Important Note:

  • Drop to Bagdogra Airport is at 1 PM, please book your departure flight/train accordingly.

What’s a DIY Trip?: Our DIY trips are highly curated itineraries, which are prepared by our experts keeping in mind the travel preference and travel styles mentioned by our members aka ‘Roamers’. These trips are without trip leaders. However, worry not! We will do all the bookings, transportation and activities arrangement to make sure you are having a hassle free and fun holiday! We only take registrations from like-minded Roamers, making sure that they are the right fit in the group and so they are very affordable and a lot more fun. 

Physical Level: While the tour itself is not very strenuous, please note that it can involve the following: somewhat long days, a good amount of walking, long journeys by private vehicle or train, early morning wake-ups and other similarly challenging scenarios.

Subject to Change: Please keep in mind that the above itinerary and activities are subject to change. Travel sometime involves unexpected situations so things might need to be re-arranged at times. However, it is important to remember that travel is all about the journey, and so even the unexpected situations we may face should be treated as part of the overall experience!

Accommodation: Prices are based on the sharing of rooms and single members of the group will typically be put together. We will be using standard hotels that offer comfortable facilities. All rooms will have a private bathroom. While we always do our best to secure as many rooms with separate beds as possible, sometime two members of the group might have to share a large bed. But that’s all part of the adventure and we guarantee we’ll have a blast anyway. Single supplement is available on this trip at an extra cost of 10,000 INR.

The government of Sikkim issue only limited permits for Nathula pass which is based on the lottery. We will not be liable for any claims or expenses to not cover Nathula pass if we don’t get the permit.
