  Darjeeling, Tenzing Norgay Road
by sachara
 
 

From the Mall in the centre we descend a little to the Tenzing Norgay road along the south side of the ridge. The views are fantastic, if it is not too hazy.
At the first part of the road are a lot of small budget hotels.
The houses on this steep slope are built on stilts. During our walk we saw a lot of houses under construction and it was very informative to see the different stages of the building process under these difficult circumstances.
Also the road was under construction, we saw a lot of people breaking stones with the hand.

Directions: South ridge of Darjeeling.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
