“World heritage railway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

Darjeeling railway is the best railway I have ever seen as far as scenic beauty and joy is concerned. The ride from Darjeeling to Ghoom is just fabulous. I have reviewed the railway here too: http://www.tripadvisor.in/Attraction_Review-g304557-d3171246-Reviews-Darjeeling_Toy_Train-Darjeeling_West_Bengal.html

“It cannot get better than this...”

One of the most romantic and historic train journeys,ever.Slow but scintillating.A total wow.Though the full journey is temporarly not possible but the journey from Kurseong to Darj via one of the highest railway stations in the world - Ghoom is available.Spare some time for this journey of a life time.

“"Ek baar to banta hai!!"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

The road runs almost parallel to the rail tracks. However this is one experience that you should not miss. The train chugs through the beautiful sights and offers few of the breathtaking views from the window. The train journey is a bit longer than the road/ taxi and is restricted to and from Kurseong.
