Trains and tea gardens
A cosmopolitan hill station town with a fusion of cultures - meet Buddhist monks and indulge in afternoon tea
Darjeeling’s history has left this hill station town with a distinctly cosmopolitan feel - an interesting blend of Nepali and Indian culture, dotted with British churches and tea rooms, Tibetan monasteries & temples, as weekend holidaymakers from Kolkata stroll down the Mall alongside Buddhist monks. And all this with a stunning backdrop of snowy Himalayan peaks, and views of the world’s third highest mountain, Kanchenjunga.
Explore the tea gardens, the Everest Museum and take a ride on the old British toy train. Darjeeling is obviously the place to come for a fine cup of tea, but there is a lot more to see besides. It’s also the gateway to venture further north to the old mountain kingdom of Sikkim.

The Far & Wild Community...
We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.
The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… that’s why our focus is on using our community to make your holiday COME TO LIFE.
