Gangtok sight seeing

Hi

I am travelling with my husband to Gangtok from 29th June untill 3rd July . Wanted your opinion whether staying in Gangtok is more advisable or we can cover some other places as well ?Also , if you can advise whether Psongo lake and Nathu La pass is accessible at this point of time as we are planning to book our package in advance ? Now considering the weather conditions , what other places do you think we can see in Gangtok.

Any other suggestion for local travel agent in Gantok who can help us book the complete sight seeing package.

Thanks,

Nishu

Thanks.,

The itinerary can be as follows :

Day1 Arrival at Bagdogra & transfer Gangtok (4hrs). Stroll around M.G.Marg,

Day2 Gangtok. - Nathula, Baba Mandir, Tsomgo Lake.

Day3 To Pelling via Ravangla (4.5hrs).

Day4 Pelling - Darap Village, Change Waterfalls, Rimbi Waterfalls, Rock Garden, Kunchenjungha Water Falls and Khecheopalri Lake. After lunch visit Pemayangtse Monastery, Helipad View Point, Rubduntse Palace Ruins and Bird Sanctuary

Day5 Pelling To Bagdogra/NJP.

Now Sikkim is over loaded of tourists. There is no room, scarecity of vehicles, most of the travel related people are taking advantage of the crisis.

However, you may contact the following agents for travel help

Thanks Mr Roy!

I am only there for 4 Nights, hence the above may not be suitable as per my schedule.

Do you know if Nathu La & Psongo lake is open for visitors at this time.
