If you are looking for something fun and different to do, and you feel like you want to travel, but you have no idea where to go, well we have just the perfect thing for you to do: an amazing Darjeeling Tour!

One of India’s hidden gems, Darjeeling may not be as big as other popular tourist destinations in the world, but it truly is filled with lots of unforgettable places to see. If you’re not sure what to do yet, we have the perfect ideas for the best Darjeeling Tour, and it starts with….

A Tour at the Batasia Loop

By taking our Darjeeling Tour, you can first appreciate the beauty that this town has to offer by taking one of those famous train rides and trains stops at the Batasia Loop, located just below Ghoom in the town of Darjeeling. Here, you will see falls, and streams, manicured lawns and gardens, and even the majestic Himalayan Range. By being here, you will already feel like you have made the right decision—and this is only just the beginning, mind you.

Tiger Hill, Darjeeling Zoo, Himalayan Mountaineering Institute (HMI)

Next on your magical Darjeeling Tour are three highly important places in town. First is Tiger Hill, popular for being Darjeeling’s highest point where you can see the grandiose snow-capped mountains of the Himalayas—and feel like you are somewhere else on earth! While there, you can also be witness to sunsets speckled with shades of pink and purple, and guess what? While there, you will also be able to see the world’s tallest mountain—none other than the Everest, of course!

After your trip to Tiger Hill, you can then visit Darjeeling Zoo right at the HMI premises. There, you’ll see animals that are native to the Himalayas, and that you may not see anywhere else, such as the Tibetan wolves, snow leopards, and red pandas. Speaking of HMI, it would be wrong not to give some respect to this place as it was established for Tenzing Norgay who first climbed the Everest with Sir Edmund Hillary. Here, you’ll find expedition artifacts, and mountaineering displays. There’s also a boarding school for mountaineers complete with lockers, and a restaurant, too. The nearby mall also serves as a place where you can buy souvenirs for family and friends—it’s like being able to take a piece of the Himalayas with you wherever it is you choose to go.

Ganga Maya Park and Rock Garden

Here are two other scenic places that you can visit while in Darjeeling. Here, you would find the most beautiful fountains, valleys, terraces, and streams that will surely make you feel one with nature, and leave you in awe that the world has something like this to offer. It will make you appreciate your life more—and that is more than you can ask for any trip.

Bengal Natural History Museum, and Japanese Temple and Peace Pagoda

To go on with your nature-tripping, it would be fitting to visit the Bengal Natural History Museum. From being just a bird and butterfly museum in the early 1900s, it has grown to be such an educational museum where you can see and learn about various varieties of fish, reptiles, birds, and mammals, all of which have been preserved and carefully selected for your learning. After enjoying your time there, you can then take a 10 minute car ride to the Japanese Temple and Peace Pagoda—a remnant of one of India’s Asian neighbors. Here, you can say a little prayer, and join the spiritual fellows in their chants and prayers—a chance to revive and rekindle your spirit. You’ll also be able to find four amazingly large and majestic Buddhas in here, and see the radiant Kachejunga’s snow peak ranges, as well. It would certainly be an experience like no other!

Tibetan Refugee Self Help Center and Observatory Hill, and Mahakal Temple

Of course, during your Darjeeling Tour, it would also be good if you can give back, or at least, try to learn more about the history of Darjeeling and its people. One way of doing so is by visiting the Tibetan Rehabilitation Center where you can learn how the Tibetan refugees refused to be defined by their situation, and found ways to help themselves feel and live better. You’ll find crafts and other materials, such as shawls, carpets, and leather items made and sold by the Tibetans—and you’ll find yourself giving them utmost respect for it.

After which, you can visit the Observatory Hill to experience a 360 degree view of Darjeeling, and learn about the former Buddhist Monastery where the observatory now stands—truly a piece of history in itself!

Darjeeling Mall and Darjeeling Ropeway

And of course, you can then end your tour by visiting the Darjeeling Mall and Ropeway. Here, you can lounge under the Indian sun, visit some of the loveliest boutiques around, and even hang near the gorgeous pine trees surrounding the mall! You also should not forget about the ropeway because it is where you can ride some of those amazing cab cars that will allow you to see Darjeeling—and India—in a different light! You will also see waterfalls, forests, tea gardens, and houses that will make you realize that Darjeeling is different from any other place you have been in—and that will make you appreciate it more.
