The train, the tea, and the hills bring visitors to Darjeeling, one of India's most famous and well-preserved Raj-era hill stations.
Get a sense of the local culture at Himalayan Mountaineering Institute and Japanese Peace Pagoda. Get outdoors at Padmaja Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park and Dzongri La. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Darjeeling: Gangtok (Hanuman Tok, Tashi View Point, & more), Maenam Wildlife Sanctuary (in Namchi) and Tonglu (in Singalila National Park). There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Tinchuley Village, take in the spiritual surroundings of Ghoom Monastery, take in the awesome beauty at Kanchenjunga Mountain, and identify plant and animal life at Chattakpur.
