Gangtok Images of Different Places

Gangtok is one of the most beautiful place of my journey. My journey for gangtok starts with the 30 hours travelling from Bhubaneshwar to Siliguri from train,  Bhubaneshwar to Kolkata , Kolkata to Siliguri by bus and finally we reach Siliguri and headed toward Gangtok with car .

Its about 5 pm, the roads are single way road with both side having natural view of trees , mountains and waterfalls. I was feeling like i am going to fill one of the dreams to go a place like this. We are going on the temperaure of 30°c to 28°c in Kolkata, 16°c  in Siliguri and 8°c  in Gangtok and 0°c in Nathula pass.

Its been 6 pm, it was all dark, sun was set to go than the most magical scenery happend. The houses in the mountains seems more like stars on the ground. It was so beautiful and magical that i would not belive in my eyes. we reached our hotel ‘Hotel REE-GHANG’ about 8:30 . The rooms of the hotel do not have any fans. It was so cold.

I woke up at 5 am and the sun rised. The wood houses, the mountains, the whole surrounding was so bothing and fresh. I asked myself why i am living in the crowded places.
