Our Sikkim tour was almost ended. We were to head to Darjeeling today. Today the day was kept for only travelling. We could check out the hotel by 12 PM. So we thought of clicking some more pics. Sikkim is very beautiful. It has beautiful flowers in vases all over the streets.
We checked out by 12. We headed to the taxi stand . As we were on tight schedule and budget, we went by shared cab to Darjeeling. The road is like, you take share cab till SNT and then another shared cab to Darjeeling. We reached Darjeeling by 7 PM. We headed straight to our hotel. The driver dropped us at the local taxi stand at Darjeeling. Our hotel was booked near to the main local market. We walked up the hill with our strolers and while on the way we shopped little. I got Darjeeling stole (INR 120) each. I got 3 for gifting.
We had booked the hotel through Goibibo. They did a huge blunder. They allotted our rooms to other guests. Since it was peak season, many of the families were also facing the same problem. There was lot of chaos. After a day’s tiring journey, we were very exhausted and still managed to fight for long. But we were not given any rooms, They shifted us to the hotel next to the hotel we had booked.
They provided us complimentary dinner and breakfast. We were very close to the market. So after dinner, we went to the market, and booked 3 point tour at four early morning.
Day was not that good. We were tired travelling and also hotel chaos. I was really missing Sikkim. We slept early as we had to wake up at 4 AM.
