There has been a landslide on the way to North Sikkim. A bridge has been washed away hence North Sikkim (Lachen, Gurudongmar, Lachung, Yumthang) may not be accessible for few days

Hi Jyotimoy G

If you have already booked your tickets then you can do one of the 2 options

Option 1: Gangtok 3N + Darjeeling 2N

Option 2: Gangtok 3N + Pelling 2N

Avoid North Sikkim

Hi, I and my husband have already booked my tickets from 28 sep - 3rd oct 2018.

Our itinerary is : Gangtok 3N - Lachen 1N - Lachung 1N

Will the North Sikkim roads be clear by then? Any idea by when will the roads for North Sikkim be functional?

If yes, how are the roads there? Anything to worry about landslides?
