The train, the tea, and the hills bring visitors to Darjeeling, one of India's most famous and well-preserved Raj-era hill stations.
Himalayan Mountaineering Institute and Pemayangtse Monastery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore Darjeeling's surroundings by going to Tashiding Monastery (in Yuksam), Gangtok (Palzor Stadium, Tashi View Point, & more) and Sangacholing Monastery (in Pelling). There's lots more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Padmaja Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park, take in the spiritual surroundings of Japanese Peace Pagoda, take in nature's colorful creations at Tea Garden, and make a trip to Batasia Loop.

To find photos, reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Darjeeling trip tool .

Expect a daytime high around 38°C in May, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
