Darjeeling is a hill station which is addressed by many tourists as queen of hill stations. This queen is holding the crown of snow as her head gear which is nothing but the Himalayan snow peak, Kanchenjunga with its amazing beauty.
The nearest airport, Bagdogra is connected with many important cities in India which have made Darjeeling reachable to all tourists from all over India. From Bagdogra, it is a car ride of 3/4 hours which will make the tourist reach his destination very easily. Trains are also coming up to New-Jalpaiguri which is available throughout 24/7. Now I will talk about a toy train ride which terminates at Darjeeling finally. This train runs on narrow gauge line, which holds the name Darjeeling Himalayan Railway constructed in 1881 under the legacy of British. Now Unesco has given this a special status by declaring it as Heritage Railway. The journey is amazingly enjoyable and various people prefer to travel by toy train as this is an additional gain in their tour of Darjeeling.
There are so many spots of tourist's interest that it is difficult to make them fit in here, in this limited space. So I will name only a few places which can be touched while making a trip to Darjeeling. There is a place called Tiger Hill where people go to see the sunrise over Kanchenjunga. When the sun comes up with its crimson red rays spreading on Kanchenjunga peak the tourist get mesmerized by its heavenly beauty.
Lush green tea gardens like the Glenburn tea estate is another place where visitors can purchase tea leaves of their choice besides experience the sigh of tea plantation and collection. Padmaja Naidu (once upon a time she was governor of West Bengal) Himalayan zoological park is famous amongst travelers for its conservation of Red pandas, Snow leopards, Tibetan wolves and other rare animals of Eastern Himalayas. Mountaineering Institute is a spot in Darjeeling in which people can get many photos and equipment used for mountaineering. Ropeway ride is there for tourists which provides a fantastic view of Kanchenjunga that makes the tourists feel excellent. Keventers is another center in Darjeeling which serves coffee and snacks of people irrespective of their age. Other than all these points there are many places to which tourists can pay a visit by car. They are Lepchajagat, Icche gaon, Mirik, etc. All these places have spectacular sceneries where tourist can enjoy and relax at the same time with home comfort and hospitality.
