One of the best of darjeeling.. Make sure you go in clear day since mists/fog will damp your experience to the view

Pristine n Divine mountain mama in the rain..... She looks like the roof of the world from a distance....... a protective mother to the entire world..... as i try n clamber up her feet in veneration..... she ensconces me in her lap like a prodigal son n weeps in joy these tears of monsoon rain....

It's waste of time to get up so early and go for the view. But in rainy season it's really waste. I heard that in summers also, very lucky ppl happen to view the peak.

It is almost a surreal experience watching the sun rise out of the mountains. Its golden rays light up the Mount Kanchenjunga turning into an orange peak. Most magical views I have ever seen in my life.

Darjeeling city is very polluted with diesel fumes. CNG to fuel motor vehicles would make the Darjeeling city visit much more enjoyable.

Over the hyped Sikkim area, I decided to visit Darjeeling and to do a five day trek in Singalila National Park. The trek started in Maneybhanjang, west of Darjeeling.

There are many place in darjeeling and sikkim where you can see the beautiful scene of kanchenjunga mountain but to be honest if you are planning to stay in pelling then you will see amazing view of Mt Kanchenjunga from window of your hotel rooms which is much much better. No place can give you better view than pelling.
