My journey was full of goodies, we started on May 22nd night and reached the next day around 8am from where we booked a cab to Gangtok which took around 3 hrs. The route was exciting full of natural views. We stayed there for 4 days and went to Tsomgo Lake, Nathula, Lachung etc. After all this the journey came to an end.

Darjeeling mail is my most preferable train because of it timing. It starts sealdah at 10:00 PM and reach NJP with 8:00 AM. After that by car anyone can reach Gangtok within 2:00 PM. Then you can start a short local sight seen over there. The coaches, berths, floors, toilets were clean. The security personnel were there.

I will rate Hotel Silver Line average as it is located very near to mall, taxi stand, market and cable car. The fooding is best. But services are very poor, because you can only get hot water only for 30 min for whole day, there is no room heater allowed.more »

Kolkata airport has taste of local tourism. Cleanliness is not maintained in the airport premises(both inside and outside). Clutter everywhere. Administration should take a note. Taxi service at Bagdogra is complete chaos. Travel agencies at Bagdogra should be regularly scrutinized by Local police and RTO.

Reasonable price tickets, before time arrival, good connectivity that's Jet Airways for you.

Kolkata airport is unnecessarily too big with lesser number of passengers with old styled X-Ray machines for baggage. very few numbers of shops & cafes in the airport.

Best in-class service from Jet Airways, inflight food is good and hygienic. The only problem with aircraft was the last row seats were too cramped up with no legroom space. The check-in and boarding was smooth and hassle free.
