The train, the tea, and the hills bring visitors to Darjeeling, one of India's most famous and well-preserved Raj-era hill stations.
Escape the urban bustle at Padmaja Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park and Parasailing & Paragliding. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Himalayan Mountaineering Institute and Japanese Peace Pagoda. Go for a jaunt from Darjeeling to Kalimpong to see Kalimpong Cactus Nursery about 1h 55 min away. There's lots more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Kanchenjunga Mountain, don't miss a visit to Batasia Loop, contemplate the waterfront views at Senchal Lake, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Ghoom Monastery.
