This was an 8 day Family Trip. 5 of started reached Bagdogra and had plans to go to Darjeeling. I tried booking cabs in advance but couldn't find a good deal. Thank God that I couldn't. Yes u heard it right, thank god. Because the trip had lot of things to cheer about and remember but one thing i truly loved was the driver we got and his Chivalry.
Thanks to our driver "Chandra Bhaiya", trip was memorable not only for me but for my Mom, Dad, Wife and Nephew as well. We univocally say the best decision was to go with Chandra Bhaiya (CB)
Our plan was to go to Darjeeling through the shorter route but upon CB's recommendation we took Mirik route, and then i realised why people say journey is more important than destination, indeed our journey to Darjeelin was very beautiful. We made several stops and enjoyed tea garden, parks, botanical gardens, Chai ki tapri, Nepal border village (bought Perfumes 2 out of 3 were very good and got it at price of 1) etc and finally reached Darjeeling, which was freezing. We stayed at Delight Norling, which was good but i guess you can find better options as well.
