Drive tour from metro city to Himalayas (Kolkata to Kalimpong)

Recommended Posts

The winter vacation was coming and my car was just back from the mandatory scheduled service. And this was the year end time with the chill setting.

Perfect timing for going for a road trip to the mountains. .


We made a quick plan to visit the Kalimpong hill station this winter. The Morgan House was quickly booked from the West Bengal Tourism Department website. We planned to have a halt at Malda (as suggested by the forum, thanks for that ).



The plan was to :
1. Day 1 : Travel to Malda from Kolkata
2. Day 2 : Travel to Jalpaiguri from Malda
3. Few days stay at Jalpaiguri
4. Travel to Kalimpong from Jalpaiguri.


I got my car serviced, tires checked and the travel kit ready. This was time to hit the road.

The vlog of the trip is uploaded here: (I am not sure how to add YoutTube videos to the forum. I am able to see the option to add only the link :(

How do I attach the video with post so that it shows up with the thumbnail and embedded video in the post and not as a link only?

Just trying out video embedding:

No luck...
