Enjoy the beautiful mountains on the way, stop for a chai (Tea), enjoy momos and local delicacies. Make sure you have your camera handy to click some nice view along the way. Do try some black tea, if you have mountain sickness carry abomin or just eat apple before the travel, make sure you don't travel on empty stomach.

The road trip from Jalpaiguri to Darjeeling was an awesome one. We boarded a cab from Jalpaiguri to darjelling. There are actually two ways of going to Darjeeling from Jalpaiguri. We took the route via Mirik Lake and Nepal Border. The journey was very comfortable and scenic. There were a lot of tea gardens on the way and the path was very hilly. The tea in mirik is a must try. It was the most awesome tea I ever tasted in my life and it costed only Rs.10. For a restaurant you have to look in Mirik only, as you will not find anyone after that till Darjeeling.

The TOY train journey from New Jalpaiguri (NJP) to Darjeeling is a huge delight. It is a romantic approach to the Himalayas. One can book the tickets on the IRCTC website. The best part of the journey is when the train passes through the Batasia loop. The train takes a very long time to cover the distance but the splendid view it offers makes it worth it. It is a once in a lifetime experience.

We took a local travel's taxi from the New Jalpaiguri Station. The car we chose was Qualis. The NH-55 is an extremely smooth highway. The way is peppered with local eateries and lodges. The route is very picturesque and we were tempted to stop at various view points to click pictures. We took a pit stop at Hema Hotel, were we were served freshly made noodles and momos. There are petrol pumps on the way and it is the most recommended route and mode of transport for travelling to Darjeeling.
