You can experience the way people travelled long time ago from NJP to darjeeling in the steam engine .The slow paced train snakes its way parellel to the roads ,stopping cars while it changes from left side to the right creating a " chuk chuk " sound,which has been described in so many nepali songs .

The short ride to Ghum is called the joy ride which is a two way ride from Darjeeling-Batasia-ghum-Darjeeling.The train stops at batasia then continues to ghum .At ghum one can visit the railway museum and then back to Darjeeling.I have clicked few pictures of them.

The tarrif is 240/- per pax.
