A Darjeeling winter is a traveller’s dream come true. A delightful charm envelopes this mountain town in the lap of the Himalayas with astounding views and a festive cheerful atmosphere all around. The views from several corners of Darjeeling are just unbeatable. And there is nothing more comforting in the cold nippy weather than to treat yourself to a hot piping plate of momos or soup chow at any one of several amazing roadside eateries In Darjeeling: truly the Queen of the Hills.
Darjeeling is home to verdant green tea gardens which have stood the test of time, a heritage toy train service and venerable educational institutions like Mount Hermon, St Josephs’s and St. Paul’s. Some other very popular tourist attractions around town include monasteries, rock gardens, zoological parks and Tiger Hill, from where you can see some of the most remarkable sunrises. One can even spend the entire day having a delightful picnic at the scenic area of the Senchal Lakes which is only a short distance away from Tiger Hill.
