It was like a normal day at office. Me and my colleague (my senior actually), Dilip Da, went for a smoke as usual at our regular interval. It was already mid of November, but the cold breeze was still missing. Dilip Da being an ardent travel lover, our wavelength matches to a great extent. We always keep discussing about travelling. He used to be a trekker and did a lots of treks, but nowadays after getting married, it’s been a long time he took up any trek since then. He was really anxious to go somewhere, as this Puja...Read More
Staying at Hee Gaon (Hee Patal) proved to be an unique experience for us. It was only after reaching there we understood, why Dipankar Da was constantly insisting us for staying there. Although we have been to Pelling, Hee and even Chaya Taal on our previous trip to South & West Sikkim, but then it was a touch & go type. Staying where was a unique charm which can’t be explained but only felt. This Trip Report is a continuation from Wandering Through Namchi – Ravangla – Yuksom. Below is the full itinerary again for your reference… Day 1...Read More
Though I have been to Ravangla before, for a touch & go sightseeing while going from Pelling to Borong on our last trip to South & West Sikkim. But I never thought I’d be coming here again, and that also for a night halt.

We already had plans to explore Namchi too on our last visit to South & West Sikkim, but...Read More
I came to know about Silk Route first time from various trip reports in IndiaMike long back. And since then the idea to explore this part of Sikkim was in mind, but couldn’t materialize it somehow due to other assignments. I have been to North Sikkim, South Sikkim and West Sikkim previously, so I had fair enough idea about Sikkim but not Silk Route which constitutes the East part of Sikkim. Though we were aware that there would be huge rush in Puja vacations, but this year I had already extinguished so much leaves, as practically I was on...Read More
Goa was neither on my wish list nor I had any plans to visit Goa. My nephew Avijit and a common friend of ours had planned for Goa preliminary. But at last moment, (un)fortunately, our friend blessed with the news of soon to be dad!! And thus he had to back out in-spite of his no-refund bookings. Left with no other options my nephew, Avijit, as always, approached me to be his partner in crime. Because without some other known person, his parents are never going to allow him alone with his girlfriend for a 5 day trip that...Read More
