Nestled between the Himalayan kingdoms of Bhutan and Nepal, surrounded by dramatic peaks, Darjeeling is blessed with a cool climate. The scenic streets are narrow, steep and typically chaotic, lined with dozens of ramshackle stalls. It has an atmosphere all of its own.
Take the scenic toy train past snow-capped peaks and emerald valleys, or set off for the top of Tiger Hill before sunrise. As the first beams of sunshine appear between the snow-capped Himalayas and the morning mist disappears from the valley, you’ll be stunned by the beauty that surrounds you.
