From Plains to the Mountains : Mountains always fascinate one. And when the time is summer, its always an easy refuge. So we made plans accordingly and embarked upon our journey from the Kolkata station on 15.05.2019 and reached New Jalpaiguri Station the next day. From there, you can hire taxis (either reserve it or share) and reach Darjeeling in nearly three hours' time. The road from NJP to Darjeeling was really a treat to the eyes. Covered with the thick clouds, the mountains were playing hide and seek. We reached Darjeeling at afternoon and checked into our hotel, got freshened up and started strolling in the Mall Road. It's I think the busiest and most amazing place to shop local items that include mostly woollen garments, gifts, restaurants, etc. When it comes to talking about restaurants, how can we miss Glenary's? We checked into it and had some amazing evening snacks over there. The ambiance is so classy, one should definitely put it in their itinerary. And then we did some shopping and ended our day.
