After our semester exams, we had a long summer vacation. But before going to our respective homes, I, along with some of my close friends, decided to go for a trip. We had a lot of arguments regarding the destination to be covered. But thanks to the common passion about trekking amongst all my friends, that we finally decided to visit a hill station. We decided that Gangtok would be the best for us since it would suit our budget.
I used the hotel and flight booking Sikkim app downloaded in my smartphone to plan the entire trip. We chose to travel via train because first of all, it would suit our budget. Secondly, we wanted to experience the joy of covering a long distance via train. We boarded the YPRQKYQ Express at around 3.45 pm from the Chennai Central station. We had packed our bags with books, walkmans and other necessary stuff because we knew it was going to be a very long journey, around two and a half days, to be precise.
