North east of India is considered the most serene and beautiful part of the country. Darjeeling is a Himalayan city located in the state of West Bengal in the western part of India. Ever since, Darjeeling has been a hot spot for visitors from within and outside the country. It has now grown into being a very renowned international tourist destination. Tourists visit Darjeeling to seek harmony with nature that thrive on the hills. A Darjeeling package tour is recommendable to all who would love to have a peaceful holiday in the lap of beautiful hills and tea gardens. If you are on a north east travel, do make it a point to visit to Gangtok and kalimpong since they are also some of the best loved destinations in north east travel.

North east tourism takes you to team gardens of Darjeeling. The tea grown here is famous over the world for its exotic flavours and aroma. The tea gardens are distributed well across Darjeeling and contribute to its beautiful expanses of scenic vistas. There are numerous small and big tea estates in Darjeeling that produce various types of tea. A visit to these estates in north east tourism is time well spent in the region.

The mall road is the most famous place for shopping and restaurants and is the commercial street of Darjeeling. The observatory hill gives you an ecstatic view of the majestic Kanchenjunga range. You can sit on the cosy benches sprawled all over the hill to enjoy the beauty of nature while the clouds play with the hills. A Darjeeling package tour will give you a glimpse of the Mt. Everest and for that you need to visit the Tiger Hill. You must not miss the view of the sunrise from the Tiger Hill early in the morning. It is very chilly that early in the morning but it is a chance not to be missed. Under Darjeeling package tour, you can also visit the Darjeeling zoo and experience the cable trolley ropeways.

Nature will come alive when you zip through the air or take a fun ride on the toy train in Darjeeling. St Andrew’s church and the Gymkhana club are other famous tourist spots in Darjeeling that are part of north east tourism. Around 8 kms from Darjeeling is the Dhoom Gompa where you can find a beautiful statue of Maitrayie Buddha. You can also visit the famous Batasia loop, the War memorial, tea gardens, Buddhist monasteries, Himalayan zoological park and snow leopard breeding centre in your Darjeeling travel. North east tourism packages can give you a memorable trip to this beautiful place to remember forever. Darjeeling is a mesmerising hill station and the tranquillity of the Himalayas and Kanchenjunga add to its beauty.

North east travel will definitely cover Darjeeling along with Gangtok. Gangtok, which comes under the Sikkim state, is hardly any distance from Darjeeling and has some beautiful mountains and cascading waterfalls. The Nathula pass that is 56 km from Gangtok, is a spot that no tourist should miss. It stands at an altitude of 14450 feet bordering India and China in the Tibetan Plateau. It is the highest drivable road in India and has a rich variety of flora and fauna. Visit these great spots and spend your time well in the lap of glorious northeastern nature.
