Visit at Darrjeeling/ Gangtok in 4th week of August

Hi

Can Anybody suggest what would be the precautions & things to remember during the visit same in the month of August 2011 along with my wife & 1+ year infant.

What are the main & must seeing places to visit.

I don't want to go religious places (temple/monestry) , will prefer to visit lake / waterfall sun rising / set & snow- points instead of visiting any religious place.

Regards

Alok

I don't think they'll call any strike in August. However, just reach NJP/Bagdogra and if Darjeeling is unstable change your destinations to Pelling and Rabangla. Getting hotel won't be an issue in Aug.

Keep watch in this forum, I will inform if there is any 'Breaking News'.
