Switching trip to Darjeeling

My wife and I were going to travel to north Sikkim but with the recent events there with the earthquake think it would be tough; we certainly hope the area gets back on its feet soon, though.

In lieu of Sikkim we are thinking Darjeeling. A few questions:

- Is it easy to arrange a three day trek in Singalila from there? If so what is a good rate?

- Can anyone recommend any guest lodges?

Thanks very much.

You need 5 days for comfortable trek to : Darjeeling to Manebhanjan by jeep. Trek starts from Manebhanjan > Tonglu(night stay) - Kalipokhri (night stay) - Sandakphu (night stay) - Srikhola (night stay) - Rimbik (night stay) - Darjelling by jeep. Total 5days. Cost Rs.2200/per person/ day. Which includes accommodation, food, porter, guide, transport.

Thank you for the information. Is it not possible to do it in three or four? I have seen four day treks somewhere...

If we aren't able to do this, do you have any recommendations for Darjeeling? We'd like to get out in the country for a bit, anyway.

Thanks for your help! Cheers.

The duration of trek can be reduced by one day, in that case, you have to trek Tonglu to Sandakphu in a day, no night stay at Kalipokhri. You may stay at out Skirts of Darjeeling - Hotel Karmi Farm Holidays (BijonBari) to enjoy local life.
