All About It

Sikkim, is a mysterious hidden secret of the mighty Eastern Himalayan range tucked between Nepal, Bhutan and mainland India is a gateway to the Hidden caves of Mt.  Kanchanjunga. Besides the very intriguing mythological context, Sikkim has a rich,  unexplored, and untouched cultural context too!

Starting from lesser-known facts, Sikkim was an independent country, until it became the  22nd state of the North-Eastern border of India in May 1975. The state is a living example of overlapping cultures, lifestyles, and spiritual beliefs, thriving in peace, harmony, and love. It is shared by 3 major tribes - the Lepchas (the snowmen & Nature worshippers, original  Sikkimese tribe), Bhutias ( the Buddhist Tibetan tribe), and Nepalis (the Hindus). We would be driving through different regions which have been home to these tribes respectively even before the merger to spend some time from our lives exchanging and sharing cultures,  lifestyles, cuisines, folklores, art & architecture. The trip offers a taste of a mountain city,  mountain countryside, a mountain town, and a village clubbed with a rich history and changing landscapes with great variations in altitude and kind-hearted people. It will leave you wanting to come back for more.

What’s life without adventure? Isn’t the real purpose of life to travel, to experience new places, and witness the sunrise from new mountaintops?

This thought is what united Jatin and Tarun over a cup of chai, in spite of being from two unrelated backgrounds (CA and IT). They knew each other since the time Jatin was helping Tarun learn the ways of the wilderness through weekend treks and outings with another traveling group. Their love for traveling and trekking together motivated them to start something of their own. Thus was born “Plan The Unplanned”, where travel goals come true. Under the Companies Act, Plan The Unplanned is incorporated as Unplanned Journeys Private Limited

They started their journey on unsteady ground, much like any other company, but they shared an infatuation for travel and adventure with their customers, which amplified their determination, and thus, Plan the Unplanned family keeps getting bigger every day!

Just about any travel idea can come alive with Plan The Unplanned…treks, adventure activities like rock climbing, kayaking, rafting, backpacking trips across the country, cultural outings, photo walks; everything that fellow travelers need, to explore the great outdoors together.

Well now that the wanderlust has kicked in and you can already see a vacation in your nearest future, here’s what we have to offer!
