"The one land that all men desire to see, and having seen once-by even a glimpse would not give that glimpse for the shows of the rest of the world combined" - Mark Twain.
Nestled among the rolling mountains with the glistening Mt Kanchenjunga towering over the azure sky, Darjeeling fondly called "Queen of the Hills", provides a perfect gateway for those seeking to be in harmony with nature.
This is the land of the muscatel flavored Darjeeling tearevered by connoisseurs across the globe. This is the land of the world heritage Darjeeling Himalayan Railway where the century old miniature steam engine still chugs uphill vying for space with the fast disappearing Land Rovers.
Darjeeling - Perched at a height of 2134 metres with a backdrop of the mighty Himalayan peaks, Darjeeling has attracted generations of visitors to sample the joys of cool, healthy, gracious and adventurous living. Surrounded by some of the highest peaks of the Himalayas on one side, and thousands of acres of Tea gardens on the other, Darjeeling holds a special interest for the botanist, ornithologist, trekker, photographer and artist, apart from the holiday-seeker. Places to visit in Darjeeling include the Tiger Hill, for it’s wonderful views of the Everest and the Kanchenjunga, the Himalayan Moutaineering Institute, that still houses, the equipment used by Sir Edmund Hilary and Tenzing on their Everest expedition, and the Himalayan Zoological Park.
