Darjeeling Himalayan Railway

Dating back to the 19th century, the delightful Darjeeling Himalayan Railway uses innovative engineering to make its steep ascent into the Himalayas. The railway's imaginative design features six zigzag reverses and three loops across 54 miles of incredible narrow-gauge track, some of which we experience on our journey from Kurseong to Darjeeling.

Climbing to India's highest railway station, Ghum, which stands at a staggering elevation of 7,218ft, a ride on the affectionately-nicknamed 'Toy Train' offers stunning views of cloud-topped green valleys, rushing waterfalls and the region's famous tea fields. End your journey with a breathtaking panorama of the Kanchenjunga mountain range.
