Tea Garden, Darjeeling Tea Garden, darjeeling

While in Darjeeling it will be a unique experience to visit a nearby Tea Garden to watch the actual process of the manufacturing of Darjeeling Tea. You can even have the privilege of buying tea straight form the tea factory. There are about 70 tea gardens in this hill region and the most accessible one is the Happy Valley Tea Estate, which is about 3 kms from the town or within a walking distance of about 40 minutes. Perhaps the most charming experience in Darjeeling would be the train trip on the almost legendary 'Toy Train', which trudges up the hill from New Jalpaiguri all the way to Darjeeling. A vestige of the colonial rule when Memsahibs traveled on this train to Darjeeling, their summer retreat.

 

Darjeeling is a popular place among the tourists from the different regions of the country and is a lovely place to visit for the adventure and business travelers as well. Darjeeling was earlier the Gorkha capital until it caught the attention of the British Officers and they conceded it as the summer retreat. Darjeeling has also won accolade for the title of 'Queen of the Hill Stations'. The nearest airport to Darjeeling is Bagdogra.

The rail connection to Darjeeling is Jalpaiguri from where one has to take the toy train in order to reach Darjeeling.
