@Rangeri see this as the next destination :D .. how difficult is the terrain overall? During my Spiti trip i found driving post 9pm towards reckong peo to be the toughest and post sunset at Hikkim/Koumik... When you were describing the roads my brain was remembering these roads ...

So you took Mirik route only to go towards Nepal is it?

What was total km covered?

Duster got new tyres before the trip (they look fresh :) ).

How commercial is sikkim compared to shimla and manali (not the spiti valley)?

I would say, it is better than Spiti valley. 
But the problem is timing, In December this terrain is difficult compared to Spiti (in summer, Monsoon)
4x4 with snow chains is a must in December.

NE is opposite to commercial.

My next trip would be somewhere around Arunachal Pradesh. 
At least in December, very few tourists. 
Our car is the only self drive car. Most of them are cabs, very limited in number.
