Ghoom | Darjeeling Himalayan Railway

WI_in140.jpg

Hill Cart Road near Batasia Loop. The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway - also known as Toy Train - started its operation in 1881 and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999. This narrow gauge mountain railway connects New Jalpaiguri and Darjeeling, even though in 2017 only part of the track is served due to major landslide damages.
