Driving down to Lolegaon is not very difficult. If you are planning to drive from nearby regions, then the ride is smooth. However, if you intend to take the car as an alternate to the train, then it's not a very feasible option. The nearest town is Kalimpong, about 55 km away. Siliguri is about 4 hrs drive covering 124 km to Lolegaon. Buses are also available from nearby places and sometimes, even from Kolkata.
Travelling by rail is another feasible option. The New Jalpaiguri Station is the closest to Lolegaon. The station is well connected to places such as Kolkata, New Delhi, Chenna and Mumbai. From here as well, you will have to hire a cab.
Travelling within the city is mainly done on tourist jeeps and cars. There are three wheelers available in and around the market place, but their availability is not very dependable. However, nearly every hotel does provide its own tourist vehicles for extra fees. But if going to the hills, then remember, that trekking is not just feasible, it is also an experience of a kind.
