Due to limited time it wasn't possible to take the full trip on the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway all the way to Kurseong, but still managed a short trip from Darjeeling to Ghum and back. This was well worth the effort and still allowed the experience on being on the railway. Recommended

Joy ride for few hours that goes into mountain .Its an forgettable journey.Eralier this narrow gauge train runs between siligudi to darjeeling but after some landslide 2-3 years ago, Line destroyed and now ot runs between darjeeling and kurseaong but still its enjoyable.its an 4 hour journey from dajeeling to ghoom and return and i can assure you will enjoy every minute. In between the train has two stop,one at batista loom and other at ghoom.There is a rail museum at ghoom .If you are planning darjeeling trip then dont forget darjeeling himalayan railway.

An enjoyable, beautiful train journey. The train moves very slow allowing you to enjoy the vast natural beauty on both the sides.

The joy ride was so loud and didn't really go into the mountains. the track followed the road and always was in the city. The train whistle was constantly blowing. It was quite the experience. I really was expecting to go on the toy train, but it wasn't running.
