Booked our Silk Route Trip through Naturewings and the experience was very good. Rajkumar & Ankan from Naturewings helped us during the booking and was also available during the entire trip for any support. This is my second trip with Naturewings and would highly recommend them to others. Would definitely plan our next trip with them.
Had the opportunity for an Old Silk Route Tour from NJP (East Sikkim) namely Mankhim, Zuluk, Lungthung and lastly Rongpokhola organised by Naturewings. Our POC Mr Ankan Das, supported by Mr Rajkumar Das made it very crisp with the formalities and this 5N6D trip was just a memorable one. Starting from homely vibes to enjoying our hearts out on the way through some elegant and breathing landscapes from one location to another.. The evenings were made warm with some good snacks service and group fun without any hindrance. It was hard to find a complaint on the service, or quality of food or the friendly nature of the management not only from the Homestays but also from Mr Ankan....
I had a very pleasant experience while exploring Silk Route with NatureWings. Specially mention of Ankan and Anindita as they agreed to all my special requests with regard to food and accommodation and made sure to they are taken of. Must mention that our driver was extremely patient, and it was required as I was travelling with my aged parents. They are very dependable.
We travelled the Silk Route in Sikkim for 5N/6D with NatureWings from 9-14 April, 2023. We enjoyed the trip immensely which was organised by them very carefully. Mr. Rajkumar Hazra and Mr. Ankan Das explained the tour details and answered all our queries promptly. They kept in touch with us on daily basis.
The car and the driver (Mr. LB Tamang), the homestays were all very good. The owners took good care of us. The team led by Buddhaji at Oongking Heem Resort at Rongpokhola deserve special mention for their attention to the smallest details for our comfort. To summarise, I must say that we have found a reliable tour organiser in NatureWings and we would like to travel with them again.
It's a great experience with Naturewings. Thank you Ankan Das and Anindita Roy for help us to complete our Silk Route Trip with your guidance.
One of the best trip of my life. Thanks to Ankan da, Anindita di and Rajkumar da for this awesome Management and Special Thanks to Calbin Da who made our trip special. We Met him as our driver..but now he is more than a friend to us.
This was my dream trip, every collage students think to complete their dream trip but few can execute it. A special thanks to NetureWings company, for them we can execute it successfully. And also thanks for Anindita di and Ankan da and our beloved bro Calbin da, Thank you guys for your help and support. Best part of our trip was the zuluk part.
"This is my first Silk Route Tour with Ravangla with NatureWings and this was a fabulous trip. The cab driver Mr. Ganesh who was the key person in making this trip awsome. I would recommend anybody to book their vacations through NatureWings."
"NATUREWINGS organasied our Silk Route Tour on last November 18 with transport and staying and they did provide some real good homestays with excellent food. The office staffs, especially AKASH DUTTA did help a lot through out the tour and before journey uncertainties were taken care and solved.
The organised the most beautiful homestay in most of the places, especially the homestay at upper Mankhim was such a bliss... I would request them to rethink about the ZULUK staying as it was not upto the mark at all.
We had some issues with delayed pick up and change of driver with the car but it ended happily...we were there during Diwali so they had their own emotional engagement. But it seemed managing car is a problem to most of the tourist as you cannot communicate with them when its needed. Bur we did have a safe journey.
overall the experience was good but apart from AKASH we did not get the needed communication from anyone from the agency.But it is such a great place and tour to remember these things...I wish them good luck."
"Thnks Naturewings and specially Thank you Avijit for your hospitality ...

"When we have plan to visit the Silk Route as well as Silerigaon, I came to know tha name of The NatureWings Holidays from fb and subsequently I have called & mailed. They assist and arrange the all necessary arrangement like honestay, car everything. At the time of journey we are in train blockade bt they contact us time to time by phone specially Akash and the driver who are waiting at NJP. They provide us nice and decorated homestay and provided us all necessary whatever we have want. Their commitment are truely proved when we visited with them. Their service is too good to travel their agents. We have visited 20/05/2018 to 25/05/2018. I think The Nature Wings Holiday is deserves to get five star.
