Hi Shrijana and Satish,
First let me apologize for such a late feedback.
Thank you for planning a great trip for us at such a short notice. Your logistics were excellent and so were the vehicles you provided us for both our trips to Nathu La and Gurudongmar.The drivers both Mingma Sherpa and 'Dilu' deserve special mention,for they were without doubt the most hard working people I have seen and that too always with a smile!
You are a very lucky person to be born in such a beautiful place. "Sikkim" we still cant get over the sheer beauty of this place. While Nathu La brought us close to the sheer brutality of the forces of nature our Armed Forces face everyday so that we sleep peacefully, Gurudongmar and Zero Point brought a sense of peace and calm to our Mumbaikar's hectic lifestyles. As they say the journey is more important than the destination, every where that we went we were spellbound by the sheer beauty your state had to offer.
let me make special mention about the 'Lunch' you organized for us in one of the homestay at Namthang called Shisa Hill ( I hope the names are correct) on our way to Lachen, which was a marvelous experience both visually and for the warmth with which we were served one of the most delicious lunches I had in Sikkim!!
Once again thank you for organizing such a wonderful trip for us. I promise to visit you once more as I still got to visit west Sikkim !!!
THANK YOU SHRIJANA, SATISH AND YOUR TEAM !!!!!!!!!
ps: I did have a word with our friend in the Army and he gave the impression that the days when tourists are not allowed at Nathu La are used for Army movements and roads repairs etc. He also mentioned that if anything about it can be done it will have to be at the ministerial level.( I have posted the photographs so that you recognize the place at Namthang and also us!!!)
Back in Bangalore.. ( safe and missing the beautiful hills and mountains!). Thank you so much for making it such a memorable trip. It’s the best vacation I have had with my family ever!
Gurudongmar was scary (with my toddler). With my daughter feeling kind of giddy as we reached the lake. The driver (Prashant) was awesome. He quickly got us down to safety as soon as possible.
Lachung, I don’t have words to explain it!! “Beautiful” is really an understatement. The snow clad mountains on one side and the waterfalls on the other.. God must have been in a really good mood when we was working on Lachung. We just got lucky to see it.. and experience it.
Thank you for organizing the beautiful trip for us!
Feedback On Yak and Yeti
We sat out for a dream tour of Sikkim and Yak and Yeti made it possible for us. We visited places of breathtaking beauty like Gurudomvar Lake, Lachung, Dzongu hills etc and experienced some once in a lifetime achievement bathing a natural hot spring :). The hospitality of Yak and Yeti in Gangtok and throughout our stay in Sikkim has been very warm - they really cared for us and listened to our requests. Dzongu was an off beat destination and they made it possible for us to tour there - it was really incredible and also we liked so much the natural habitat of the Rumtek Jharna resort that we stayed in. Overall experience with has been amazing on this tour. We always would like to go back to Sikkim and Yak and Yeti.
I want to thanks you for very good trip organizing. All taxi drivers come in time to pick us up for the next point. Level and location of all hotels and guesthouses was the same, as I wanted. Jangpo Sherpa is very good guide. We never have been sleeping 2 times in one camp during the trek. Every time Jangpo Sherpa suggested us new place, as we wanted. Cook was so young, but so professional. He suggested us many new testy Sikkim dishes. Helpers and Yakman was very fast and always come to new camp 1-2 hours before us to meet us with hot tea or hot lemon juice. Thank you very much for your trek command and give them Best Regards. And the trek was most beautiful as I have ever seen. Fantastic Rododendron forests and snow peaks! Thank you very much one more time !
I am writing to thank you very very much for arranging the most marvellous and truly memorable visit to Sikkim for us.
I cannot praise highly enough your organisational skills and flexibility.
We arrived in Gangtok a day later than planned due to luggage problems - this did not seem to bother you at all.
You quickly had us booked in to a very nice hotel, and made us feel so very welcome in your office.
The next day, you fixed up a jeep with a very good driver to take us to Yuksom, and booked us into the Tashi-Gang hotel, which we loved.
The team you arranged to take us trekking from Yuksom to Goecha-La was fantastic - Puspa, our guide, was unbelievably hard working and efficient, with excellent English, and did everything he could to make us welcome and ensure that our holiday comfortable and well organised. The cook, Mr Marri Sherpa, managed to consistently produce wonderful food with minimal equipment - his soup was especially good - and the porters/cook boys Phupu Buchia, Phazong Subba and Ranjit Bujel were always cheerful - even when it rained - and worked very hard. We were pleased that you advised us to use Dzo's to carry the baggage - they seemed stronger than the ponies used by other groups and more suited to the job. Babu Bachia and Phedang cared for them very well.
The schedule you organised, with shorter walks on the first few days, allowed us to get acclimatised and improve our fitness gradually ; we both kept very well, and had no problems with altitude sickness. We were delighted to get good views from Dzongri in the early morning, and, a few days later, to make the tough trek to the edge of the Kanchenjunga glacier -Goecha-la Pass, viewpoint 2 - to achieve our ultimate goal - we saw glimpses of the beautiful mountain as the cloud parted around it. It was so exciting and rewarding. We also saw Blue Sheep, and evidence of Snow Leopard, and lots of Himalayan Birds - Puspa was very good at identifying them.
The tents you provided were waterproof and comfortable. When it rained heavily the afternoon after we had trekked to the pass, Puspa very sensibly went down to a hut, so we could all get warm and dry- we really appreciated his local knowledge and sensible decisions.
As we relaxed on the walk back, we enjoyed seeing more beautiful flowers and birds - it was really stunning.
After the trek, we could not believe our luck when Puspa offered to spend more time with us and act as our guide - you kindly arranged a lovely hotel near Pelling and a Jeep with a good driver, and he escorted us round local temples and sightseeing - we appreciated them far more with his input and saw things we would never have found on our own. His friendliness, consideration and courtesy made our holiday the best ever.
This was really the trip of a lifetime for us - I still find it hard to believe that you were able to organise such an excellent trek and good lodgings and sightseeing for us with just a few e-mails - we are recommending Sikkim to all our friends - getting there was quite challenging, but the friendliness and welcome we got from everyone we met made it absolutely worthwhile.
I will send you some photos when I have sorted through them. If you have any clients who would like a chat, I would be more than happy for you to give them my e-mail.
We will keep in touch
Mt. Thingchinkhang, Sikkim, India - 19,718'
By: Tom Ritchie
In October of 2007 CMC member Bruce Kocka organized an expedition to climb Thingchinkhang, a 19,718â€™ (6010m) peak in the Himalayan range that includes Kanchanjunga, the worldâ€™s third highest peak. Thingchinkhang, located in Sikkim , India , had never been climbed by an American. Bruce was joined by CMC member Tom Ritchie and the late Ric DeVan on the joint Indian/American expedition. The slide show starts with a picture of the one mile vertical south face of Thingchinkhang, followed by a jeep ride to Yuksam in Sikkim, a 4 day trek to establish base camp at 14,200â€™, advance base camp at 16,400â€™, camp 1 at 17,400â€™, the climb to the summit, and ends with the American climbers Tom, Ric and Bruce relaxing at 10,000â€™ after their successful summit.
