Darjeeling
( Travel Info )

Air: The nearest airport is 90km away at Bagdogra, down on the plains near Silliguri.

Bus: Most of the buses from Darjeeling leave from the Bazaar bus stand (Hill Cart Rd). Darjeeling is connected by road with Silliguri, Bagdogra, Gangtok and Kathmandu.

Rail: New Jalpaiguri/Silliguri is the railhead for all trains other than the narrow-gauge toy train. Reservation for major trains out of New Jalpaiguri can be made at the Darjeeling railway station (the toy train terminus) between 10am and 4pm daily (closed for lunch between 1 and 2 pm).
The toy train runs daily, although services during the monsoon are often disrupted due to the track being washed away. It is a slow but interesting trip, although the black soot belched out by the little steam engine soon gets annoying, and the tiny carriages are extremely cramped, especially when filled with at least dozen hefty foreigner and their backpacks.
