The best and the coolest option to travel to Darjeeling is by Himalayan Mountain Railway's Toy Train from New Jalpaiguri. Now driven 6 time by Diesel Engine, it is faster and takes about 6 to 7 hours to reach Darjeeling from Jalpaiguri. On way, you shall cross many beautiful locations and stations like Teen Dharia, Kurseoung, Sonada, Ghoom and many more!

But in these fast days, no one wants to spend a day in this train. But I suggest and recommend that you travel to Darjeeling by this Toy Train , you will not only be able to see locals, take pictures, get the breathtaking views of the hills and mountains but it will also acclimatise your body to a great extent. You can return by road, which runs parallel.

The fare would be around Rs120/- or about US$3 in second class, but this is just nothing compared to what you get in return.
