This train passes through the city which is very filthy. Not something that you like to witness on a holiday. The local health departments need to take a serious note in the upkeep of this beautifully located hill station.

It was a nostalgic trip as we took the joy ride of the Darjeeling Toy Train from Darjeeling to Ghoom and Back. The journey was of 2 hours and a little expensive. We paid approx 1100 per person. Overall a great experience

Toy train is a lifetime ride, kids enjoy more. Darjeeling is the place surrounding by tea gardens and mountains or hills which will be covered by toy train ride. Must visit if you are there. I personally took thrice.

If you like historical trains then you should definitely book a ticket for the toy steam train. It's a tourist train so don't expect a lo am experience. Still it's fun, comfortable and beautiful. Locals go by the much faster and cheaper jeeps.

The ticket cost is 1200 per head is too expensive, the journey is not that worth. The train passes through crowded markets and you will hardly enjoy the view of the valley or the mountains. its construction everywhere and not even an inch of space...More
