The train, the tea, and the hills bring visitors to Darjeeling, one of India's most famous and well-preserved Raj-era hill stations.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Mahakal Temple and Barbotey Rock Garden. There's still lots to do: meet the residents at Padmaja Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park, take some stellar pictures from Tiger Hill, examine the collection at Himalayan Mountaineering Institute, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Japanese Peace Pagoda.
