This two locations are well connected with each other first by train and then by shared/private vehicles (Bus, Sumo, SUV). Now starting from Guwahati Station, there is lot of trains from Guwahati. One needs to board at Guwahati (GHY) and land at New Jalpaiguri (NJP) or Siliguri.I did this trip in March, 2015 and I landed in New Jalpaiguri.

I would suggest one to take the train which starts in the evening time (around 5 -6 pm or later) so that one reaches NJP in the early morning. The duration of train travel is 9 hours.

After reaching NJP, get fresh and move outside the railway station, I assure you will only listen Gangtok, Darjeeling, Pelling and lots of shared taxi. What I mean to say there is no connectivity issue between New Jalpaiguri and Gangtok at all. The fare of shared taxi per person is Rs 200/- and if you are a group of around 6-7, I suggest you to book the vehicles for Rs 2000/-, in this way you are saving a lot of time and will reach Gangtok early so that you can carry on with further proceedings (Hotel, Sightseeing Cab and all this).

The distance between NJP and Gangtok is around 120 km and it takes 4 hours and the roads are good enough. There are certain Shooting Stone Zone on the way which sometime cause delay due to landslides but not to worry as it's all worth winding up from the plains to the Beautiful town Gangtok.

Hope it helps.

I visited 25th March, 2015, it is one of the most famous tourist spots which is located around 35 kilometers away, from the city on the Gangtok-Nathula highway. It is considered as a holy lake which is approximately 20 km away from the Nathula Pass. The best time to visit this lake is from...more »

I had taken the decision for this journey suddenly, so there was no reservation available for the Kanchenjunga express I have confirmed my ticket one day before the journey by applying TATKAL service. This train is very comfortable and it reached the destination without delay..

I visited Gangtak in my own car. I drove the car myself. I started at 4.30 am from Guwahati on 30/3/14. Reached Siliguri at 3.00 pm. Stayed in a hotel. Next morning I started at 6.00 am from Siliguri and reached Gangtok at 10.30 am on 31/3/14. I stayed at Mayur Hotel from 31/3/14 to 2/4/14. It is fascinating to drive vehicle from Guwahati to Gangtak. One can see and feel the excitement of driving on hilly roads. I advise fellow tourists to travel in a SUV or a Sedan. I also advise them to stop at several points on the way to Gangtak to see the natural beauty. Life is worthwhile if we know how to utilize it in a meaningful and exciting ways.
