Buses/ MUV (shared) are available from outside the station for Darjeeling, Kalimpong, Mirik etc. There is a bus terminus there. Look for the counter to book seat.
If you're going to Kalimpong, request to give you right side window seat so that you can enjoy the terrific beauty of the road.
SGUJ station is very near to the Mahananda bridge- within walking limits.

Buses are avble from SGUJ while taxis are available from outside the NJP railway station as well as from Siliguri . Buses(mini buses really!) charge about 175 rs while the taxis charge around 275 per pax on sharing basis. However an entire Sumo can be availed for rs 2400 from outside NJP railway station. There is a huge board outside the NJP station which has the authorized taxi rates to DJ, Gangtok and Siliguri bus stand. For Darjeeling the rates are slightly less than what they are for Gangtok-around rs 2200 for an entire taxi.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...

So all of these features will be REMOVED. We'll have ONLY BLOGGING - quick upload of pics/videos/audio, etc. You may attach...

Previously, we had different systems of "Followed Blogs", "PNR History", "My PNR Posts", "My PNR Post Predictions", "Stamp Alerts", etc. which were somewhat confusing. Hereafter: For PNRs: 1. You may add ANY PNR to your bookmarks through the "Add Bookmark" link in the...
