Places to visit in Darjeeling & Gangtok

High altitude, blue sky, chilling breeze and pure nature – hill stations are always the destination for unwinding from the busy city life. Often getting leaves for longer tour becomes difficult and so people like us prefer going to the nearby hill stations. For us who stay in West Bengal the best hill station near to us is Darjeeling and adjoining the ‘Queen of Hills’ is Gangtok. Darjeeling and Gangtok are the two places that are truly gearing up with time while maintaining the serenity of the nature. Apart from Darjeeling, there are numerous places to visit in Gangtok.

It was a group trip for us. Our travel agency helped us plan the tour in such a way that we could see the best of both the places. Although it was not possible for us the see the entire region surrounding Gangtok and Darjeeling, but our 7 days trip helped us visit the famous spots. Out of all the famous tourist places in Gangtok, we managed to see Rumtek Monastery, Khecheopalri Lake, Phodong Monastery and the nature around it.

As far as Darjeeling is concerned, I would say the best place to visit in Darjeeling is the Tiger Hill from where you could see ‘sun rise’ and we were lucky enough to get the clear sky that day. However, all credit goes to our tour operator, they insisted us to take the trip October and thus we could enjoy the best of all the places. Batasia Loop and the zoo in Darjeeling were amazing and the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway made us take the ride to history. The Mall still has its medieval class covered with subtle touch of modernity. In short, a trip worth remembering and all thanks to Tripmaza Holidays for giving us such great offer and customized quality tour service.
