15661, Ranchi Kamakhya Exp was the train that we boarded, as this was the only train from Ranchi which connects New Jalpaiguri nearest railway station from Gangtok. Train left us at the destination on time and all the facilities were good but toilets were not clean. Over all a good experience.

I travelled in the train during the summer vacation. Train usually runs late by six hours and food quality of train was also pathetic. If someone has to travel in the train then book a ticket at least 30 days prior and make sure that you have sufficient food with you so that you can live alive for 24 hours.

First we went to Ranchi then to the railway station and took a train from Ranchi and then at Monday morning we reached New Jalpaiguri. Then at New Jalpaiguri we took a car on hire to Gangtok which took five hours to reach Gangtok. We stayed for three days at hotel and during this we took a cab for sightseeing.

Service of Bhanu was good, and itís a nonstop bus. Its seats are also comfortable and they drop us at our destination in time. It was quite new and amazing experience while travelling with Bhanu. It was my first trip with Bhanu and I really liked its services.
