Darjeeling Introduction

This was our second visit to Darjeeling having previously travelled there in October 2005.  We decided to go there again as we had enjoyed the last visit but had not been able to see some of the town on that occasion.  We stayed in a different hotel a little out of the main centre in a higher location overlooking the town.  Unfortunately on this trip we did not have the clear weather that we had encountered before, it was very misty reducing the visibility considerably.  This was a shame as we could not see the Himalayan peaks but otherwise it  did not effect the trip.

 

 

Darjeeling is in the State of West Bengal and takes about a 2 hour flight and 3 hour car ride to reach.  For more background information on the town and the trip there look back at the pages from the earlier trip. (Darjeeling October 2005)

Here I shall concentrate on the activities from this visit, which included a walk around the town, including the Chowrasta and Observatory Hill and a trip to one of the many tea estates to see how the tea is processed.
