Located at only half an hour’s drive from Ging Tea Estate, Darjeeling Town set against the Khangchendzonga makes the perfect day trip. Received as a gift by the Britishers from the Raja of Sikkim, Darjeeling was both a strategic location for them in the Himalayas and their favorite summer retreat.
Start the day early watching the sunrise at Tiger Hill over the mighty Kanchenjunga (India’s highest peak). It will for sure leave you in awe of the Himalayas and its magnanimity.Take a ride on the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway better known as the ‘Toy Train’ which passes through regions of sheer beauty including the engineering marvel – Batasia Loop. Stop by at the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute to be inspired by Tenzing Norgay or visit the Lloyd Botanical Gardens.
In the afternoon, lounge around in Mall Road, full with small shops and charming cafes including the famous Keventer’s.
