“once is not enough”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

A slow pace is what it takes to enjoy the vast variety of all the region has to offer. From the old flair shawl stores, the rare photographs from earlier times, the souvenirs and the up to date climber's equipment to the rather modern coffee shop with bakery where all the foreigners like to chat over the awesome view from your table, especially when it starts raining furiously all of a sudden. And once you've been there, it's not enough, you'll have to come back.

“Great main square with free wifi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

Free wifi and buzzing with activity and horse and donkeys for the children to ride, some nice nepali and tibetan jewelry shops next to the police station and the only decent coffee at Coffee Cafe Day nearby, the food stall that lead off to the right of the square are cheap and tasty with food cooked right in front of you so excellent value for money. The Golden Tips tea shop in the square is reasonably priced and has all the local teas available plus tea sets etc The square is a great place to hang out having a mix of locals and tourists and best of all free wifi that actually works !

“Om Sai Baba Travels in NJP is totally fraud please stay away from them.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

I visited with my family for North Sikkim tour. When i got down from the train an agent of that concern told that they will charge Rs. 1300/- for gangtok drop...when we went they learned our tour plan and set a Rs 4200/- per head plan for the whole tour with breakfast lunch dinner in north sikkim...but they didnot provide us lunch and the car and hotel provided by them was also very bad....booking their spoiled our whole tour...please beware of that travelling agent and their agent Babai Dutta.

“The Hub of Darjeeling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

Has the perfect charm that any hill station should have. A view of the Kanchunjunga with hot momo's makes this perfect.
