The train, the tea, and the hills bring visitors to Darjeeling, one of India's most famous and well-preserved Raj-era hill stations.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Darjeeling: Tonglu (in Singalila National Park) and Pine View Nursery (in Kalimpong). The adventure continues: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Padmaja Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park, experience rural life at Happy Valley Tea Estate, take some stellar pictures from Tiger Hill, and admire the natural beauty at Tea Garden.
