What is the best way to get from Dehli to Darjeeling by train? How long does it take?
My estimate would be at least 50 hours by train. Better way would be to fly from Delhi to Bagdogra, then Taxi/Jeep to Darjeeling (about 6 hours)
Flight is better and faster. But if you are interested by train. This is the best combination
1. Rajdhani Express from Delhi-Howrah (17-18 hours) and then
2.Express train from Howrah-Siliguri(New Jalpaiguri)-8-10 hours, eg Darjeeling mail.
3. Siliguri to darjeeling-Taxi
