While inside the train, you’ll pass through the scenic beauty that you’ll appreciate. You’ll spot pine trees, oak, valleys, deodar and forests.
Darjeeling Himalayan Railway (Jalpaiguri to Darjeeling)
Another destination that you should consider is Jalpaiguri to Darjeeling. The route follows a series of beautiful landscapes, altitudes and climate changes that will amaze you constantly. Since Jalpaiguri is a plain, the hill station in Darjeeling serves delicious tea that will freshen you up. You’ll pass by tea gardens and forests that will transport you to another world.
Vasco Da Gama to Londa
During this journey, you’ll pass by the pristine Goan villages going from Vasco Da Gama in Goa to Londa in Karnataka. As you go on your journey, the train will move up to the Western Ghats, allowing you to see lush greenery and mountains. The view will change from this to waterfalls, stealing the show and making it hard for you to determine which from the scenery is more beautiful.
Mumbai to Goa
If you’re a fan of lush green forests, then travelling from Mumbai to Goa is the best journey for you.
