Anyone else doing the same route around 3rd or 4th week of october?
I would make a plan like this-
Day 1 Kolkata - Siliguri/ Rongpo
Day 2 Take permit from Rongli proceed to Padamchen/ Zuluk ( Night stay)
Day 3 Zuluk - Gnathang Valley - Kupup lake- Nathula - Changu lake - Gangtok
Day 4 Take permits from Gangtok for North Sikkim
Day 5 Gangtok - Lachen
Day 6 Lachen Gurudombar - Lachung
Day 7 Lachung Yumthang Zero point Singtham
Day 8 Singtham - Kolkata
Heard permits for North Sikkim were not given to hatch backs or sedans last year. Am not very sure about this year. Please take prior information about this and proceed. North Sikkim roads roads are very bad but doable in Swift.
Edit : Just saw its a 2013 thread. Did you do the trip? If yes how was it and please share the details .
