By Aanchal Gupta Subscribe to RSS | January 5th 2012 | Views:

A Darjeeling trip is thoroughly recommended to anyone looking for a peaceful holiday in the lap of nature amidst scenic hills and dense foliage. Heading to the north east, a tour of Gangtok is also a fine way of complementing your Darjeeling tours. This essay has been written to present some of the magical postcards of Darjeeling in its true glory.

Darjeeling, situated in north-east India in the state of Bengal, is one of the most pacific and soothing places in the world. Engulfed by the majestic Himalayas and looking over deep, bottomless valleys, Darjeeling is an exotic gateway to a hilly paradise where tourists get wooed and besotted. Several books and films have captured the quintessential beauty of this place to pull tourists from all over the world. With plenty of sightseeing activities and captivating panorama, one can say with certainty that a Darjeeling trip must feature in your ‘Places to visit before I die’.

Some of the hotspots of Darjeeling include the following:

a.Tiger Hill: A scenic view point, the popular Tiger Hill provides a breathtaking view of sunrise and alongside, is a good opportunity for lovers of walking, hiking and jogging.

b.Toy train: The toy train ride is one of the essential ingredients of your Darjeeling tours. Its rich heritage and memory-evoking voyage shall definitely stir some emotions but the pleasant scenery it shall offer of the surroundings will leave you awed and hypnotized.

c.War memorial: The war memorial (also known as the Gorkha memorial) in Ghoom is a memorial built in warm memories & homage of the Gorkha martyrs who lost their lives in war. While this place has historical significance, Ghoom itself is an enchantingly beautiful spot.

d.Ropeway of Rangeet Valley: The ropeway at Rangeet Valley offers a thrilling, exciting ride down the cables as you get a bird’s eye view of the magnificent hills, ravines and rivers from such a stupendous height of over 7,000 feet.

e.Darjeeling Zoo: The famous Zoological Gardens/Park of Darjeeling is one of the hottest destinations since it houses some of the most endangered animals including the snow leopards, the Siberian tigers, the mountain goats and the red panda.

f.Observatory Hill or the Mall Road: Your Darjeeling tours will be rendered incomplete without visiting the prominent Observatory Hill (locally known as Mall). It is a bustling, clean, vehicle-free place where you can shop around and buy souvenirs, handicrafts, paintings, Darjeeling tea and other items. This place is famous for observing beguiling views of the Kanchenjangha Mountain. The Mahakal temple of Lord Shiva is a sedate place and the food courts provide some mouth-watering stuff.

g.Tour of Gangtok: It would be ideal to have a small tour of Gangtok alongside your Darjeeling trip. Gangtok is noted for its splendid lakes, hills, charming atmosphere and the holy monasteries.
