How to reach
Rail: The nearest Railway Station is that of New Jalpaiguri, which 62 km away from the main city.
Air: The nearest airport is Bagdogra Airport. Delhi, Kolkata and Guwahati have direct flights to Darjeeling. Since we were travelling from Bangalore, we had to opt for a connecting flight (layover being in Kolkata).
Climate and Acclimatization
Situated at approximately 7000 ft, Darjeeling has a comfortable climate and you need not stay indoors for acclimatization. When we went (April mid), the temperature ranged between 12 to 15 degrees. Pleasant, isn’t it?
We stayed in Darjeeling for one night and explored some of the most commonly known, rather famous, tourist places the next day. A summary of the route map of our Sikkim Trip is given below:
