DARJEELING – The local favorite
Darjeeling is a snug hill station that sits atop an elevation of 2042 meters covered by pruned tea estates. Enveloped in a pleasing weather throughout the year, this place has been hailed as a local favorite since colonial times on account of the never-ending stock of all the eclectic sightseeing places it has in store.
This isolated hillock came into the notice of the British during the colonial rule and impressed with its serene environment, they planned on resurrecting a sanatorium for the ailing British soldiers in the land of Dorje Ling. Now the place is vividly imprinted with the remnants of their visit. This pulsing town is an aesthetic amalgamation of British & the local ethnic culture that offers unique visual blends to every tourist that arrives. Artfully dotted with traditional monasteries, European themed buildings, emerald tea gardens, the hustling Toy Train and panoramic views of the Himalayan outstretches -
Darjeeling is a place to be in, time and again. Since visiting this Queen of the Hills just once is never enough.
