The train, the tea, and the hills bring visitors to Darjeeling, one of India's most famous and well-preserved Raj-era hill stations.
Step off the beaten path and head to Parasailing & Paragliding and Tinchuley Village. Explore Darjeeling's surroundings by going to Pine View Nursery (in Kalimpong) and Namchi (Siddheswar Dham & Char Dham). There's still lots to do: get great views at Tiger Hill, take in the views from Coronation Bridge, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mahakal Temple, and take in nature's colorful creations at Varsey Rhododendron Sanctuary.
