"Journey between Guwahati and Gangtok. Moving from plains to hills :-)"

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.

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.

Had a nice travel in Dibrugarh-Delhi Rajdhani express from Guwahati to Gangtok on the 1st week of this new year 2014. Train was on time and it was quite clean. We boarded the AC 2 tier and was pleased with all the food offered in the train. Good travel experience...

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..

We started our journey from Siliguri for Gangtok by Toyota Innova. Since that was rainy season landslides and some critical roads which we were passed. But the natural view was fantastic. On the way we have seen Sikkim Maipal University etc and finally thankful to Mr. Thapa our driver a fantastic driver we never had seen.

Sorry, we could not find preference of Travellers for this route.
