Hi Fellow IMites,

Kindly suggest an itinerary for my forthcoming stay at Murti (WBFDC accommodation) for :

10 Jan 2013 : dep from Murti from Siliguri/NJP around 12:00 noon
12 Jan 2013 : dep from Murti to NJP (Darj Mail from NJP) - preferred itinerary from the lodge en route NJP station

Also need advice on transportation options incl. price ideas ex. Siliguri - car/bus.

Thanks in advance,

Since you have 2 days for Murti, the itenary as follows is possible

Day 1- Take car from NJP and reach Murti by 2 pm if you start at 12 noon from NJP, rest of the day is left for relaxation.
Day 2- Enjoy morning by Murti River, then after breakfast start for whole day sight seeing to Samsing, Bindu, Suntaleykhola, Jaldhaka and if possible Rocky island. Then return to hotel at Murti
Day 3- Go for early morning Jungle Safari to Gorumara or Chapramari, get tickets from the ticket counter at Lataguri, after Safari come back and then by 1pm start for NJP and while returning stop at Mongpong to have a view of the mountains nearby, then start for NJP and board your train.

You will get many cars at NJP and go for the best transportation option. A small car would cost 1500-1700 to Murti.

Another Q :
Pls suggest whether I should retain the car that I hire for my entire duration i.e., 10/01 pickup till 12 Jan drop at NJP ?
If yes, usually how much should I pay ?

For 2 days it is not advisable to retain it for entire trip. You should arrange car for sight seeing and for drop and return from Lataguri for ticket booking from Murti. If the trip was for longer time then a car for entire trip would be a good deal. Rest is your decision
