Hi,

I am planning to visit darjeeling district on october. I heard few interesting place like kolakham, rishop, lava, lolegaon, charkhol, pedong, kalimpong. I need help to create my itinerary for a trip of 9-10 days. I'll be travelling from kolkata. I don't want to cover all the place in one attempt. Please suggest trip plan.

few thing pls keep in mind while making the itinerary:
- like to stay trip last two days in darjeeling.
- trip should not be very much hectic.
- pls share the hotel details (budget Rs. 700 to Rs.1500). prefer hotel which has good view.
- train would be either kanchankanya or darjeeling mail.
- travelling persons age fall between 28-30. no kid.

Your planning sounds good to me. You may consider only one change : From Kolakham you may go to Charkhol First & then Rishop. Otherwise you have go all the way back to Charkhol from Rishop & Then again to Darjeeling through the same road.

You've chosen good hotels . For Darjeeling you may consider WBTDC tourist Lodge (annex building ) .

Hi Arup,

Thanks for your input.

to clarify,
if I go like this NJP-> Kolakham -> Rishop-> Darjeeling (Via Kalimpong delo), it will be good?? I am planning to skip charkhol.

I have another concern about the transport. Please suggest the transportation plan. you can share driver contact details also if you have.

You travelling alone or with family? Please note that Kolakham is absolutely secluded thus the only entertainment out there is the silence and the wilderness. I had my 4 year old daughter with me when i went there and she got bored quite quickly. Thus plan lot of casual walks etc. and enjoy the unlimited nature.
