    DHR-joy ride

    by mantru Written Nov 9, 2008

    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.

    Train stopping at Batasia Dhr Old photograph from the museum Old photograph from the museum some other loop which existed long back.

    Himalayan Mountaineering Insitute

    by traceyspacey Written Jan 9, 2008

    This is in the grounds of the zoological park. It provides training for India's leading mountaineers. Within the complex there is the Everest museum which traces the history of the attempts on the worlds highest mountain. It makes you really think of what has been achieved with so little equipment.

    Next door is the Mountaineering Musuem, with a model of the world's mountains. In the UK our highest mountain is Ben Nevis, it looks so small compared to the others! Darjeeling is higher than
    Ben Nevis.

    It's very busy on the high street to the bazaar.
    Sometimes there is a real traffic jam of local cars, bringing people to the bazaar.
