It is one of the best scenic rail routes that travelers must never miss. The train journey lets you encounter eye-catching views of lush green trees and beautiful Chilika Lake on the way. While passing through the jungle, you might see a few migratory birds that usually move during monsoons. Hence, train travel from Bhubaneswar to Berhampur lets you experience pleasing aspects of nature and wildlife.
We suggest taking the toy train ride from the route between Kalka to Shimla during the rainy season. It will take you on a train trip over a narrow gauge railway and let you feel the alluring and mesmerizing atmosphere and nearby hill towns during monsoons.

Monsoon months are the best time to take the train from New Jalpaiguri to Ghoom in Darjeeling. Darjeeling is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the toy train between NJM and Ghoom has been one of its admired facilities. You will witness stunning views of landscapes by taking the train route. However, you won’t be seeing the great Himalayan peaks like Mt. Kanchenjunga as a path does not cross near these locations. But, its ancient mountain route can perfectly compensate for it. The route also lets you encounter the colonial charm by showcasing tunnels and structures made of old bricks.
