That was our 2nd day from Kushyem village where spent our first night.
As per the itinerary we were ready by 7.30am .The sky was cloudy & the driver was yet to come to pickup .However after loading all luggage we finally started for “Dzuluk“at around 9 am from “Kushyem” home stay saying a good by to the Hostess.
We finally reached “Rongli” after passing through scenic hills by 10am for making necessary passes for “Dzuluk“. At “Rongli Taxi stand” a lot of tourists were waiting for passes for different tourist destinations within Sikkim and it took almost one hour to get clearance for “Dzuluk“.
The entire journey from “Rongli to Dzuluk” was full of scenic natural beauties. As if an artist has drawn it with his brush dipped in “different colours of paint“.The hills around made a different feel and though the sky was over cast but it was worth getting down and click a picture for a lasting memory.At last we reached “Dzuluk” at around 2 pm . Dzuluk was so beautiful 😍 unless one sees one can’t imagine it’s true scenic beauty.It is still a virgin place not much explored and there are no “Hotels”yet but only “HomeStay”🏡 arrangements here.
“The Silk Route“.
it’s an “Old Trade Route“ connecting India ,Tibet,China & Central Asia.It’s always been a “dream shot” for every Photographer.All through the journey came across Beautiful landscape filled with snow on the way to “Baba Mandir”. A herd of Yak being taken for grazing to still higher altitude by its owner came across our way.Its a Beautiful click from “Nathang Valley” and snow clad mountains on all sides.“Baba Mandir“
The legend says…a soldier named “BabaHarbhajan Singh” during his posting at “Indo-Tibet Boarder“was lost (and yet not found) & soldiers of Indian Army still find his unseen presence “guarding Indo-China boarder” & it’s really so strange.Click from Nathang Valley –snow clad mountains on both sides of the road.We reached the beautiful “Elephant Lake” at “Tukla Valley” at an altitude of about 14000 ft from mean sea level.May be it’s name being Elephant Lake is worth because of it’s shape.
Details of Dzuluk Trip:
“Package Tour”of 3 nights & 4 days covering one night at “Kushyem” & 2 nights at “Dzuluk” is most ideal for people with their busy lifestyle.
“Dzuluk” is quite well approachable (hardly being 150 km away from Siliguri)in West Bengal.
How to reach there :
One can book such trips with many combinations of places to stay through local travel & tours at Siliguri and all these informations are available these days on internet. Reaching Siliguri from any parts of India is easy through rail road or by air(Bagdogra Airport).
I will be really happy if you get little more interactive by giving your views.
