“The view for a lifetime !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Darjeeling is a very famous hill station in India. Yes, it is crowded, yes it has a mall road too and yes a quaint train that runs alongside the road. But what I wasn't quite prepared was the overwhelming sight of the Kanchenjunga peak. One cant help but gape in wondrous amazement at its varying hues during the day. DONT DON'T miss the sunrise moment when the first rays light up the snow-clad peak with a golden dazzle.
You must carefully choose your place of stay so that you can get as much of mountain as you can. You are better off travelling in hired transport within the town as getting a parking place is near impossible. The Darjeeling Zoo is worth a look-in.
The drive to nearby Mirk is absolutely captivating and the locales are filmy settings, but Mirk itself is a neglected and poorly kept place and bound to disappoint you.

“The True Rockstar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Kanchendjongha is a myth..too good to be a reality.I am spell bound with its beauty.One has to be very lucky(like me :0) to catch a sneak peek of this natural audacity.Darjeeling the Queen of the hills give the best view(from West Bengal) of the peak.

Dawn is always beautiful, but at this location it was spectacular! The peaks at the left of the view point were magical...
