How to Reach Darjeeling

Darjeeling, the queen of the hills, can easily be reached either by Air, Road of Train. 

By Train

The nearest major rail station around Darjeeling is the New Jalpaiguri rail station. It is also popularly called NJP station. Though the name has Jalpaiguri in it, the station is in Siliguri town and not in Jalpaiguri town. It is one of the most important rail stations in eastern India. Each and every train connecting North East India with the rest of the country has to pass through this station. So wherever you are coming from, it is quite likely that you will find a train for NJP. From NJP to Darjeeling town is just about 75 km away, this distance you have to travel by car, Shrey Car Rental office is just 5 km from NJP and we can provide you vehicles for your travel to Darjeeling at a competitive price.

The Toy Train for travel from NJP to Darjeeling

Darjeeling town also has a rail station, it is exclusively used by the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway (DHR), popularly called the toy train. The Small train connects Darjeeling with Siliguri. Technically you can travel all the way to Darjeeling on the train by using the service of DHR. However please note that the trains are often not operational for the entire route due to track maintenance/landslide or similar other issues. Even when the train is operational, the entire journey of about 80 km from NJP to Darjeeling may take 8 to 10 hours. Although this is a very beautiful experience, many tourists constrained by time prefer not to take this journey and prefer to travel by our tourist taxi. Instead one may avail the Toy Train Joy Ride, this is a 3-hour ride originating in Darjeeling and taking tourists to the nearby picturesque Batasia Loop.

By Flight

Bagdogra Airport (Code IXB) is the nearest airport. Bagdogra airport is about 10 km from Siliguri town. But to reach Darjeeling, you can bypass Siliguri and go directly to Darjeeling from here. The distance from Bagdogra to Darjeeling town is about 70 km. We provide a vehicle for your pick up and drop from Bagdogra to Darjeeling. Our Head Office has located about 8 km from Bagdogra Airport.

By Road

Darjeeling is well connected with the rest of the country by National Highway 110 (Previously NH 55) which connects Darjeeling with the Siliguri town. Siliguri is located on what is known as the chicken's neck, a thin stretch of land between the hills on the north and Bangladesh on the south. This chickens neck is critical as it is the only connection for North East India to the rest of the country. There are multiple National as well as International Highways passing through Siliguri such as BBIN highway, National Highway 10, Asian Highway, etc. As a result, this region is very well connected to the rest of the country by road. However, if you are coming to Darjeeling from a far off place, it is preferred that you travel to NJP or Bagdogra by rail/air and then take a Tourist Taxi with our vehicle to the Darjeeling hill station.

Brief description of the route

From NJP / Bagdogra you can travel to Darjeeling through a multiple of ways. The first 25 - 30 km is through the plains and the remaining journey is through the beautiful hills of Darjeeling and through the best tea gardens in the world that have made Darjeeling so famous. There are 4 different routes which your taxi can take. The Rohini road is by far the most often used and the best bet to travel from NJP to Darjeeling. The second most preferred road is the Pankhabari road. This road is even shorter but the winding hilly roads some tourists may find a little too adventurous. However many times this thin Pankhabari road is restricted for only one way traffic to avoid congestion. From Bagdogra to Darjeeling this is an easier and faster route. The third road is the original National Highway, this has the widest road and best views, but the travel distance is quite long and your travel time may be extended by as much as an hour or so. Last but not least is the road via Mirik. Though this is a roundabout way to get to Darjeeling, and we will charge you extra for going via Mirik, if you are arriving early and have some extra time, spending a couple of hours in Mirik on your way to Darjeeling is really worthwhile.
