A lot of times vehicles are not allowed to go up to the hotels in Gangtok which are located in the main town area due to restrictions for vehicle to enter the city during the day time. In such cases the vehicle will drop the guests to the taxi stand and arrange for a local taxi to take them to the hotels.

Few hotels have a system of providing room heater on request & extra payment. Heater charges are not included in the cost & thus you will have to settle it directly with the hotels before check--out. The charges vary from Rs.200.00 to Rs.300.00 per room per night.

In this area most of the hotels do not have lift, The guests will have to climb stairs to reach the rooms. In case they have problems with blood pressure, breathing, knee & heart or if they cannot climb the higher floors, we will request you to report this problem at the time of booking so that we are careful in assigning Hotels which will be more convenient than the ones quoted/reserved.

Drivers come from remote places and are not very educated and may not be able to communicate effectively with the guests.

As the vehicles & drivers change regularly, we request you to be very careful with personal belongings. Once left in the vehicle there is almost nil or little chance of getting them back.

Due to shortage in space for parking at most of the hotels the vehicle may be parked a little away from the entrance of the hotel (specially when your hotel is located in the main town areas).
Sikkim & Darjeeling is a hilly area & change is weather is a regular feature. It is advisable that light layer clothing should be carried always. Sightseeing points in this sector are closed on specific days and we will try and avoid the closure dates, however if because of unavailability of hotels a few sightseeing points are missed then there will be no refund on the tour cost and alternate additional sightseeing will be provided where possible.
