How to Reach Darjeeling

The nearest airport to Darjeeling is the Bagdogra Airport, which is about 90 km from this place. It is connected to Kolkata and Delhi by daily flights. This airport also receives direct flight from Guwahati and Patna. From here onwards, one has to hire private cabs or taxis for reaching the hill resort.

The nearest railhead from Darjeeling comprises of the New Jalpaiguri Railway Station. It is connected to Delhi by Guwahati Rajdhani and to Kolkata by Darjeeling Mail. Except for monsoon, a toy train runs from New Jalpaiguri to Darjeeling in all seasons. You can also hire a taxi or bus for covering the distance.

In case you prefer to travel by road, you can board the ‘rocket’ buses, ITDC deluxe or AC buses from Dharamtala in Kolkata until Siliguri. From Siliguri you can either take a Trekker or hire a Maruti Van to Darjeeling, depending upon your budget............
