Darjeeling is well connected to other cities by air and road but not by train.
The Bagdogra International Airport near Siliguri is the nearest airport with multiple direct flights to major cities like New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, and Chennai. If you’re keen on traveling by road, the only other way to get to Darjeeling is to take a bus or a taxi cab from Siliguri or New Jalpaiguri. If you are up for a slow seven-hour ride up the mountains while taking in the picturesque beauty of Darjeeling, consider boarding a toy train from Jalpaiguri or Siliguri.
