Well! so all sound good and sorry for the late reply

your Day 2 is possible but Lillie hectic .........Lava only 4km walk from there...........backpack will not be a problem, but you have to think what to do with other bags...........you'll find car/jeep near Lava bus stand

Lolegaon 24 km and Kalimpong 32km from Lava..........and from Lolegaon to Kalimpong its about 55km or 2/2.5hrs journey..........so calculate now in your way to achieve your day 2 goal, I'll suggest to book car for that day.......well dont forget to add few time for lunch

Accommodation:

You may have some gooling and make your mind.........there are lots of hotels......you may try for spot booking to save some money; but please note; it depend on which month or season you are going.......here are hotels/resorts as per as my experience and regarding your budget:

Rishyap

Green Valley 9432964242
Sonar Bangla click

Kalimpong

Soods Garden Retreat 9733123113

Morgan House (west bengal govt)

Darjeeling

have look here

Hi All,

I am planning for a 5 nights short tour at Kalinpong-Lolegaon-Lava-Rishop in mid of May this year.My tour plan is given below....

Day1: Start journey from Sealdah by Uttarbanga Exp(as it reaches early at NJP)
Day2: After reaching NJP, start journey for Kalimpong. Overnight stay at Kalimpong (WBTDC HillTop Cottage).

Day3: From Kalimpong visit Delo, day tour to Kalimpong Mcfurlung Church,view point,Mangaldham temple etc. Overnight stay at Kalimpong

Day4: After having breakfast at Kalinpong, start for Lolegaon. Lunch at Lolegaon. Afternoon go for canopy walk.Overnight stay at Lolegaon(At private Hotel-may be at Sunakhari Resort, if comfortable. It is known that WBFDC lodge is not operating now)

Day5: After having breakfast at Lolegaon, start for Rishop. Overnight stay at Rishop (Hotel Paradise Villa-if good enough)

Day6: View sunrise from Tiffindara, after lunch start for Lava by Car.Visit Lava Monastery at afternoon. Overnight stay at Lava(WBFDC-lodge)

Day7:After lunch,depart from Lava(it is heard that more transport is available from Lava for NJP)for NJP via Garubathan or via Kalimpong, board at train in evening for Kolkata.

Please suggest regarding the tour plan (specialy in order of the destinations).We are 3 in family.

Any friend who have visited these destinations recently may please advice regarding the following quiries:-

1.Is this period is suitable for this tour in respect of weather condition?
2.Is bus service/share vehicle available from Siliguri to Kalimpong(as we
are only 3,hiring a cab may be expensive).If avaible, from where?
3.Is share vehicle is available from Kalimpong to Lolegaon?
4.As per iterney, destination > Lolegaon(1N) > Rishop(1N) > Lava(1N) > NJP.
Is it Ok, or Lava(1N)> Rishop(1N) > Lolegaon(1N) > NJP is better?
5.If we don't stay at Rishop rather stay 2N at Lava(Keeping Rishop as side
tour from Lava)is it more tour-healthy?
6.WBTDC-Hilltop at Kalimpong(being a govt resort)is comfortable or not?
7.Is there any update on the Canopy bridge in Lolaygoan. Is it in working
condition now?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

first of all nice nick & location


Answers of your quarries:

1. yes

2. yes........for bus; better to go Siliguri bus stand.......plenty of share jeeps are found in NJP.........if you reach within 08:00 am, you may get an NBSTC bus, but dont rely on me or that bus service

3. yes

4. both almost ok.......you may try the first one

5. obviously healthy........ at least healthy for your mental health.......you'll need not to digest the sharp words from respected "bhabi'ji" while she've to pack and unpack everyday according to the first itinerary

by the way, Rishop is only 10km by road........and only 4km if prefer to trek through beautiful landscape

6. yeh, its comfortable according to their tariff price

7. WELL! the pic taken first week of this month:

Hi,

I have almost finalized the plan ...
Day 1 - NJP to Lava. Night stay at Dupka Cottage of WBFDC.
Day 2 - Lava/Lolengaon s/s. Back in afternoon. Trek to Rishop after lunch. Night stay at Hotel Kanchan View.
Day 3 - Roam around Rishop and trek back to Lava. Take shared ride to reach Darjeeling. Probably via Kalimpong. Stay at Alice Villa.
Day 4 - Darjeeling S/s including joy ride.
Day 5 - Back to NJP via malli. Will check if rafting is possible or not. Catch train in night.

Any suggestion ?
Can you suggest if I am missing something important ?

Many many thanks PKanti. Specially snap of current condition of Canopy bridge.
As per your advice I first go to find share vehicle from NJP, If not available, then go to Siliguri for the same. Is it Ok ?
Another point--
On the last day I will have to check out at 11 AM from Lava as I have already booked WBFDC lodge. My train at NJP at 9PM(Padatik Exp)If there any spot nearby where I shall visit on the way of NJP to cover up the big time gap ?
Please suggest.
Thank you once again.
