Day 1

First Day in Kolkata : We reached at afternoon after arriving at hotel we had lunch & left for Dakshineswar Kali Temple. we used ferry boat service at Hooghly River to reach the temple, it was really good.. I would personally suggest to take ferry service if you are going there... I don't have a picture because they don't allow cameras inside the temple. But you can take it from outside ( what if the real beauty is inside). After that we directly left for station to board a train to New Jalpaigudi...

Day 2

Second Day : Next morning we reached New Jalpaigudi station then we took a cab which was already booked, the road trip from NJP to Darjeeling was really awesome like beautiful mountains covered with clouds & fogs. We were just started.....

After arriving at our hotel in Darjeeling we got fresh & up and had our lunch then we left for Toy Train ride but I got little bored on that but after that we went for some shopping on the streets(who doesn't love that) , there were quite good stuffs specially the special Darjeeling tea(they really have some amazing flavors , every single tea tastes differently.... At night we had a great DJ party organized by hotel, we really had a great time like all the tiredness of travelling was like gone like invisible......

Day 3

Third Day : Early morning at 3.30 a.m we went for Tiger Hill, it was freezing like hell. We reached there in half an hour there was a long queue of taxi already then what we had to walked all along the way to hill top.,, but when your people are with you nothing matters.... we can conquer the world .... just a fact....
