When you see the heights you have wished for has fallen under your feet suddenly!

When we decided to undertake the mountains:

Walking down the crooked hill slopes, we went to the lap of clouds and our destination was none other than the mini paradise ''Sikkim''!

We started our journey from the capital of Sikkim,''Gangtok''. As far as I can remember it was 9'o' clock back then. We reached hotel. We really didn't have much of plan that day. So we took a bit rest.

As being Bangali,we feel proud to call ourselves gourmands ;) ! So in the afternoon we walked down to MG marg,fortunately it was close to our hotel.So after completing our shopping we came back to hotel.The Sun was still,giving its sweet setting rays to us.

As a result of which we were not wishing to leave that place at all. It was like,we were put gyves on our feet and we were unable to move.

The next day we set out to ''Pelling''. We went across the crooked mountain ways. We saw land slides on both the sides. It was 1'o' clock in the afternoon when we got down at the hotel in Pelling. Unfortunately,this time rain desisted us.We were stuck in the hotel,almost for two days,thriving our thirst to the extreme to taste the outer world. But at last ignoring the downpour we went out to see the Kanchenjunga falls.We also saw Rimbi falls too.

Thus,it is better to say that rain in the mountains touches our heart,truly,it gives you an absolute different taste.

Our Next address was Ravangla. A new feeling of adventure was creeping up in my mind. We stayed in a cottage which was situated high on the hills. Wooden house,sorted and decorated beautiful. The view of the rooms down the balcony was very good. Icing on this beauty was the movement of the clouds over the hills.

I were a bit worried as our cottage was at the top of the hills. The next day we came to Gangtok to see Nathula. India and china border. In spite of tremendous spine chilling cold,the view was awesome !

End of our journey.It was time to return to our home. The next day we got out of the hotel at 7am. Sitting down on our train,Teesta-Torsha Express,we kept reminiscing the memories,beauty of the Changu lake,history of Baba Mandir and the wide spread blue sky over the horizon and the shuttling of clouds under our feet !
