Baiguney is located on the foothill of West Sikkim. It is a newfound jewel far from the tourist rush. It is just about 2 hours drive from Pelling and Darjeeling. Baiguney is the perfect offbeat holiday destination for those who are looking for a crow-free sleepy hill station. Situated on the riverbank of shimmering Rangeet, Baiguney is a pictorial hamlet notorious for its ambiance, scenic view of the mountains, and sparkling Rangeet River cutting across the valley. Being surrounded by forests and a river flowing next to it Baiguney in Sikkim has endless surprises to offer in its basket. Baiguney is home to Club Mahindra Resort, a destination resort where guests can enjoy a luxury resort experience with a nature-centric destination experience.
Sikkim has four districts: East Sikkim, North Sikkim, South Sikkim and West Sikkim. If you have 10 to 11 nights available for vacation, you can cover most of the destinations. If you have 7 to 8 nights then you can combine Baiguney with Gangtok which is a very common tour itinerary. I recommend you to look into my other 2 diaries viz Club Mahindra Gangtok and Le Vintuna for more clarities. We have taken a vacation of 10 nights and my tour itinerary is as under:
3 nights at Club Mahindra Baiguney 1 night at Club Mahindra Gangtok 1 night at Club Mahindra Lachung 1 night at Lachen 3 nights at Club Mahindra Gangtok 1 night at Club Mahindra Silligudi Club Mahindra has either their own property or affiliated property at all these locations except Lachen.
You can blindly follow this itinerary and believe me you can cover most of the tourist places of Sikkim with Club Mahindra. Now let's talk about what to do and places to visit keeping your base at Club Mahindra Baiguney. The nearest airport is Bagdogra. Club Mahindra Baiguney is a 3 to 3.5 hours drive from Bagdogra airport. So the day you are arriving at Bagdogra you can directly take a taxi and go to Baiguney.
