So in the end we did make it to Darjeeling for Christmas. But oh my God what a mission it turned out to be. Having failed at getting train tickets we managed to arrange a private car to drive us to Siliguri (some 550 kilometres) from where we could catch a mountain jeep a further 3 hours into the Himalayas. We'd been told to expect a journey to …

Travelling is an unavoidable part of travelling...otherwise it would be called staying still.Sometimes the travelling is fun; long haul buses in South America were a pleasure and any flight with views of the Andes for three hours was wonderful.
Sometimes the travelling is functional; no delays, adequate seats, regular rest stops and you arrive …

Singalila will leave you singing

A travel blog entry by lionelrishi

We get up before sunrise – with no sign of clouds or wind and head out outside into the biting cold! It's a good job we went and bought some decent down jackets a few days earlier in Darjeeling, as it must be -10 C, I can’t feel my fingers or toes after standing outside for only a minute!

To say that the panoramic view is …

We wake early and cold, despite the heater being on all night the room doesn't feel much warmer, it is early, but the room doesn't have a window facing the sun, so we will not gain any extra heat there, so we brave the elements and decide to see if there is any hot water. Before we undress we run the water and joy of joys it is really hot - …

We sleep late on the comfortable beds and wake to another sunny warm day. We get our first taste of Darjeeling tea - it is wonderful. I am now back to drinking my tea black with no milk and sugar, but the last cup in the pot can be a little stewed and need a spoonfull of sugar to help it down. Uncle Roy if you are still reading these rambles this …

    Nicely furnished and fairly warm - but at a price!

    This homestay is actually a family run hotel with well furnished, clean rooms, constant hot water, Wifi and very friendly and helpful staff. It's closer to the higher-end hotels and the area surrounding it is a lot less busy than the rest of Darjeeling, though you still have to look in every direction when stepping out onto the streets in case one of the hundreds of taxis, 4X4 transports or even horses rush past.

    Although it's a great place to stay, it does cost a little more than expected (around 1500 Rupees) but if it's cold when your there, it's worth parting with a few hundred rupees more to get hot water and a room heater.
