Frolicking in the Lap of the Himalayas at Pulungdung

It’s been one and half years since our last tour in October 2019, and we were desperately gasping for breath. But the second wave of the pandemic was on its way. After weighing a few options, and keeping in mind the dates of polling in West Bengal, we zeroed in on a destination in the same state which, we thought, would be less crowded, but we would not have to compromise on the scenic beauty. So we landed at Pulungdung, aka Plungdung.

Day 1 – April 11, 2021 : Part 1

It would be a long day as per our plan, and hence we boarded the earliest flight to Bagdogra from Kolkata.

Our flight landed before time, and after taking at a tea break at Dudhia, soon we were on our way through a scenic route of north Bengal.

Unknowingly we had boarded a mafia staff car!

The tea gardens and the pine trees in the azure backdrop helped us rejuvenate.

It was Sunday morning, and the favourite time for electioneering. A long rally forced us to lose an hour in a traffic snarl in the narrow roads of Mirik. We reached Manebhanjan and had to change car for onward journey.
