"Bus from Siliguri to Darjeeling" Darjeeling Transportation Tip by Liatris1

Darjeeling Transportation: 12 reviews and 18 photos

We took a taxi from New Jalpaiguri to Siliguri. We were also offered a shared jeep, all the way to Darjeeling, for 90 R per person, and 800 Rs for a jeep-taxi to ourselves. But we chose the bus. The train would take approx. 9 hours and the bus 3-5 hours.

The road up was dramatically beautiful. We saw traces of landslides, which probably had occurred during the monsoon. We drove past the train, it ran very slowly. Train tracks criss-crossing the road, and there were signs of "stop, look, run ..."

There were also many signs like this along the road that would remind people to drive carefully:

"Hurry Burry spoils the Curry"

"Good gave you your life, save it!"

"Give your blood to the blood bank, and not to this road"

"Do not mix drive and drink"

Mode: TO
Type: Bus
