Darjeeling Honeymoon Tour

Duration : 06 Nights / 07 Days
Destination : Darjeeling – Kalimpong – Gangtok

Darjeeling (“place of the thunderbolt”), is a town in the Indian state of West Bengal. It is the headquarters of Darjeeling district, in the Shiwalik Hills on the lower range of the Himalaya, at an average elevation of 2,134 m (6,982 ft). During the British Raj in India, Darjeeling’s temperate climate led to its development as a hill station (hill town) for British residents to escape the heat of the plains during the summers.

Darjeeling is one of the most magnificent hill resorts in the world. This heavenly retreat is bathed in hues of every shade. The flaming red rhododendrons, the sparkling white magnolias, the miles of undulating hill sides covered with emerald green tea bushes, the exotic forests of silver fir – all under the blanket of a brilliant azure sky dappled with specks of clouds, compellingly confounds Darjeeling as the QUEEN OF HILL STATIONS.

Darjeeling is internationally famous for its Tea Industry and the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Darjeeling beckons thousands today for a leisurely respite from the bustle of the madding crowd. The travelers – whether a tourist or a trekker, an ornithologist or a photographer, a botanist or an artist – will find in Darjeeling an experience which will remain etched in ones memory – forever.
