We fixed our programme such that the journey and home stays at remote places would give us a different kind of experience. Started from Siliguri at 10 Am. And started towards TAKDAH, via Teesta bridge, an old British cantonment area. Road was beautiful with views of . (1)a view point from where travellers can view the confluence of Rangeet and Teesta. A beautiful spot. 2) Then through Peshak tea garden we reached at Takdah and stayed at Saino Heritage, and old British Bungalow.

When I started from Siliguri, we first stopped at a small restaurant on the way. I enjoyed momo - local dish. Then I started from dhaba to reach Darjeeling. I stayed in hotel Bhum Sang. Second day I visited local sight seeing. Driver came on proper time. He guided me to visit all places.



"Must go experience, sight of mountains would sooth your mind"

It is really an enjoying go from Siliguri to Darjeeling. The first sight of mountains from car windows would sooth your mind. When you reach near the city Darjeeling, the spectacular view of white snow covered Kanchanjangha would temp you to catch it with your hand and hot Darjeeling tea at one hand and camera in the other would give you the feelings of adventure. You can choose optional visit to Mirik and/or Pasupati market while travelling to or from Darjeeling.

Driving in a SUV in this route is an awesome experience. I travelled from Siliguri to Darjeeling, on the way first you will see the military area that is the Sukna afterwards you can see the tea estates and townships on the height of the hills. All I can say this is an unforgettable experience.
