Darjeeling tourism: Take a chilly hilly voyage in the north east

Besides, the hills have a rich flora and fauna owing to its receipt of heavy monsoon.
While the Himalayas are really rapturous presenting some of the most beautiful view points like the Tiger Hills, there are plenty of tea gardens around that are bound to evoke nostalgia. North east travel is synonymous with tea estates and you can actually stroll into these gardens, have a look into the tea leaves & tea workers and even dress up as a tea worker (special costumes are provided) for that perfect snapshot. The Botanical Gardens is another crowd-pulling place and is known for some of the oldest & rare plants & trees.

A far cry from the maddening artificiality of the metropolitan city, Darjeeling’s charm lies in sightseeing spots like Batasia Loop, Himalayan Railway, Happy Valley Tea Estate and Zoological Park. The Darjeeling zoo is one place where you can spot a panda, a rarity in a tropical country like India.

In Darjeeling, you will also come across some religious corners like the Dhir Dham Temple which is sedate and holy.
Lying in the neighborhood is the spectacular Gangtok which is yet another soothing and panoramic place. Under the Gangtok tourism, you can explore the beautiful sights of Tashi View Point, the devout Rumtek Monastery, the Ganesh or Hanuman Tok and the refulgent Banjhakari Falls. Another great thing about Gangtok tourism is that is it very economic and suits the budget of the masses.

With some friendly locals to guide you and horse-rides and local markets to woo you, your Darjeeling tourism shall be an exotic, romantic affair.
