Your Sightseeing plan looks like perfect one for a 2N/3D trip in Darjeeling.

One Sugg.:
If you start early (at least 9:30-10 am) and your return train is Darjeeling Mail you should return through Ghoom-Simana-Mirik-Siliguri Road.
You will surely reach before 6 pm in NJP. Take your lunch at Mirik lake side.

***You will get the information from my Trip Report

Thank you dcyouth for your advice. So that will be the plan for 26th after 3 point visit. Will go through your trip report.

Just wondering how to spend time during evening? Some nice restaurant tips ? Glenary I have selected for 24th January. Idea for 25th January dinner? Also As we will be staying at Revolver's hope these eateries are at walk able distance? For breakfast Keventer's. Any other idea?

Thank you.
