Top 7 ways to travel India and my route from Pelling to Kolkata to Varanasi.
1. From Pelling West Sikkim, I take a Jeep Taxi.sikkki Driving through Sikkim, the route is amazing scenic. Sikkim has such untouched and natural beauty,
2. Jortheng : Our jeep did a 15 minute rest stop in Jortheng.
3. The jeep dropped me in Siliguri Junction. where I caught a rickshaw. Not smart, but a lot of taxis were taken and traffic was in peak. I needed to get to Bagdogra Airport.
4. Siliguri to closer Bagodgra Airport entrance I took a public bus that locals hailed for me.
5. The bus makes a drop outside the entrance of Bagodgra Airport. Unfortunately its a bit of a walk to get in, so I needed to hail an auto rickshaw taxi. Good thing about airports is that they always have taxis going in and out.
6. I took a flights from IndiGo Air from Bagodgra to Kolkata. I could’ve opted to fly direct to Varanasi, but I was traveling close to Diwali, so flights to Varanasi were expensive (the cost difference was approximately $50/$200
7. Kolkata Airport, I took a car taxi to Howrah Station. Howrah is a little over an hour from the airport, across Hooghly River ( Watch Best things to do Kolkata: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eq5cQ6mV0WY). However I was traveling during peak traffic …and the day before Durga Puja. Some cities are known to celebrate certain festivals more robustly. Durga Puja in Kolkata is probably comparable to Diwali in Varanasi.
8. Getting from Howrah to Varanasi a comfy 3AC train. Buckle up for the long ride. WATCH MY INDIAN TRAIN EXPERIENCE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovEf_fePLHs
