Siliguri Junction 1/1 by Tripoto

Siliguri Junction

Priyesh Kannoth
Took a morning flight from Mumbai to Bagdogra via Kolkata and reached Bagdogra airport by 3pm. Took a share cab to Siliguri bus terminal (300/- outside the airport, prepaid taxi at airport cost 460/- and the counter guy suggested that I take a taxi from outside which is cheaper) where I had booked a room in Hotel Himalayan Regency. I was staying near Tenzing Norgay bus terminal near Siliguri junction as I had to catch a bus to Gangtok the next day (my friend is supposed to join me at Gangtok the next day so had to make a halt at Siliguri). Since there was nothing much to do for the rest of the day, I went to Siliguri junction and the place was almost deserted with a train coming in at an interval of 40-45 min.
