Your day-by-day itinerary

Arrival in Darjeeling

Today, you’ll be collected from Bagdogra and transferred to Darjeeling. 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. After checking into your hotel, the rest of the day is at leisure to explore Darjeeling on your own; simply relax, or- depending on the time of year- arrange a visit to a tea estate with your driver – it’s up to you.

Arrival in Darjeeling

Tiger Hill, Ghoom & Toy Train

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.

Tiger Hill, Ghoom & Toy Train

After lunch you’ll be taking a scenic toy train ride past snow-capped peaks, and emerald valleys to Ghoom. The journey takes an hour each way. You’ll have time to stretch your legs in Ghoom and take a walk around the railway museum, before heading back to Darjeeling. The rest of the evening is free to spend as you wish, and you’ll check out the following morning.
