For ten of thousands of visitors from Kolkata and the steamy plains Darjeeling has been the place to get away from the summer heat. Built on a crescent-shaped ridge Darjeeling is summoned by hills which are thickly covered with coniferous forests and terraced tea gardens. The idyllic setting, the exhilarating air outside town, and stunning views of the Kangchendzonga range - when you can see through the clouds - attract plenty of trekkers too.
Treat yourself to an old fashioned ways of the British Raj, with great ambience and varied cuisines at these fine dining restaurants, or walk into an old cafe to enjoy the local delicacies.
Local handicrafts & tea are the top picks to shop in Darjeeling. Curious shops down The Mall, Chowrasta & HD Lama road are a must visit.
A day tour itinerary from a pleasant walk, chaos of Chowrasta, Darjeeling has its own charm for sight seeing.
