Sikkim to Chennai

Hi

Can anyone advise my husband and I about travelling from Sikkim to Chennai please?

We hope to travel by trains as much as possible, staying in guest houses or hostels along the way.

We plan to do this in June/ July

Thanks Mrs Purcell

Nearest rail head is New Jalpaiguri and airport is Bagdogra,around 4 hr by road from Gangtok.No daily train to Chennai,weekly trains on Friday,Monday and Wednesday but will take around 40-45 hr.One option is to break your journey at Kolkata,many daily trains/flight to Kolkata and then again daily trains to Chennai.You can check train details https://m.etrain.info/in-TBS here. If planning to use train then you need to book in advance.

No direct flight to Chennai but can take flight via different city like Kolkata.

Can check flight details www.skyscanner.net or www.cleartrip.in

Great to hear someone traveling all the way from Sikkim to Chennai! That includes a lot of stops. You can find many hostels along the way, and you may book them through Indian hostel booking website AAO Hostels or international websites like hostelworld. You can also download mobile app through Google Playstore.

Hope you enjoy your journey! :)
