Darjeeling Tour

Darjeeling is a popular hill station in northeast India at an elevation of 2,134m, hemmed in by Sikkim in the north, Nepal in the west and Bhutan in the east. Darjeeling district is now known by the official name Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council, under which three major hill towns-Darjeeling town, Kalimpong & Kurseong are very popular. Its verdant hills and valleys are steeped in color and are interspersed with vast stretches of lush green tea gardens. Presiding over all these is the 8,586m Mt. Kanchanjunga looming over the northern horizon, giving a magical aura to the land that entices thousands to its environs and leaves all the senses intoxicated. Heavily influenced by British India, Darjeeling still retains legacies of its colonial past. The toy train is one of the most striking examples of Darjeeling's British Raj influence.
