Overview

The last beautiful mountainous halt or hill station in the lower Himalayan Shivalik Ranges is Darjeeling. The picturesque destination is famous for its world-class tea processing units. Enjoy an incredible view of the soaring Kanchenjunga and relish the spectacular sceneries while enjoying a memorable ride in the UNESCO World Heritage listed toy train. The town has its own colonial connections, as it was developed by the Britishers to get respite from the scorching summer heat of the plains. In the modern day the place has developed significantly, but still, it is mostly celebrated for five T’s that is Tea, Tiger Hill, Toy Train, Tea, and Trekking.
The other stunning halt in this itinerary is the tranquil town of Pelling. It is a small and peaceful town mostly famous for its Buddhist monasteries, charming scenic beauty and cool mountain climate. With so many monasteries such as the 17th century Sanga Choling Monastery, Pemayangtse Monastery, and the Rabdentse Palace give a glimpse into the royalty of the place. It is a perfect place to know more about the Buddhism while enjoying the hidden and peaceful beauty of the region.
