We started our journey on 20/06/2019 and after some hard luck got reservation in Kanchankanya Express (From Sealdah to NJP/ Timing- 8:30pm). The train journey was nothing different from what we expected. We were a group of 3 girls going to one of the remote villages in North Bengal. This had raised some eye brows, mostly of the driver who drove us till Jorbunglow. From NJP one can get reserved car Or one can opt for shared vehicle till Jorbunglow or Ghoom. But the main problem lies with getting another shared vehicle till 3rd Mile. So it was wise for us to pay a little more reserve a car to drop us at our home stay. One need to bargain hard to get a reasonable deal. We settled at 3000, as we decided to take a detour to Ghooom Monastery and Batasia Loop before heading towards our home stay. One word of caution- most drivers at NJP station had no idea where Rangaroon was. So it is better to have a clear idea to make them understand and choose a reliable sounding driver. Unfortunately on the way our driver lost his confidence and contacted out home stay to arrange another car for us from Jorbunglow. Do not forget to taste the momos on the way from the local restaurants with an amazing mountain view.We were picked up by the driver of our home stay from Jorblunglow and he took us to Batasia Loop and Ghoom Monastery. We took all our time to explore these two places and he was so calm and never complained. :D
We reached the NJP station early in the morning. It was so calm and as we waited at the station for our ride to arrive, we were lucky to witness a beautiful sunrise. From NJP we set straight for Gangtok
