Apologies for the delay, but my work / travel pressure and 2 threads on Ladakh was keeping me busy... DAY 4 contd...
This was to be our last night relaxing. Yes we still had one more night before we reached Kolkata but that was enroute and supposedly not part of the tour. So though I & the Xylo had a long day ahead we both still decided to have a night out.
The onward journey from kolkata to Siliguri was pathetic for me as a driver, the passengars for a traveller and the Xylo as a carrier. So based on advice of some fellow members Rahul 4640, Anis, Samarjit I decided to takeBhagalpur, Dumka, Illambazar route on the return journey. It was 92 km excess but my friends told me its worth it.
Here is Partho starting to check on the places enroute and hotels if available. In the background what can be seen is clouds, but on a clear weather it is the Kunchenjungha (India's highest and World's 3rd highest peak) which is visble.
We then had a final farewell bash on the balcony overlooking the tea gardens, the kunchenjungha (we could not see it, but believed it was still there) while Jijo, my son had his final hurrah in the room with Partho's laptop and his dinner
