Darjeeling - General Information

 
  Darjeeling conjures visions of serenity, of vibrant green hills steeped in splendour, a land of breathtaking beauty crowned by the majestic Himalayas.

Darjeeling is one of the most magnificent hill resorts in the world. This heavenly retreat is bathed in hues of every shade. The flaming red rhododendrons, the sparkling white magnolias, the miles of undulating hillsides covered with emerald green tea bushes, the exotic forests of silver fir – all under the blanket of a brilliant azure sky dappled with specks of clouds, compellingly confounds Darjeeling as the QUEEN OF HILL STATIONS.

Darjeeling – the name is derived from the Tibetan word ‘Dorje’ which means the precious stone or ecclesiastical scepter, which is emblematic of the thunderbolt of Indra and ‘ling’ – a place, hence the land of the thunderbolt. The scepter of Indra is believed to have fallen at a place where now stands the Observatory Hill.

Darjeeling beckons thousand today for a leisurely respite from the bustle of the madding crowd. The traveler – whether a tourist or a trekker, an ornithologist or a photographer, a botanist or an artist – will find in Darjeeling an experience which will remain etched.

MAJOR ATTRACTION
Darjeeling Himalayan Railway – 'WORLD HERITAGE'


This locomotive with little changes still running over hundred years as Toy Train. The train gains its gradient with the help of loops and zigzags, is a marvel of engineering feat. The highest point in this line is Ghoom Railway Station which is 7407 ft. The journey takes more than 7 hours and line passes through green forests and tea gardens. A must for the steam locomotive enthusiast. Diesel Engine has been introduced on 21st May, 2000 from Darjeeling to NJP and vice versa.
