Bagdogra to Gangtok Route Description
You will be travelling through national highway 10 throughout the route. We recommend you keep enough time in hand before you make this journey. The journey is through beautiful hills and forests. As you start from Bagdogra you will soon be passing by Siliguri town, which is the gateway to North East India. Once you cross Siliguri, you will be passing through Mahananda wildlife sanctuary. You will pass The Bengal Safari where you can take a break and go for a safari inside the forest. The Safari is to be booked separately and consult our travel advisor in advance for the waiting charge as you may spend a couple of hours here. Once you cross the Mahananda Wildlife Sanctuary, you will reach Sevok (30 km from the airport) where you will meet the river Teesta. From here your journey through the Bengal hills start. Another couple of hours drive will take you to Rongpo which is the Bengal Sikkim border town. There might be some police checking here before you drive on toward Singtam half an hour away. At Singtam you will leave river Teesta and take an uphill drive towards Ranipool. This small town is technically about 10 km away from Gangtok but the area is dotted with resorts and hotels. The Journey from Ranipool to Gangtok may be quite slow as you will be driving through a Narrow road with no vehicle overtaking and long traffic snarl, especially during business hours and tourist season. As you reach Gangtok our vehicle may drop you at the hotel. Please note that vehicle movement within the city is highly restrictive and there are several rules regarding what vehicle can go where at what time. Often you may have to hire a local small taxi which will take you to your hotel for the last kilometre drive. Consult our travel experts after booking and they will inform you if your hotel's location has any restrictions in place.
