How to Reach Darjeeling

By Air

The nearest airport is in the city of Bagdogra, which is an important military installation. It is located at a distance of 90 km from Darjeeling. Various domestic flights shuttle between Bagdogra and some of the major cities in India. People who are willing to travel by air can disembark at the Bagdogra airport and take buses, taxis and private cars from the airport for reaching Darjeeling.

By Rail

The most convenient railhead is New Jalpaiguri / Siliguri. Various cities of India are connected to the New Jalpaiguri / Siliguri station by major trains. But only the toy-train plies between the local Darjeeling and the New Jalpaiguri / Siliguri station. So if you plan your journey by train, you have to board the toy-train (mini-train) from the New Jalpaiguri/ Siliguri station for getting to the place. The journey takes about 10 hrs and gives you a breathtaking view of the entire landscape.

By Road

Well maintained and motorable roads connect Darjeeling to the other places in and around West Bengal. The state transports have buses that regularly shuttle between Darjeeling and these places. Siliguri, Bagdogra, Gangtok, Kurseong and Kathmandu are easily connected to Darjeeling by roads. Moreover, various deluxe/ semi-deluxe buses that are run by private operators make Darjeeling easily accessible from these places......more
