo Lake and baba mandir

25th June- Pelling and la chung etc.

26th June- Back to NJP

Pls suggest whether it is safe to going there during that time ? and whether there is heavy rain or landslide during that time?

You are going during monsoon.No one can predict exact weather conditions,but yes expect rains.Land slides are totaly unpredictable,if it continues to rains long,it can occurs any where.When travelling Sikkim during monsoon you have to take call,I had visited once in July 1st week and once in August.its off season so hotels and cabs will be cheaper and easily available on the spot,in the same time it can rains heavily which can spoil your itinerary,if unfortunately landslides happens on your way,may have to wait hours to get clear,stuck in jam.

Its looks you had not done homework properly about location to be visited,Lachung is not a day tour from Gangtok (and also not suggested during monsoon),if you start on 25th,you will return Gangtok on 26tg evening,Pelling need at least 5-6 hr from Gangtok,then another full day to explore and then 6-7 hr to return NJP.You can plan for Ravangla/Namchi on 25th and return directly to NJP on 26th.

Your schedule is too hectic i guess. And moreover pelling and Lachung is not a day tour. U ll have to stay overnight at Lachung... Nathula pass remains closed on Monday and Tuesday. So make sure ur itinerary for Nathula doesn't fall on these dates.

And lastly during rainy season, land slides may occur. Plan accordingly
