It was a good journey but was 20 minutes late. Sitting was comfortable and service was ok. In-flight service was average indeed it was only 1 hourís journey. Bagdogra Airport is an average, small and prepaid taxi counter was hopeless. No taxi for Mirik. We had to go outside to bargain a cab with much higher price.

Howrah New Jalpaiguri Puja Special (03059) is a worse train for NJP from HWH it will take around 12hours to reach the destiny, don't try it. The Howrah Station is filled by vagabonds and vikkhuks, no one bothered about the cleaning of the station, no helpful counter who can tell that from which platform the train will depart, the display boards are not adequate for the information and the train was very slow moving, no attendants, no food, no bedroll nothing and lastly we reached the NJP after 11 hours journey. The journey from NJP to MIRIK was good.

It is a small town surrounded by hill. You can spend a relaxed & lazy week end over here with one night stay. Generally travellers cover this place with one day trip from Darjeeling. But by this way one could not feel the tranquillity of the place The main attraction is around the Mirik lake...more »

We booked tickets in AC three tier and the coach was good with clean bedrolls. The toilets were clean and the train journey was overall good. The seats were in good condition and the new brown colored seats and curtains look really good.The AC temperature was well maintained and the train was thirty minutes late from its schedule time.
