Siliguri & New Jalpaiguri in detail


Most of Siliguri’s hotels, restaurants and services are spread along riotously noisy Hill Cart Rd (Tenzing Norgay Rd), especially in the vicinity of Siliguri Junction train station and its neighbour, the Tenzing Norgay Central Bus Terminus. The cacophonous, choking junction where traffic from these stations emerges direct on to Hill Cart Rd is a focal point for other transport services too, albeit one you'll only want to go near when necessary. Branching northeastward off Hill Cart Rd are Siliguri’s other main streets, Sevoke and Bidhan Rds. The main train station, however, with many more departures than Siliguri Junction, is New Jalpaiguri (NJP), 6km south at the end of NJP Station Rd.
