The train, the tea, and the hills bring visitors to Darjeeling, one of India's most famous and well-preserved Raj-era hill stations.
Popular historic sites such as Japanese Peace Pagoda and Tinchuley Village are in your itinerary. Escape the urban bustle at Padmaja Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park and Parasailing & Paragliding. Explore Darjeeling's surroundings by going to Lava Monastery (in Lava), Tharpa Choling Monastery (in Kalimpong) and Namchi (Char Dham, Saibaba Temple, & more). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at Himalayan Mountaineering Institute, take in the spiritual surroundings of Ghoom Monastery, take an in-depth tour of Darjeeling Himalayan Railway Ghoom Museum, and admire all the interesting features of Happy Valley Tea Estate.
