The train, the tea, and the hills bring visitors to Darjeeling, one of India's most famous and well-preserved Raj-era hill stations.
Bring the kids along to Padmaja Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park and Batasia Loop. Get out of town with these interesting Darjeeling side-trips: Kalimpong (Pine View Nursery, Tharpa Choling Monastery, & more) and Namchi (Char Dham, Saibaba Temple, & more). There's still lots to do: get great views at Tiger Hill, appreciate the extensive heritage of Chowrasta, take in the awesome beauty at Kanchenjunga Mountain, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Japanese Peace Pagoda.
