Darjeeling

Queen of the Hills

The train, the tea, and the hills bring visitors to Darjeeling, one of India's most famous and well-preserved Raj-era hill stations. Taking the World Heritage-listed small mountain train uphill, you'll see the old colonial buildings cling to the ridges of the hills, and tea plantations blending the greenness of nature with the uniform look of something manmade, all backed by the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas. Visits to Darjeeling wouldn't be complete without a cup of locally-grown Darjeeling tea, available throughout the town in a number of teahouses, plantation cafes, and restaurants. Use our India trip planning site to plan your trip to Darjeeling and other destinations in India.
