Arrival in Kurseong
Today, you’ll be collected from Bagdogra and transferred to Kurseong, a charming hill station with a cool climate. Kurseong is home to world-famous tea gardens which produce some of the most delicate aromas of all black teas. You’ll spend the night in a restored British colonial home at the foot of the snow-dusted Himalayas. On a clear day you’ll be greeted with a view of the majestic Kanchenjunga, one of the highest mountains in the world. The rest of the day is free for you to explore the town at your own pace.
Toy train to Darjeeling
Today, you’ll take the scenic toy train from Kurseong to Darjeeling on the Himalayan Railway. Darjeeling is nestled between the Himalayan kingdoms of Bhutan and Nepal, surrounded by dramatic peaks. The scenic streets are narrow, steep and typically chaotic, lined with dozens of ramshackle stalls. You’ll spend two nights in a central, cosy hotel.
Darjeeling Surrounds & Departure
Today, you’ll 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. Next, you’ll drive to the oldest Buddhist monastery in Darjeeling before returning to your hotel. The rest of the day is at leisure to explore Darjeeling on your own.
The next day you’ll grab your luggage and get ready to hit the road.
