Darjeeling - Toy Train, Tea Gardens, Sight Seeing

by Madhav Srinivasan 5 year, 6 months ago

Darjeeling is paradise on earth. The city has been a major place for tea plantations since the last 150 years. Its scenic landscape, enthralling mountain ranges and vast tea gardens entice scores of tourists each year.

Darjeeling has rightly been called the most scenic and strikingly beautiful location in the eastern Asia. Ever since the colonial days of the British empire, the hill station is designed on a scale of modern architecture and formal planning. With its immense natural value and perfection in location for commercial purposes, it has been the single most important point of contact for the rest of India. Darjeeling is a must visit destination for those planning a trip to North East India

Famous for a diverse nature of novel heritage and whole-scale industry, the city has easily managed to put the north-eastern part of our country on the world map. For over 150 years, history has seen the city of Darjeeling grow into a major hub for tea estates, vocational excursions and above all, a busy sight-seeing spot.

What Makes Darjeeling a Favourite among Tourists?

Darjeeling is one of the few surviving hill-stations that was completely developed and settled by the British, the other notable ones being Shimla and Calcutta. Over the years, Darjeeling has acquired a special status for tourists and ardent foreign travelers on the merit of its awesome natural landscape and a conducive climate. With a cool and temperate climate, it is easily the favorite holiday destination for anyone looking for a quick breakthrough from the hot and humid city life in India.

An added feature comes with the fact that the city is one with a moderately laced price structure. As such hotel stay, transportation costs, food and drinks and above all shopping all come at very competitive prices, so do not delay your Darjeeling holidays in West Bengal.

Darjeeling ‑ A Shopper’s Paradise

Shopping is a popular pastime for most tourists. Coming at almost subsidized rates, the shopping culture in Darjeeling was a kind of haven for foreign products till a few decades back. Before the global bug of industrialization stormed our economy in the early nineties, Darjeeling was a safe market to obtain most of foreign brands of accessories that were shipped and imported from Kathmandu in Nepal. 

Till today, the best brands of costly denims, international perfumes range, high-quality sportswear and footwear are renowned for both their quality in durability and prices as low as one-third of the city rates.

What Awaits You in Darjeeling?

Besides shopping, Darjeeling has probably the best of trekking and sight-seeing locales in all of north-eastern India. For decades, this has been the routine hotspot for family groups and couples for an enjoyable holiday. The novel attractions of toy trains and hills all over still leave the ardent tourist hungry for more on thier holiday tours in Darjeeling

Alongside tours, the rich and plentiful tea estates provide an enriching tour for all travelers. Spread across acres, these tea estates were once owned and maintained by the British governors. Tea was planted in sprawling gardens, and these plantations also gave employment to thousands. More than their commercial value, it is the undivided stretch of beauty that creates a great sight for the travelers.

To top these immense natural gifts, the civic sense and levels of maintenance put in order by the local community is an enviable attribute. The city is spic and span in stark comparison to the level of sanitation and cleanliness we associate with the rest of our country. All these riches have given a position of great respect and fervor to Darjeeling.
