“Trainspotters dream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

This is one of my most favourite train rides ever, if your into the railways at all, a joy ride is must!

Simply put it, this is epic!

Warning, there shall be a lot of annoying, uninterested tourists getting in the way...if you don't like Trains, just don't go!

A must-do when in Darjeeling, you'll never experience anything like this again. The views are stunning and there are photo opportunities every step of the way.

“One of kind experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

A ride from Darjeeling to Ghoom in the toy train (Joy ride) is something that every traveller should try out when they are in Darjeeling. The narrow gauge railway maintained by Himalayan Railway takes you through the picteresque town of darjeeling and ghoom and stops for a while in Batasia loop. The entire ride (to and fro) take 2 hours, but it is worth it!
