    A nature lover's paradise, Darjeeling's botanical garden is my all-time favourite place to visit while in the town. Feel closer to nature, and the tranquility of the place away from the cacophony of the bustling town is infectious. The descent down is amazing.

    A very beautiful and large place settled amidst of bustling town. Has wide range of beautiful flowers and plants. The house of cactus and flowers are placed in different spots. This place is very popular among morning walkers. The huge coniferous trees makes this place more beautiful.
