The Darjeeling Toy Train or the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway (DHR) train services need no introduction to a heritage-lover. With the winter festivities set in, Darjeeling is set to witness a delightful addition to the DHR legacy as a part of the Ghum Winter Festival 2022 that has been conceptualised to promote DHR and celebrate the festive season.
The Ghum Winter Festival will be on from 12 November – 4 December 2022, and as a part of the celebrations, is the surprise “Special Night Joy Rides”‘ with DHR – a first in its history!This means that the DHR will be operating its much-beloved heritage train services post sundown from Ghum – India’s highest located railway station through the heritage route.
The Ghum Winter Festival will feature food stalls, live music, talent hunt, exhibitions and much more and is expected to boost the tourism of Darjeeling in a big way.
