Hi,

We 4 adults and 2 kids(both below 4 years) have planned a trip to Gangtok and North Sikkim. We will reach Gangtok on 2nd of April and will head towards North Sikkim on 3rd of April. I read somewhere in this forum that one should carry ID proof to visit North Sikkim. Do I have to carry ID proof of kids also. My daughter's age is 2 years and we only have her birth certificate as her ID proof. Can I use that?

No ID proof will be needed for the kids. You should carry 2 passport photos of each adult member and ID proof.

To be on the safe side, try to make it by mid-June. Weather will be favourable. Though there are chances for occasional rains in late hours of day or evening.

You may add Pelling (2nts) and Kalimpong (1nt).
