Day 1

Darjeeling is a town in India’s North Bengal....in the Himalayan foothills.Used to be a summer vacation place for British before independence.It is present in the lesser Himalayan range.It gives a vivid landscape of The KANCHENJUNGA...third highest mountain the world.

Well it was my family trip.....a summer vacation at the end of my college year.

When one travels to Sikkim or Darjeeling...Siliguri comes up to be a ‘welcome point ‘.

We reached Siliguri to start our journey towards the town of Darjeeling. Well it took almost 2.5 hours to reach.

A journey through higher hills....twirling roads and scooping through hieghts and depths.

Well we got a 3bed room lodge near the Governor house:Maple tourist lodge.

We spent our evening at the famous mall ....enjoying the colourful flags waving higher in the World Cup season , and people strolling with their family.

Day 2

We decided to go for a small walk by the governor’s. House and the sunrise point.

After a sumptuous brunch we went to the famous Mall Road and the market place to shop for some winter cloths.

Then we went to the glenarys for lunch and left for sightseeing .

The sightseeing list considered taking a walk down the streets of Darjeeling to the railway station clicking some photographs there...added to the Batasia loop and rock gardens and hopping through the lush orange valley tea estate.

Day 3

This was the final day so we decided to venture some outbeat places around Darjeeling ....some monasteries .....long drives on spooky roads which would look scary at night I am sure . Even I heard some spooky tales about the road as said by the villagers who would never dare to use the road after sunset.Sounds scary.isnt it?

We went to Tinchule after that which can b described as one of the best places I have ever visited .

Some beautiful lakes came in our way along with an unknown Buddhist monastery.

Over all it was a vacation to be relaxed aff....anyway due to lack of hotel rooms we had to adjust with not so well up rooms.The vacation was over all a relief giver one.....and you guys should visit this place ....and it’s best during the winters.The north of Bengal will never disappoint you.You can visit some other places around it ....... like Kurseong....Kalimpong or if you are a long drive lover...be it alone or with your family or spouse or maybe your girlfriend....

.....or if you are quite ‘crazy’ about spooky spots then you must visit the QUEEN OF SPOOKY PLACES in India.....The Dow hill.

Ending this travelogue with this up

And

Don’t forget to visit Darjeeling and get a glance of The Kanchenjunga or sit down on the benches of The mall.

With your family

Holding a cup of tea............
