Darjeeling and Gangtok


Last year, when we visited Darjeeling and Gangtok in Sikkim for the first time, we were really get amazed by the natural beauty of our North Eastern India.What I believe, if human invasion is less in our vast natural resources then they will certainly uphold their aesthetics.

A famous hill destination in the north eastern region of India but new for us to explore. Gangtok mostly comprises of Lakes, mountains and specially a glimpse of the third highest peak Kanchenjunga. Gangtok is a hill town enriched with Buddhist culture and as a symbol of Gangtok, colourful prayer flags waving high always stealing the attraction of tourists.

Tsongmo Lake
Tsongmo or Changu Lake, is a glacial lake in the East Sikkim of India which is about 40 kilometres away from Gangtok on the Gangtok-Nathula highway.Here is, the magnificent Tsangu Lake View when elevated by ropeway and if you find the snow in the month of June in India, then definitely the trip is going to be a magnetic one.

The curvy roads of Darjeeling with colourful flowers blooming all around in the greens on both sides of the road will make you feel not less than in Switzerland. We thoroughly enjoyed the days exploring the magnificent scenic beauty of Darjeeling.

Darjeeling Tea Gardens Darjeeling is world famous for their exotic Indian Tea Estates for theur huge range of varieties and flavours. The five hour exciting drive overlooking the magnificent Himalayan Ranges with Tea Gardens on both side of the road imparts impressive view. So, a visit to a Tea Garden in Darjeeling is must to do and definitely bring one of your favourite tea flavours.
After that we visited Himalayan Zoo, the famous Japanese Temple, Rock garden, the Tibetan Handicraft Centre. Meditation Bowls, bells and Buddha paintings and Statues are the perfect things to buy from Darjeeling and Gangtok.
Our stay was at Little Tibet resort, reflecting the culture of Tibet in a miniature form and we really appreciated the theme.

Darjeeling Himalayan Railway The foremost thing to do in Darjeeling is to take a ride in the Toy train, I mean Darjeeling Himalayan Railway that climbs from New Jalpaiguri to Darjeeling which is also included in UNESCO World Heritage sites.
