Where to stay in West Sikkim

If you embark on a hike in West Sikkim, you'll need to stay at one of the villages within the mountainous region. Many visitors choose to start in Pelling City, which offers some mid-range hotels and budget-friendly guesthouses. The remote village of Yuksom serves as the gateway to most West Sikkim's hikes--there, you'll find a comfortable hotel or local guesthouse to use as a base of your trek. Once you leave Yuksom, you'll have difficulty reserving onward accommodations in advance--choose a guesthouse personally when you arrive.
