Review of "Darjeeling (India)"
I am unable to understand that how this one is left with only 2 reviews...this is a heaven man and i expected 1000 reviews on this....anyhow...i will tell you how .........I went to this place recently on October this year..so i am fresh enough with memories to tell you everything about it ......
Darjeeling is located in State of West Bengal , India and once you enter India you will start hearing its name for pouplar Tea it produces...but the Place is not only about Tea....its a heaven..trust me its a Heaven.....Though you will be attracted for 9-10 points there but i will suggest you what are the actual worth visiting places :
Tiger Hills :This is a place with which you will start your early morning in Darjeeling. Go to this place at 4.00 in the morning and see the lovely first ray of sun falling on the Kanchenjunga peeks with an awesome view of sunrise...i was half asleep when reached there but once i saw this beautiful scene in fromt of my eyes...i could not sleep for days....i just cannot stop remebering its beauty.....
Tea Gardens :The hilly town is completely surrounded with tea Gardens all around. These are grown in such a disciplined manner that you won't stop saying wow !! .....the smell of tea leaves makes the place smeeling so good that you will always be fresh.
Zoo and Museum :This is the place where they have some great rare species which are found only in India kept secure...i would suggest you to take a guide and then see this place...not because he will show you the place but they are actually professional photographers who take outstabnding pics... The museseum has the dresses and equipments which were used by Tenzing and Hillary to climb mount everest...isn't it interesting ??
Rock Garden :This place is outstanding with a beutiful waterfall between a equally good rock strata....what i did was to go to the originating point of that waterfall....did i reach there ...NO.....i could not..i was tired climbing up the stairs made but could not reach to origination point....
Nearby Places :Some of the places you should go and enjoy are :
Nathulla Paas : which uis a china border and is almost 14000 ft high.
TEA...TEA....and only TEA....and that too from a very popular shop named as NATHMULL'S. You will find a wide range of original exotic tea......What to Eat ??
MOMOS...MOMOS and MOMOS from any local shop....reason they are expert making them....Where to Stay :
There are though number of Hotels where you can stay but the best one are :
The last airport near darjeeling is Baghdogra . You will need to take a local flight to baghdogra from Delhi if you have landed at Delhi.
From baghdogra take a Pre-Paid AC Cab to darjeeling which will charge you almost 2500 in their currency and you will reach ni 2 hours or so..
Weather:The weather conditons are good in darjeeling as compared to other other places in India. Itsa cool place ad you will feel good there.
Its mostly moist and cool. So carry yuor woolens.
Suggestions:Stay for about 4-5 days atleast to explore the place completely.
Avoid roaming in City area it won't attract you.
