At breakneck speed, the mind is drawn only to Darjeeling. Photos of friends hiking with him all over Facebook make it even more disturbing. But you can’t go on a tour if you want. Wear more or less if you go on a trip. While choosing a destination is easy, tickets, hotel reservations, transportation arrangements—all must be planned before leaving home. You can’t go out with the bag if you want. But the biggest concern is the budget. Plan your trip keeping your pocket in mind. Now you can visit the hill villages of North Bengal at very low cost. Here are some tips on how to plan a full tour for less.
1) Find low budget destinations
The first thing to do while traveling is to choose a destination. Now there are many places to visit. But you should choose a place where the cost is less. There are many hill villages in Kalimpong, Karshiang and Darjeeling which can be visited at a small cost. Many hill villages like Lamahada, Tinchule, Ramdura, Monsang, Petang, Mirik, Lingche, Kafargaon are easily accessible. Check the places and select the destination.
2) Choose the right homestay
When traveling on a budget in the state of Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, no one spends a night in a hotel. Everyone chooses hostel. It is very cost effective. But North Bengal does not have that kind of hostel facility. Here is the homestay. An opportunity to spend the night in the lap of a secluded hill. Eating and drinking just like home. Hospitality is also very good. Most homestays cost around Rs 1,200 to 2,000 per person including meals. So check it out and book.
3) Use public transport
If you want to reach your destination by hiring a car from New Jalpaiguri Station, New Mall Junction or Bagdogra Airport, you need to pull the trigger. At least 5,000 rupees should be spent on transportation alone. Opt for public transport instead. This will reduce your cost. With him you can interact with local people.
4) Travel in off season
From homestays to car rentals, prices also increase as everyone travels. Apart from that, it is very difficult to get vacancies in homestays. So visit during some visiting hours. Now North Bengal is flooded with Bengali tourists throughout the year. So what is the way? Choose an offbeat destination. There is little tourist traffic there. If you go there, you will get peace of nature. And the pocket will not strain.
