    Urgent: Is it safe to travel to Darjeeling?

    Some of my relatives are visiting Kolkata and are planning a short 3 days trip to Darjeeling too. However, newspapers have reported about the uprising in Darjeeling & that there will be a large rally on May 30th.

    Can members who stay in/around Darjeeling please let me know if it is safe to visit Darjeeling & go sight-seeing there?

    Thanks in advance.

    Instead of staying in Darjeeling it is advisable to stay at siliguri. As per Darjeeling police the place is not safe for tourist.

    after the death of Gorkha leader Madan Tamang Section 144 have been imposed in the hill town.

    Thanks, Subhajit for your advice. My relatives avoided Darjeeling altogether.
