After viewing the sunrise, I walk down to the Mall for a fresh cup of tea in the stands. Leisure time sitting on the wooden plank made chairs, sipping tea and see local people around.Tips: This Mall has seen the history of changes over the years. Don't miss to spend some time to experience the same.
Day 1: Our train from kolkata arrived at NJP station around 9.30 in the morning. After the breakfast we started our journey for Darjeeling. We had not booked our hotel room earlier so we were worried. We took the shared cab. The cab driver charged 200 rupees extra to drop us near mall as we decided to stay there.We arrived Darjeeling around 3 o clock. We started searching for our hotel rooms. We found a good lodge in reasonable price near prasar bharati. But its only for lodging . They do not offer fooding. This lodge is operated by an elderly sweet couple. They are very friendly and helpful.View from Hotel room
