It was a weekend gateway trip for me away from daily chores of life on a Sunday clubbing a holiday. I hired a toto from station to reach hotel.
Place of stay: Nalanda Regency Rajgir(just 700m from station)
Note: Do not forget to visit Rajgir Zoo Safari to witness India's 2nd glass bridge skywalk, zip cycling, ziplining fly fox, suspension bridge, wall climbing etc but i was unable to do due to non-availability of ticket. No online ticket provision( one need to stand in queue for 3-4hrs or contact hotel in advance to do tickets)
I hired a toto(500/-) from hotel reception to roam around city tourist places.
