So here are 6 photos, and the rest 10 would be in the next post...
the train journey in the route of NJP to Alipurduar has been taken many times by me, but it was only this time that i came to know of this gorgeous place called Gulma. Gulma is an abandoned station in the core area of Mahananda Sanctuary, and it comes before the Sevoke bridge. The only other useable info are this wikipedia article and this news item.
travel info will be on next post.
my train had stopped for sometime in that abandoned station, to allow a train coming from the other direction to pass by. like it says in the news article, many forests fall in this train route, and thus only a single tracked railway has been made through the forests.
this stop presented me with one of the most picturesque landscapes i've ever come across!
the foothills of himalayas..
this water body is on the right side of the train, and the whole landscape is very dreamy and like a painting...
this is the only photo i hav of this part of the village.. i dont know why i didn't take any other.. probably one where both the water body and the tree were visible.. but this too, has a painting like imagery, with the cottage and all..
a different angle , + animals = DRATW!!
why the hell not one of the abandoned station itself!
plz share this with your frnds too.. :)
