please advice how about the journey if i choose to go darjeeling from NJP via mirik.my travel date is 16th may 2018
Its a nice scenic journey, takes one hour extra than through Rohini or Pankhabari road. What else do you want to know ?
Hello, welcome to the forum. You'll definitely enjoy the nice view. It will take extra time so the fare will be higher. Shared vehicle may not be available and please check the weather before deciding the route. Last week we traveled Darjeeling to NJP via Mirik and couldn't see anything due to heavy rainfall!!
In case you are arriving early in morning choose to Go Mirik lake route as you will enjoy Tea Gardens, Mirik lake, Pashupati Nagar (Nepal Border), Gopal Dhara Tea Gardens and fantastic views.
Personally I would suggest (if you plan is to return back from Darjeeling) to visit on last day enroute NJP/Bagdogra as you will be fresh and will enjoy views down the hills. While going up tiredness of train/flight journey and eagerness to reach Darjeeling before night may hasten things which otherwise be a fantastic scenic route as we did (goo.gl/Sfc5fN)
Hope it helps
