Well Sabrina..you have put us in a spot of bother. If you arrive in Kolkata on Oct 15th, then you are in the peak Durga Puja season......no tickets by train or bus upto NJP. Similarly hotels in darjeeling and sikkim will be choc-a-bloc. I really dont think that this is the proper time to visit these places, unles you plan very well in advance.

Iam sure Brave1 will offer his expert advice. One suggestion that I can make is to visit Shillong for maybe 4 nights and then stay in Kaziranga Wildlife Sanctuary, if wildlife attracts you. Shillong is comparatively less infested with tourists and therefore hotels will be available easily.

You should also plan as to how you are to travel within India ( i presume you will be flying into Kolkata ..or will it be Guwahati). Pls be almost certain that no train tickets will be avbl during this season...so you will hv to plan domestic air travel. Plan for your budget accordingly.
