National Highway 31A (NH 31A in short) links Gangtok to Sevoke on NH 31. Kalimpong is located off this 92 kilometres (57 mi) long highway. [1]


NH 31A now changed as NH 10 (National Highway 10) runs along the banks of the Teesta River. A travel writer has described the route as follows: “The four-hour ride to Gangtok from Bagdogra Airport (45 minutes by plane from Kolkata) is thrilling. The swift Teesta clears her serpentine track through slopes of bamboo and wild banana trees that rise to conifers towering like cathedral pillars and orchids.”[2]
