“My favourite hillstation- darjeeling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2008

Have you ever wanted to see the ALPS in Switzerland but you could not afford it? There is a place closer to home and much cheaper..Cradled in the foothills of the Himalayas, Darjeeling stands out from other hills in its beauty and charm. Occasionally, politics of the region act as an impediment but most of the time it is a peaceful place.

It is famous for its Tea and boasts some of the finest boarding schools. It has a lot of hotels and restaurants.Moreover, if you are not very brand conscious you can shop till you drop as Darjeeling is famours for its imoprted clothes from Nepal and Singapore.

On a beautiful sunny day, Darjeeling is paradise.
The best time to visit is October but tourist seep on pouring in even in the months of November, December and january hopeful to see their first snowfall.

A large number of foreigeners are always present at any given time. Yu can see the beautiful range of the infamous Kanchenjunga mountains.


There are a lot of things to do in Darjeeling like horseriding,shopping, trekking.,etc

What else could you ask for ?

“A Little Piece Of Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2008

Nestled in the cradle of the Himalayan Mountain range, the quaint town of Darjeeling is a must see. One can reach this tourist hot-spot via road or air. All flights, trains and buses must be caught from the city of Kolkata. Upon reaching Siliguri one can opt to reach Darjeeling by taking the toy train or go via the car. Though one reaches faster via the car, either way the view is fantastic.
Hotels are easily available and the local people are extremely helpful. There are many attractions in Darjeeling such as the Botanical gardens, the Zoo which holds animals such as the Yak, the Himalayan bear and the snow leopard. One can visit the Himalayan Mountaineering institute the only one in India or one can opt for the marvellous sunrise from Tiger Hill. If one is more inclined towards shopping, then Darjeeling is a shoppers dream come true, amazing stuff at throw away prices. One can shop till one drops but never feel the pinch in the wallet.
The best months to head there begin from September when the rains end. If one decides to visit in January or February one can expect to be rewarded with snow. Since the rains begin by late June, its best to visit before then, however the rains too hold a magical quality and prices are lower than at other times of the year. All in all Darjeeling, aptly named queen of the hills is an amazing place to visit at any time.

“Land of Thunder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2008

Passing through those breathtaking valleys and zigzag roads towards the heavenly Darjeeling on the lap of Himalaya can win any heart from eight to eighty. Because nature has so many stuffs to share and you have just a small mind to store them...
With the family or just alone, by toy-train or bus whatever may be the mode or whatever may be the medium, Darjeeling is truely the land of thunder in all sense...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2008

Darjeeling is one of the most beautiful hill stations one can see. Its a place with awesone and breathtaking scenic beauty and its a wonderful place to spend your time. I've been there too many times and its called the queen of hills for a reason.
In summers, u cant enjow any place more and in winters... it snows and its freezing but all that is a part of the hill station obviously..... the place rocks.... trust me !! I miss that place a lot and its surely is one of my fav locations in India !
Ppl DO NOT miss a chance to go the Darjeeling....!
