Tucked away in the Eastern Himalayas, Darjeeling is often termed the "Queen of the Hills." Its verdant tea gardens stretch as far as the eye can see, producing some of the world's finest teas. The toy train, a UNESCO World Heritage site, chugs along the mountains offering panoramic views of the majestic Kanchenjunga peak and the surrounding valleys. The town itself, with its colonial-era architecture, Tibetan markets, and monasteries, exudes a unique charm.
Beyond the allure of its natural beauty and cultural richness, Darjeeling is a gastronomic delight, with local dishes like momos and thukpa winning hearts. The nearest airport, Bagdogra, provides connectivity, with direct flights from major Indian cities like Delhi, Kolkata, and Mumbai.
