  1. By train: The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, also known as the “Toy Train,” is a narrow gauge railway that connects Siliguri to Darjeeling. The journey takes about 7 hours and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding hills and valleys. Tickets can be purchased at the Siliguri Railway Station or online.
  2. By bus: There are frequent bus services that operate between Siliguri and Darjeeling. The journey takes about 4-5 hours and tickets can be purchased at the Siliguri Bus Stand or online.
