Thank you @sagar, will surely share my story.

Better plan in April to May 1st week. Because eastern Himalaya receives early monsoon sometimes. On that case you may not access north Sikkim. However If you have no plan to visit north Sikkim then you can go. There are lot many things in other parts of Sikkim.

 

Another option to go to Sikkim is in Oct Mid-Nov Mid. post monsoon it looks fabulous..!!

We had been during the second half of May 2016. Our bad luck, just before the week we visited, heavy rain destroyed the connecting bridge b/w north Sikkim & Gnagtok. So we went to other parts of Sikkim. Though weather was good when we visited there(you can see from the snap) but that bridge was not ready then. We planned to visit Gurudongmar Lake, Youmthang Valley. Lachen, Lachung.(All are in North sikkim), which is at around 17.8K ft & its a dream to be there at Gurudongmar. And we were more upset when heard that Gurudongmar Shined in full moon light like never before just a week back before we visited. But our heart filled up with joy when i saw teh mighty kanchunjanga.. and other parts of the Sikkim.!!

Wow very neatly maintained Swift.

10 years and still looks as good as a new one.

Swift will always be a special car for Indians.

#DalLake is very integral part of tourism of Kashmir. Dal lake is misnomer as "Dal" in kashmiri means lake. We found the ecosystem of Dal lake is ecologically very very rich & house to beautiful floras & faunas. Misty peaks of #Pirpanjal mountains are also seen in the background. We were headed towards #Leh, so took a night halt here. 

 

I Watch out this space for more travel stories of our recent trip to Ladakh!! I

As we were taking an evening stroll along the famous Dal Lake, we spotted a vast sheet of water reflecting the carved wooden balconies of the houseboats. We spoke to some locals & got to know that, some of the houseboats there were built in the early 1900s, and are still being rented out to tourists & travellers!!

chembra peak, wayanad

 

Can you provide more details on how to reach the peak.
I heard there is some permission required for the trek.

Difficulty of the trek?
How many kilometers one need to trek?

Hi,

We have done this trip last year and we make sure to cover Chembra peak, so we booked holiday home near to the location (maymorn holiday home) approximately 15 km to Chembra peak.

 

We have started our journey around 7 AM form the room to peak in our own vehicle(Scorpio), but in the middle we find a taxi stand and they suggest us not to take the vehicle upfront because of the road condition. so we hired a commander jeep from there for 700/- and after seeing the road condition we thought that we made good decision.

 

Permission is not a big deal. just we need to give our head count and contact details.They will charge 500/- and send one guide with you for the trek and he will guide us the route. (Need to pay extra for Camera)

we can not carry any plastic to the location. if we are carrying any water bottle we need to pay 100 for each and they will give it back when you come with same count of empty bottle. 

 

Total trek will be approximately 4 km in the middle it will be bit difficult as it was raining and slippery. 

I am sure that you will forget all the difficulties you faced once you reach the top.
