So, we got ready, had breakfast, hired a cab from hotel itself, all set to explore Darjeeling (the tea estate).
So, we started around 10am.
Weather was chilling, as light showers were there.
So first we went to Rock Garden,(Waterfall) I still wonder, why it is called Rock garden, rather it is waterfall and a amazing Flora.
But, it was beautiful!!
Very different from waterfalls of Utrakhand.
Then, we headed to ROPE WAY.
one can witness myraid of exquisite landscape with verdant tea estates.
While waiting for our turn at Ropeway, one can see the school, where MAIN HOON NA was shot.
Moving forward, we reached to zoological garden or in simple language zoo.
But, let me tell, that was the most beautiful zoo I have ever seen.
There are large number of animals and birds and must visit for animal lovers.
There are many rare species like Asiatic black beer, Himalayan Monal, Red panda etc.
Next destination was "Happy Valley Tea Estate"
This is land of about 440 acres growing some finest shurbs of the delightful drink in the world.
We had a amazing cup of tea there and that re-energised us after so long day.
Next was "Japanese Peace Pagoda"!!
It is a glistening white structure standing out!
It was built under the guidance of Japanese monk Fuji.
We finished all these sight seeing and headed to Mall road in the evening!!
Had some Tibetan food, momos , and great tea!!
And headed back to our hotel and jus slept after the long tiring day.
