Although Darjeeling needs no introduction, yet a little note has never harmed anyone.
Darjeeling is quite the pride of Bengal and with its tea plantations, "Toy Train" and the breathtakingly beautiful Kachenjunga, it's safe to say it's quite a favourite tourist destination for many including international travellers.
One can reach Darjeeling through air, road or rail.
Although there are no direct flights or trains to Darjeeling, one can reach NJP or Bagdogra and then take a cab.
The road trip to Darjeeling is itself very beautiful and indeed a treat to the eyes.
The steep horseshoe bend roads, the slopes with vast stretch of tea plantations, the ever so tall pine trees, a TV Tower in the background (Kurseong), the narrow yet busy streets of Kalimpong (you pass by this small town in one of the routes to Darjeeling), the toy train racing your car(!), adds much to the road trip.
