We (me and my husband) decided long back that this year Puja vaccation won't be about staying at home or going some place only to relax. We needed adventure, we needed some trip to jilt our comfort-loving nature. And for that all we needed was to find some like-minded friends and a solid plan.
So, there we were,6 friends- by the end of July we all agreed to go for trekking during Puja. We contacted one of our university senior who arranges this type of trips and after few meetings on the destination we finally decided this route:Hilley- Barsey- Joributey- Kalijar-Singalila Pass- Phalut- Gorkhey-Srikhola. This is not a route frequently chosen by travelers, so there are no clear route map. I got some partial map from Google which I am attaching here.

28th Sept: 4 of us met at Sealdah station, other two were planned to board at Burdwan. We knew that one more person is to join us who contacted Himalaya Trekkers for this trip. We met him (Arindam) at the station and our journey finally started at 10.00 with Darjeeling mail.
29th Sept: We reached NJP almost on right time, but had to wait some time to meet the driver of our pre-booked car. We had a quick breakfast at a food-stall outside the NJP station and finally left at around 11 a.m. We were supposed to meet Our head guide Tularam at Jorthang Market. Head guide means he operates other guides and porters, he won't go with us on trek. He will leave us on Hilley and again will meet at Gorkhey. We reached Jorthang around 2 p.m. and had lunch there. Tularam and another person accompanied us from there, this second person was our cook. All the supplies for the trek are also taken from Jorthang. As soon as we finished lunch, we left for Hilley as it was another 5 hrs jorney from Jorthang. By the time we reached Hilley via Sombaria, it was already dark. Hilley trekkers hut was booked for us and we got to meet other members of our group there- they were seven porters who will be the main support of the team from next day onwards

I don't know... It looked like half of the road was dug for some reason and now they spread those stones to make up the condition

The beginning

30th Sept: We all woke up at the morning around 5 a.m. to witness our first sunrise in hills on this trip It was beautiful to see the red ball rolling up the valley and spreading the warmth and color in the world

Hilley to Barsey was only 4 km trek, so we took our time to know our support team, stroll around, take some photos, have breakfast We learned that Lachen and Temba were the leaders Dhanraj, our cook is makes awesome foods and there won't be any guide with us today. The guide will join us the next day at Barsey. We were ready by 10 a.m. to begin our journey and we were about to enter Barsey Rhododendron Sanctuary
