The original road to Darjeeling from the plains was known as the Hill Cart Road, a reminder to the British time when bullock carts used to ply on this hilly road. The road was later renamed after Tenzing Norgey, the famous mountaineer. However the old name stuck and it is still referred to by its original name by most people. It is also the National Highway 110 (previously state highway 55). This historical road is rarely used by tourists now a days as some shorter routes have come up over the years. The most popular route is known as the Rohini road. From the Airport to Rohini is about an hours drive and 30 km. At Rohini we start climbing the hills and with a steep climb within half an hour we will reach an altitude of about 5000 feet to reach Kurseong (about 15 km). From Kurseong we will follow the Hill cart road, the inclination is no longer stiff and on a clear day, you will get mesmerizing views of the surrounding hills including views of Mt. Kancenjunga. About an hours drive and 25 km later you will reach Ghum, the highest rail station in India. Once you cross Ghum you are on the outskirts of Darjeeling town, though the main town market area is further 7 km away. This last 7 km can be congested during busy hours as this is the main road entering the hillstation.
