The train, the tea, and the hills bring visitors to Darjeeling, one of India's most famous and well-preserved Raj-era hill stations.
Attractions like Padmaja Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park and Tinchuley Village make great kid-friendly stops. Museum-lovers will get to explore Himalayan Mountaineering Institute and Everest Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Darjeeling side-trips: Ralong Monastery (in Ravangla), Tashiding Monastery (in Yuksom) and Namchi (Siddheswar Dham, Saibaba Temple, & more). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Japanese Peace Pagoda, explore the galleries of Kalimpong Arts & Craft Centre, make a trip to Batasia Loop, and take some stellar pictures from Tiger Hill.
