  • You will be collected from your hotel and taken to the local station for a short toy train ride to Ghoom.
  • The toy train of Darjeeling Himalayan Railway (DHR), given heritage status by UNESCO, covers the distance of 88 km between New Jalpaiguri station and Darjeeling. This fascinating narrow gauge steam engine train still operates with the original steam engine and the loops and the zig-zags along the route are remarkable feats of engineering. We will take a short ride on the train and detrain at Ghoom and visit the local monastery.
  • Located about 7km from Darjeeling town at an altitude of about 7,407ft, Ghoom is one of the oldest Tibetan Buddhist monasteries in Darjeeling. Built in the year 1850, it is also known as Yiga Choeling Monastery. One of the key attractions here is the 15-foot model of the Buddha which is known as The Maitreya Buddha or the Gyalwa Shampa which means the Buddha of the future or the Coming Buddha. This is one of the biggest and oldest statues of Buddha in Darjeeling area. The statue was created with clay which was brought from Tibet.
