----Sealdah to NJP----
Planning a trip with your office colleagues is a task in itself. Getting leaves on the same day is like inviting death (sigh....)😪
Nonetheless we managed a short three day trip to Tinchuley, a small village near Darjeeling to spend some peaceful time in nature's lap, witness the mighty Kanchenjunga (if we are lucky!), the meandering tea gardens, the appeasing monasteries and the soothing long drives....
Though the preferred time to visit Tinchuley is during winters, we decided to be more audacious and experience the scenic beauty of this place in the peak July monsoons.
How we reached Tinchuley?
We boarded the Kachenkanya Express from Sealdah railway station at 8:30pm. It takes around 11 hours to reach New Jalpaiguri (NJP) Station, the ETA of the train being 7:35 am next morning.
Tinchuley is around 73 km from NJP which takes around 2.5-3 hours.
