"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"
