"Train provides awesome services starting from breakfast to lunch"

Shatabdi is an awesome train. It is definitely very fast and reaches in almost 8 hours, which saves the time very much. This train provides awesome services starting from breakfast to lunch. Catering services are also very good and the food is also nice to some extent compared to other trains pantry car foods. Tickets were also available so we don\'t have to find any trouble about that. We travelled in chair car which seems almost like flight. They offer everything like food, water, drinks, tea etc. and the most important thing the toilets are very clean which we don\'t find in every train.

"The road is good for most of the part"

Took a train from Sealdah (Kolkata) to New Jalpaiguri (Silliguri). Then share taxi to Gangtok. The road is good for most of the part. Beautiful scenery around and the lovely Teesta River meandering with alongside the road for most part of the journey. There are clean toilets on various location by roadside, the Sikkim Government have done really well to help tourists. Even the small dhabas have good and clean toilets. Do have lunch at any roadside dhaba its really great, don\'t go for noodles or momos, but ask for normal meal and you will forever remember the taste of local vegetables cooked in their style.

"Train only with AC coaches"

We were in AC 2 tier. Traveling was very comfortable and it reached New Jalpaiguri station right on time. Toilets were very clean. The train timing was very good. You just had your dinner and enter in the train. There are no sleeper class in it, all AC coaches. It starts from Kolkata station and goes to Guwahati. But in New Jalpaiguri it stops near to 20 mins. For going to Guwahati also it is the best train.

"Dont forget to take avomin tablets while traveling to Gangtok"

It\\\'s an over night journey and a good start for the next morning. From New Jalpaiguri you can start your journey to Gangtok and sight seeing is nice. If you feel nauseous take some Avomin tablet and also carry some popcorn as it help. Even hajmola and namkins are helpful. Because of altitude vomiting can arise, so don\\\'t plan any program on the day of journey to Gangtok.
