DAY 1. 27th May 2014
We reached New Jalpaiguri railway station early in the morning the next day, on 27th. From there we hired a private car and set off to Darjeeling. The roads are steep and very scary! A small slip or a little too much of a turn and you are down the hills! It took us almost 3 hours to reach Darjeeling. We stayed near the Mall at a resort called Viramma Villa, a little secluded from the main crowd of the Mall.
DAY 2. 28th May 2014
It rained all day on 28th. We couldn’t get out and explore and were trapped inside for the entire day. Instead we helped ourselves with hot delicacies. In the evening it stopped raining but it was already too late. So at 7 pm, we decided to take a stroll at the Mall itself. The weather forecast also looked good enough for the next couple of days. We had fine Darjeeling Tea at Golden Tips.
