“Must Watch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

Its fun and must try attraction. The train is archaic and though full of fun. The location is fine and but the urbanization has its effect on the awesomeness. Other than that the trip is stunning and full of fun...

“Darjeeling Toy Train”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

The highest hill railway line in Asia is moving along the road and traveling in the toy train would be an added extraordinary experience.

“Himalayan Queen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

This railway is one of the oldest train to run in Himalayan range. It is pleasure to watch when it rolls through the hills. It leaves the Siliguri Rly Stn at 0900 Hrs and reaches the destination at around 1600 Hrs. Some times it is struck due to some repair work or some other reasons, better to check before taking a ride on it. The reservations can be done much in advance and the reservation charges are very less for the Indians. It is one the lifetime achievements one must have in his basket. I took a ride in it way back in year 2002, but on my recent visit to Darjeeling I took a snap from my cab on way to Darjeeling. The same can be seen in photos categories. There are various types of travel packages in it also, better check it before planning for ride.

“Unique train ride”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

Interesting train ride from Kurseong to Darjeeling. The railway was built first and the road weaves across it many times.
