At a distance of 82 km from Siliguri, it takes about 3 hours to reach Samsing from Siliguri through the most picturesque landscape. Situated at an elevation of 3000ft, Samsing is a nice cool shady place, ideal for nature lovers. The journey to Samsing is a memorable one, as you slowly ride uphill from Meteley through the most picturesque Dooars tea garden on the rolling hill slopes.
I took this snap from our moving car, as I was passing by this garden owned by the company 'Goodrick'.

This is a nice and typical post from the tea gardens up from Jhalong near Samsing. These areas look so different from the tea gardens down below, as they are up by 400 mtrs on a flatter land compared to those below. The artifact of the moving car is just visible in the foreground (left) but still this is a good shot.
I managed a few shots coming down from the car in early October when I was around these places... you can find in my gallery. But this season, it must be even gorgeous with a bright sky and chill around.

The lush green landscape and spectacular sky are well captured from a moving train; I particularly like the clarity of the colors. I've taken many such shots and few are as good as this one.
