Gangtok and Darjeeling Tour Itinerary
Transfer to Darjeeling via Mirik by taxi (this is a longer but scenic route. Takes about 4.5 hours. Pre-paid taxis take shorter route. So you will need to pay a bit extra to the driver or take a separate taxi. You will see Mirik lake and lovely tea gardens on the way). However this is possible if you reach NJP/Bagdogra in the first half. Otherwise take the usual route (3.5 hours). Night stay in Darjeeling.
