Darjeeling Tour Packages & Trips
A former summer capital for the British and a major tea-growing center, Darjeeling straddles a ridge 7200 feet high up in the Himalayas, almost 400 miles north of Kolkata. Nearly eight decades since the British departed, the town is still a lively, cosmopolitan destination, with good restaurants, and shops and bazaars selling an array of Himalayan products. Often combined with a tour of Gangtok in the state of Sikkim, your Darjeeling tour offers plentiful attractions and exciting activities.
Relax with a cup of Darjeeling tea while enjoying the colonial-era architecture, visit a picturesque Buddhist monastery and gaze in awe at the magnificent ice-capped peaks, which dominate the northern horizon. Trek the Singalila Ridge, go walking or mountain biking through the hills and tea plantations. Not to be missed on your Darjeeling vacation, is a two-hour joyride on the 140-year-old steam-billowing toy train that whistles its way to Ghum and back.
