The train, the tea, and the hills bring visitors to Darjeeling, one of India's most famous and well-preserved Raj-era hill stations.
Himalayan Mountaineering Institute and Kalimpong Arts & Craft Centre will appeal to museum buffs. Get a sense of the local culture at Tinchuley Village and Japanese Peace Pagoda. Change things up with these side-trips from Darjeeling: Gangtok (Hanuman Tok & Fambong Lho Wildlife Sanctuary), Tashiding Monastery (in Yuksom) and Tonglu (in Singalila National Park). And it doesn't end there: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Kanchenjunga Mountain, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Pemayangtse Monastery, appreciate the extensive heritage of Chowrasta, and meet the residents at Padmaja Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park.

For photos, more things to do, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Darjeeling tour planner .

In August, daily temperatures in Darjeeling can reach 38°C, while at night they dip to 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
