Road to Darjeeling - Into the Clouds

As we progressed further we did literally pass through clouds, but of course that does not make a very good picture.  We did though also pass through a number of small villages and towns on our way.

 

 

Some of the properties built along the hillside.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The train crosses right across the main road with shops and market stalls on both sides.  At times the train is close enough to take goods from the stalls.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We also passed the down train from Darjeeling along the way.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the end of a station platform doubling up as a market stall.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On arrival we discovered that the packets of crisps that we had brought in Siliguri had inflated due to the changes in atmospheric pressure.
