My short trip to pelling started from Darjelling at 10am on 21 oct 2015 on Xylo . 6 familiy member including my in laws of 77+..
Road after the Darjeeling Zoo is quite narrow and broken in few stretches. But with xylo , no problem. try to take Xylo, innova, or SUV. Tata sumo is not comfortable.
Temp is normal in day. slightly more cold in night around 10 deg Cnt. climate shoothing. . its 75 km .

on the way we have seen Jamuney, pasupati nepal border if you plan to purchase it take 2 hrs; we had small lunch at Reshi.

during jounrney Fantastic tea gardens, (goodriche) , road side river , small streams coming down, full of flora and fauna.

Reached pelling at 3pm. Stayed in 4 & 5 . Welcome by hotel staff, specially By Mr Vijay , manger hailing from Midnapore. we got into room 4 and 5 . bed and breakfast as we booked. if you book in prior , a discount also can be negotiated as applicable.

This hotel is beautifully decorated, belongs to Mr Yongda nephew of Film artist Danny (as heard ) . Total around 8 Floor. Fantastic mountain view in the early morning with black darjeeling tea , the great kanchenjunga unfolding its color. Lots of peak around. Oh pelling and hotel phamrong.(tusi great ho!!!)

Rooms are cosy, cottage type with cane wall covering, wooden floor, geyser, all room service available. excellent hospitality . Wonderful dining place in the ground floor.
the location of hotel is at zero point . helipad at 1km up. further up is the sangacholing monastery. with strong walking foot one can manage.

0n 22 oct we set out for Yoksam , earlier capital of sikkim in a brand new xylo, thanks to Vijay , . he can manage anything as requested. Tour may please be started at the earliest by 8 am .
On the way the first is darap , then one by one - rimbi water falls , kanchenjungha water falls, yoksam helipad, dubdi monastery, (lunch inbetween at yoksam) , in return journey Kathog lake, Khechupalri lake, by the time it is almost 4 pm.

on 22 oct we visited ranbdentse ruins , small trekking through dense jungle, birds , sudden rain made it more enjoyable. Left pelling by 10 am for NJP . on the way a short halt in Kirateswar Mandir and wet your foot in river rangeet, makes your journey a memorable one.

Room tip: Room 4 and 5 mountain view. having balcony in between with lots of antics .

I stayed here at Hotel Phamrong with my family. Hotel Phamrong is located tactically at upper Pelling, just opposite to SBI ATM . Look of mount Kanchenjunga for view rooms as they provide great view of the mountain range. The manager was very cooperative and provided good services. The sun rise from the hotel room was mesmerizing. One can also go to the terrace and enjoy the beauty of the mountain range.

Room tip: Top floor rooms give a clear view of mount Kanchenjunga

Stayed at the place for one night and this place really impressed me with its service. The bathrooms may be small but the room is nicely designed as is the lobby and the other parts of the hotel. The sitting area on the second floor is an interesting detail and really appreciable if you are travelling in a group. There was a big storm in the evening with glass windows getting shattered and the whole of Sikkim not having electricity even the next day. But the management provided extra blanket on being asked and also had invertors. The next morning because of the blackout, there wasn't any water. But the management gain provided water in buckets. Great service provided.
Look for view rooms as they provide great view of the mountain range.

I stayed here during October 2014. Hotel phamrong is located strategically at upper pelling, just opposite to SBI ATM and couple of car rentals. It is possible to walk down to the best attraction of Pelling, i.e., pemayangtse monastery. I booked this hotel using their website which is outsourced to ezeecloud. During booking I was told that this 5 storey hotel has an elevator, which was a key criteria for me as I had 2 senior citizens travelling with me. On reaching the hotel, I realized that none of the hotel in Pelling has an elevator (as told by Phamrong's hotel manager). We however managed one room in 1st floor and another at 4th floor. the 4th floor room had an adjoining terrace which had broken glasses everywhere and could of broken chairs!! Restuarant was on the basement, so lunch and dinner was quite an exercise. Room was large (I booked a suite room), but very shabbily organized. Overall, would recommend to look for alternatives if you can. Not worth the money paid!!

Room tip: Top floor rooms have good viewfrom the adjoining terrace, just make sure you look at the broken glasses around :-)

I liked the hotel and though it is small, you felt at home. Rooms are not high class and you do not complain because the best scenery is outside the room. Food is OK though I found the restaurant very dimly lit and short of moving space. Location is A Class just opposite to the ATM of SBI.

Room tip: Stay in rooms facing back side for instance room no 5. The numbers have no logic so ask for rooms facing back side so you have a breathtaking view of the mountains. In case you do not get, you can come to the lobby and enjoy the morning scenery.
