After visiting the Taj Mahal, you will have to come back to Delhi and take a flight to Bagdogra airport. From there you can take a car up. The full journey from Siliguri to Darjeeling by toy train is not recommended. Take the shorter joyride from Darjeeling to Ghoom instead.

Before going to Darjeeling make sure you have updated information about the strikes taking place there. Go through previous posts in this forum.
