About Your Host
From NJP to Aritar is a drive of about 4 hours. You have to drive to Ranpo where you cross the border and enter Sikkim from Bengal. Take a less-traveled path from here which will pass through Rorathang and Rhenok to reach our Home Lodge at Aritar.
If you are coming from Kalimpong, you can travel via Pedong – Reshi, and Rhenok to reach Aritar. Guests going from Aritar to Gangtok or coming from Gangtok to Aritar may drive to Rangpo and then take the same route as suggested for guests traveling from NJP, the alternative route is to take a detour from the national highway at Ranipool near Gangtok and Pakyong bound road. Both roads will take you to Aritar by covering a similar distance of about 70 km.
