Darjeeling Travel Guide: 156 reviews and 466 photos
Darjeeling "the Queen of the Hills" is the only hill district in the state of West Bengal.The best season to visit Darjeeling is between April and June. The weather during this period is generally clear though one has to be prepared for the sudden showers of rain. Visitors may also wish to visit Darjeeling between September and November as during these months the mountains are clearly visible and one can enjoy the golden sunrise over the Himalayan peaks. The temperature range is not very large here with the maximum temperatures in summers being 15 degrees and 1.5 degrees in the winter. Visitors to Darjeeling should carry warm clothes with them whenever they visit and should not forget to carry an umbrella as well.
If you want a bit of adventure with some cultural angle thrown in, then Darjeeling is the place you must visit. Visitors are a welcomed part of this rising town, ever since the British established it as one of its most ideal hill stations. Apart from the breath taking sceneries and flourishing green tea gardens you also get to see Buddhist monasteries, Nepalese Hindu temples and the first mountaineering school established by Tenzing Sherpa. More than anything you will fall in love with its simple people and organized lifestyle. It is a superb place to visit, a nice scenic place to visit for a weeklong trip. The hospitality of the people over there is also excellent. Darjeeling tea is regarded as the best black tea in the world.
