Question on Darjeeling travel

I am planning to travel to Darjeeling during the month of first week of March with my family. I have already visited Pelling and Gangtok last year. Is there any other good worthwhile hill station that I can cover along with Darjeeling which are nearby apart from Pelling and Gangtok.Alternatively is visiting Bhutan Worthwhile.

You can do Darjeeling, Kalimpong, Lava-Lolegaon-Rishayp circuit if you have about a week or more.

Bhutan is lovely, but you need to get a permit at Phuntshilling border for every member of your family, and this needs to be done by a local agent or tour operator. In Bhutan the usual circuit is Thimpu-Paro-Punakha and nearby sightseeing. You need to talk to an agent to finalise a plan for Bhutan. Look in the Bhutan forum for TA.

You can visit bara mangwa, tinchuley, ramdhura, lamahatta. These places are off beat tourist destinations near darjeeling, though very beautiful and out of the hustle bustle of darjeeling/Kalimpong/Gangtok.

Another option is to visit East sikkim and/or Lava-Lolegaon-Rishayp.

personally I would suggest If you have time you can go for Bhutan as stated by brave1 the Paro Thimphu Punakha sightseeing. You will get a different flavour of the mountain , roads, people and culture and food. Its beautiful. It is completely worth visiting Bhutan.
