We reached the hotel around 2pm and had our lunch. We took a nap and then walked down to the local markets. You can look for beautiful woollens at Chowk Bazaar or take a walk in Rock garden. You can enjoy almost all kinds of momos such as veg, chicken, beef. They also serve momos with clear soup. Chicken momos are 40 - 50rs a plate and we get 8momos in a plate. There is nothing much to see in the evening Post 6pm. We went back to our hotel and it was already dark outside. We booked the hotel right next to the mall market so we had an option to go and watch a movie at Inox- Rink Mall. There are many travel company offices so you can take book a package for the sightseeing.
Once when the tiger lived freely.
Tiger Hill (2,573 m) is located in Darjeeling, in the Indian State of West Bengal. It has a panoramic view of Mount Everest and Mount Kanchenjunga together. Have you ever imagined ahold piramid? The Mount Kanchenjunga looks the same when sunlight falls on it. We woke up at 3.30am abs took the cab to tiger hill. The place is too crowded so we unfortunately miss the sunrise

1- Japanese Temple
It is basically a Buddhist temple which is built in the Japanese style , hence, it is called as Japanese Buddhist temple. You can visit the temple anytime between 9am to 6pm. As we entered the temple, there are two lions at the entrance to welcome the visitors. It took about 2 hours to cover all the spots of Japanese Temple and it's neighbour, Peace Pagoda. On the first floor we were invited to a prayer. We were asked to sit on the knees and were handed a small drum and a stick that makes resonant sound with chanting prayer. At the end they give us Prashad. You can enter and leave the prayer anytime you want.
