Drive from Bhadrapur to Darjeeling

At Bhadrapur airport, you are met by our local guide and transferred to Darjeeling. Do not forget to get departure seal on your passport at Nepal immigration at Kakarbhitta. Drive over the Friendship Bridge, complete Indian visa formalities and continue drive to Darjeeling. About in one hour, you reach Siligurhi-the last trading post in the plains and then the road passes through the foothills tea gardens and the forests of the Terai, feeling the growing nip in the air, till you suddenly realize that you are looking down the hillside. The sal and semul give way to fig, cedar, birch and pine. After the monsoons, the several waterfalls on highway 55 make for a breathtaking experience. At a moderate altitude of 4860 feet, you come to Kurseong, the place of the white orchids. Kurseong offers the first view of the mountain range in the north behind the Ghoom ridge. The climb continues to Toong, Sonada and Ghoom, the highest rail road station in the world at 7400 feet, and then descends to Darjeeling. The bright colors of flowers that grow beautifully and effortlessly and everywhere will warm even the coldest of hearts as will the sight of chubby cheeked children walking to and from schools in the middle of nowhere.
