Darjeeling Travel Guide

Till the early part of the 18th century, Darjeeling was governed by the king of Sikkim. Later on Gorkhas intruded on the region and took over the area, which they finally lost to British. The British exploited the place to get away the heat and discovered the strategic importance of the area. They, hence, grew the area as a hill station and tea-growing area. The tourist destination of Darjeeling is well known for its tea industry and eco-tourism.

Timber, tea, and tourism are the major economy of Darjeeling. The tea plantations were originally developed and modernized by the British. Oranges and cardamom are also found in plenty. Conventional arts and crafts of Tibet and Sikkim are the some of the products available for shopping. Traditional Tibetan and Sikkimese food as well as other Indian cuisines are available.

Rain can be anticipated any time in a year. Summer and spring are the two seasons most famous with the visitors around the world. Darjeeling is a popular destination for Bollywood and Bengali film shooting.

The most famous and ubiquitous mode of transport is a four-wheel drive. Land rovers, especially, are the choice of holidaymakers. They can well serpentine through an infuse and sometimes narrow roads of the hill.
