By Ajay Kumar Subscribe to RSS | April 13th 2012 | Views:

Situated amid scraggy Himalayan peaks and dotted with dandy tea plantations, enchanting rain-forests, and cascading waterfalls, Darjeeling is really a scenic paradise that entice nature-loving tourists from far and wide. This archetypal hill station is one of the premium holiday attractions of West Bengal famous for its scintillating natural beauty and scrumptious weather all through the year. Besides this, alluring colonial-buildings, splendid temples & shrines, botanical gardens and enchanting flora & fauna provide the Darjeeling visitors an exotic holiday experience. With a customized Darjeeling package tour, you can enjoy the mesmerizing beauty of this tiny heaven and can add some wonderful moments in your memorabilia.

Sights & Activities in Darjeeling

When you’re in Darjeeling, you have a number of things to do and see. From amazing mountain views to spectacular toy-train journey, and mesmerizing trekking to eye-catching tea plantations, a Darjeeling tour offers the visitors with an array of vacation attractions to discover. An electric mix of traditions & cultures, quality dining & wining, and heart-throbbing adventures also add delights to one’s holiday in Darjeeling.

Undoubtedly, superb Himalayan views are the premium attraction of Darjeeling. With a backdrop of jagged Himalayan peaks, Darjeeling offers wonderful scenery that can leave anyone spellbound. The horizon is dominated by the Khangchendzanga, the highest peak in India. However, views from lookout along Bhanu bhakta Sarani are also stunning to see in clear weather. Getting to the Tiger Hills, about 10km from Darjeeling, can set your eyes to the spectacular stretch of Himalayan skyline that includes the cloud-kissing peaks of Everest (8848m) and Lhotse (8501m).

Wonderful tea plantations below Hill Cart Rd are also worth visiting, especially when plucking and processing are in process. Sanctified to both Hindu and Buddhists, the observatory Hill is also a popular tourist spot in Darjeeling. Below the crest of the hill is a holy shrine in a small cave dedicated to Mahakala – an incarnation of Lord Shiva. Scenic Buddhist monasteries such as Bhutia Busty Gompa and Yiga Choling Gompa offer the visitors a healing retreat with alluring serenity and spiritualism.

The Best time to Visit

The peak tourist season in Darjeeling is after the monsoon (October to November) and the spring (mid-March to May). During these seasons, the weather remains pleasant and the sky turns clear. Tourist attractions do also extend their working hours in the peak tourist time. As most of Darjeeling hotels get occupied very soon during this time, it’s worth booking well ahead while planning for Darjeeling tour.

Nowadays, many travel agencies arrange Darjeeling tour customized according to one’s needs and budget. Along with all major sightseeing, a Darjeeling package tour includes accommodation, meals, transportations, and arrangement for many adventurous activities. To buy a suitable tour package, be it the Darjeeling package tour or a holiday package for Kashmir, dealing with a reliable source is crucial.
