Important Notes

2. For an Extra Person Sharing the Room and Child with Extra Bed, almost all the hotels of this area provide MATTRESS and ROLL OVERS as a supplement to Extra Bed.

3. In this area almost all the hotels do not have lifts, so you will have to climb stairs to reach the rooms. In case you have problems with blood pressure, breathing, heart, and knees or if you cannot climb higher floors, we will request you to report this problem immediately so that we are careful in assigning Hotels which will be more convenient than the ones quoted/reserved for you.

4. In a hilly area scarcity of water and electricity is a natural phenomenon. Everybody buys water for their day-to-day needs and have learnt to live even without electricity. In case of Load Shedding, kindly bear with such situation. To overcome the water crisis certain hotels have fixed schedule for supplying hot & cold water. We sincerely regret the inconvenience.

5. Hotels have a system of providing room heater on request that requires extra payment. This payment is not included in the cost and you will have to settle it directly with the hotels before check-out. The charge varies from INR 150.00 to INR 200.00 per room per night.

6. The vehicle used will not be at disposal and will be exclusively used for the group as per the itinerary only (on point to point basis). It will change sector wise.

7. As the area is backward and due to unwritten syndicate rules your vehicle and drivers will change for every transfer & sightseeing. These drivers come from remote places and are not educated in tourism etiquette and some of them do not know how to speak and behave. Kindly request the guest to be soft and gentle with their drivers.

8. Often in the past, guests have been misguided by such drivers. We would like to inform you not to listen to such people and confirm whatever they say with your File Handling Executive (FHE).

9. As the vehicles and drivers change always we will request you to be very careful with your personal belongings. Once left in the vehicle there is almost nil or little chance of getting them back.

10. Certain sightseeing areas are totally controlled by the syndicate and we do not have any say over such services. We will request you to bear with such uncalculated situations. Their FHE will guide you on such services e.g. Tshangu Lake, Nathula, packages to North Sikkim etc. Especially while using such services you will have to be gentle in dealing with the drivers due to lack of their exposure to the tourism industry and practices they sometimes tend to get annoyed and may misbehave.

11. Since Nathula is a restricted area and gets sealed, without any notice, for security reasons. In such cases your tour will only be till Tshangu Lake and there will be no refund for unutilized services.

12. Due to shortage in space for parking, please be informed that you will have to be ready on time and wait in the lobby. Due to uncalculated situations the vehicle reporting may get delayed. We will request you to bear with us and as soon as the vehicle arrives you will have to get in within a few seconds, before the policeman blows his whistle.

13. Due to vehicle-parking difficulty in the whole area, most of the areas are restricted to entry of vehicle and specific time is allotted for entries. Kindly follow the time strictly as given to you. In case of delays the vehicle will have to leave the hotel area without you and get parked in a parking area. In such a case, you will have to be transferred in a Maruti Van FOR WHICH THE COST WILL HAVE TO BE BORNE BY YOU & WILL HAVE TO BE COLLECTED DIRECTLY FROM YOU.

14. Due to specified time for entry, many times your connecting destination vehicle may not be allowed to enter the town / hotel area. Under such circumstances you will be transferred from the stand to the hotel in Maruti Vans for which the driver of your connecting vehicle will make the payment.

15. The area is backward but rich in Nature and the facilities available cannot be matched to those available in the Plains and other developed destinations. We strongly regret this constraint of the area.

16. Please note that our Executive will hold a placard as advised by you, just outside the only exit gate of Bagdogra Airport.

17. In case you are arriving at NJP Railway station which has 03 entry and exit gates, please be informed that you will meet our Office Executive at the old exit gate (which happens to be the main gate that houses the Army Counter) holding a placard in your name / or as advised by you.

18. Sikkim and Darjeeling are hilly areas and change in weather is a regular feature. It is advisable to carry light layers of clothing always. During winter it is advisable to carry heavy woolens.

19. Landslide is a common occurrence in hilly areas. EXPENSES INCURRED FOR DIVERSION, DUE TO THIS OR ANY OTHER REASONS WILL BE COLLECTED DIRECTLY AS PER ACTUAL EXPENDITURE INCURRED.

20. Kindly be informed that we make contingency plans so that the sightseeing points do not fall on a closing day. In case, due to some inevitable situation if the sightseeing falls on a closing day, it will have to be left out and cannot be carried forward to the next day. If you want to take the left out part of the tour on the next day, you will have to pay extra against the vehicle charges as advised by the File Handling Executive (FHE).

21. People with heart, blood pressure, and knee problems and those having children below 05 years of age should avoid going to Nathula, Gurudongmar & Yumosomdong (Zero Point) as it could be of high risk and medical facility is also very poor.

22. High Mountain sightseeing such as Tshangu Lake, Yumthang Excursion, Gurudongmar Excursion has to start early in the morning so that you can return early. This is designed for your security as in the afternoon the weather gets cloudy and foggy throughout the year.

23. Due to non-availability of night life the whole area goes to bed early and wakes up early. We request you to go to bed on time so that next day you can start your tour early.

24. People availing the services to Nathula, Tshangu Lake, and North Sikkim (Lachung, Yumthang Excursion, Yumosomdong (Zero Point), Katau, Lachen, Chopta Valley & Gurudongmar Excursion) are requested to bring along with them : a) 04 passport size photographs of each member travelling whether Adult or Children with their name written behind each photograph.

The smaller envelope holding the details familywise will have to be put together into a bigger envelope for all families and then sealed with UD Number written on top. For North Sikkim it should be a separate envelope and for Tshangu Lake it should be a separate envelope. After reaching Gangtok, this document has to be handed over at the hotel counter and the information on doing so has to be passed over the telephone to the FHE.
