Rivers

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]
