29th April :
I reached NJP (new Jalpaiguri) at 7 am . Then we booked a shared car (sumo gold) to Darjeeling which costed Rs 210/head . You will see a lot o shared cars in front of Njp railway station.
We reached our hotel by 12pm approximately. The name of the hotel where we stayed is "SNOW VIEW HOTEL" . The hotel cost was very cheap . We were a group of 5 guys and we paid rs.2200 for 2 nights i.e rs.220 per head per night . The room was pretty large too. The room didn't contain geyser but whenever we required hot water we called them and they provided us 2 buckets of hot water every time.Moreover the hotel was pretty close to Mall area,about 10 minutes walk.
We already told the hotel to arrange a car (sumo gold) for us. After that we started to walk to the mall. Explored the market at mall,chauk bazaar. Then we visited Mahakal temple,church. I had my dinner at 8pm (rs 100) and returned to the hotel walking downhill. I had to sleep early as next morning I need to get up at 3:30 am for visiting Tiger hill.
