Hotels

  • It is very difficult to complete this route in 1 day. My suggestion would be to spend 1st night in Malda. You can check Hotel Paromita.
  • If you are not able to complete this route on the second day. then you can spend your 2nd night at Siliguri. You can check Hotel Olive.

Tips

  • Start as early as possible. It will be best if you start your journey at 4 AM.
  • Don’t eat heavy foods otherwise, you will feel sleepy. recommended to carry portion bars.
