Darjeeling Himalayan Railway

Back To Darjeeling

Running between New Jalpaiguri and Darjeeling, the 2-feet narrow gauge railway line is one of the most adored tourism destinations in the land. The Darjeeling Toy Train as the locomotives are lovingly called brings out the toy loving child in you. The 88-kilometer long line that was constructed between 1879 and 1881 is declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The steep climb of the steam engine passing through difficult curves and gradients is an amazing sight. The train stops for some time in the Batasia loop – an awe-inspiring 360-degree loop in the steep hill. The railway line with spirals over around itself is a rare sight. The area is elegantly landscaped to attract tourists. Hence do not miss out on the opportunity for this ride while you are in Darjeeling.
