The train, the tea, and the hills bring visitors to Darjeeling, one of India's most famous and well-preserved Raj-era hill stations.
Take a break from the city and head to Tonglu and Tinchuley Village. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Japanese Peace Pagoda and Mahakal Temple. There's much more to do: get to know the resident critters at Padmaja Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park, look for gifts at Life and Leaf Fair Trade Shop, take in the spiritual surroundings of Guru Sakya Monastery, and get great views at Tiger Hill.

To find maps, traveler tips, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Darjeeling trip itinerary planning website .

New Delhi to Darjeeling is an approximately 4.5-hour combination of flight and taxi. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and taxi. When traveling from New Delhi in October, plan for little chillier days and about the same nights in Darjeeling: temperatures range from 36°C by day to 24°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Sat) early enough to drive to Gangtok.
