Budget hotel in Darjeeling

by sash100

Hi, I'm planning a trip to Darjeeling in November, 2008 and need help in finding a budget/cheap hotel. I would also like to know what buses are from Siliguri to Darjeeling. The reason for my trip is an experience from when I was 16 years old. It was my first trip to Darjeeling and I got off the bus half way from Siliguri to Darjeeling. Almost all the people got off the bus and I followed them. They walked down a path and I could see eventually that they stopped in front of a small statue and prayed. I too prayed and got all my wishes. I would now like to find that statue again and pray once more. Is there anybody who could give me some information about the location of statues along the way from Siliguri to Darjeeling?

If you are someone who likes peach and quite along with wonderful views then going to Hill Stations in India is the best place to be. Whether it is winter or summer Hill Stations are fun in all seasons throughout the year. One common Hill Station is Darjeeling, which is situated in West Bengal. It is very popular with tourists from around the world and including people from India. Darjeeling is very popular for its tea estates and picturesque toy train.For more detail visit wwww.darjeeling-travel.com

Nepali dances-Maruni dance

by mantru

It is one of the oldest and most popular dances of the Nepales. Although this dance is associated with the festival of Tihar(Tyohar) or Diwali meaning "Festival of Light", because of its popularity it is performed even on occasions like marriages. Tihar is celebrated to mark the return of the Hindu god Rama from exile. During this festival Maruni dancers richly dressed in colourful costumes and resplendent with ornaments and nose rings ceiled "dungris" go on a house to house visit. The dancers are usually also accompanied by a clown called "Dhatu waray". Sometimes Maruni dances are performed to the accompanist of the nine instrument orchestra known as "Naumati Baja".

It is traditionally believed that females should not perform this dance. Therefore, only males perform this in a disguised form wearing female dress and decorating them as females. They thus become maruni and perform the dance. this dance is based especially on the story of the pangs and agony of Sorathi Rani, a legengendary queen. (more)

DHR-joy ride

by mantru

You can experience the way people travelled long time ago from NJP to darjeeling in the steam engine .The slow paced train snakes its way parellel to the roads ,stopping cars while it changes from left side to the right creating a " chuk chuk " sound,which has been described in so many nepali songs .

The short ride to Ghum is called the joy ride which is a two way ride from Darjeeling-Batasia-ghum-Darjeeling.The train stops at batasia then continues to ghum .At ghum one can visit the railway museum and then back to Darjeeling.I have clicked few pictures of them.

The tarrif is 240/- per pax.

Darjeeling Himalayan Railway

by steaminchina

"Superlatives"

This line is certainly one of the most incredible railway of Asia. It has some similarities with the Eritrean Railway (see my other travelogue). Total lenght is more than 100KM, total slope also more than 2200 meters. It is a narrow gauge line which follows the road for most of the trip.

"No tunnels"

One of the curiosities of the line is that it was built without big infrastructure. There are no big bridges, no long tunnels. The most impressive features are the so-called 'loops' where the line makes a 360 degree turn to take some altitude and some 'zig-zags'. There are also some street runnings through the villages as the picture shows.

"Diesel and steam"

The starting point of the line is New Jalpaiguri (NJP), where it connects with the broad-gauge network of the Indian Railways. As Masawa in Eritrea, it is a hot and humide place and the trip to the cool Darjeeling is a most pleasant experience (in fact it was the purpose of building the line). Normally trains are hauled by small diesel locomotives, but sometimes, steam may substitute. The trip takes normally 8 to 9 hours, so take enough provisions, there is no dinning-coach!
