December will be ideal time for South & West Sikkim. If you are interested in trek, there are some beautiful trek routes also. However, I would suggest to do Darjeeling and Sikkim together, you may try the following itinerary.

Day1 Arrival at Bagdogra & transfer Gangtok. Stroll around M.G.Marg, overnight stay

Day2 Gangtok. - local sight seeing & Tsomgo Lake

Day3 To Pelling via Ravangla.

Day4 Pelling - Pemiyangshe, Kanchanjangha Falls, Khechopalri Lake.

Day5 To Darjeeling, afternoon - roaming around Mall, coffee at Glenery's

Day6 Darjeeling - Tiger Hill, Ghoom Monastery, Toy Train, HMI, Tea Garden

Day7 Darjeeling - day at leisure.

Hi We are 5 people from Bangalore, planning to visit Sikkim in December from 22nd to 27th. The following are the places that we would like to visit :

1: Gangtok

2: Nathula Pass

3: North Sikkim (Mangan, Kabi Longtsok, Chungthang, Lachung, Singhik, Yumthang Valley, Lachen, Thangu, Gurudongmar, )

We are planning to hire a taxi for the trip. Is there a best route or itenary that we can follow to visit these places? More Over can we cover all these places in 7 days? What are the best places to stay at distance wise so that we can visit all these places .

Hi Ashis,

you have not mentioned about yumthang. Can we squeeze it in some where in the itinerary. Nathula and yumthang are pretty important places that we have to visit during this trip.
