When you travel to India for adventure or to explore beautiful places, you should visit Darjeeling. Darjeeling is a town in India’s West Bengal state, in the Himalayan foothills at the altitude of 6,700 feet. It takes 3 – 4 hours by car from Siliguri. Nearest airport is the bagdogra airport. Once it was a summer resort for the British Raj elite, boasts of the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, or “Toy Train,” completed in 1881 and it is a UNESCO world heritage site. It’s famous for the distinctive black tea grown on plantations that are in the surrounding slopes. Its backdrop is Mt. Kanchenjunga, among the world’s highest peaks.
You should try a “Toy train” ride. It’s a fun ride or what you call a joy ride. You should visit the Tiger Hill in the early morning to see the sunrise and the Kanchenjunga. You should also visit the zoo and the mountaineering museum both situated together. You should also visit the rock garden which is very beautiful.
The nearby places are Kalimpong and Mirik. Again very beautiful places worth visiting.
I recommend to travel, visit in october when you can watch the sunrise very clearly. It’s an amazing site worth watching. When I go I spend a lot of time in the Mall. It’s a place that gives me a lot of peace. You can see some photographs below.
