The former British Empire’s summer capital, Darjeeling served as a sanatorium and a refuge from the heat of the lowlands. Due to its captivating locations, breathtaking views of the mountains and valleys, amazing natural beauty, and old-world charm, Darjeeling is appropriately recognized as the “Queen of the Hills” and receives a large number of visitors each year. Discover the top attractions in Darjeeling, including the Himalayan Railway, the Darjeeling Ropeway, the Batasia Loop, the Mountaineering Institute, and more. To see the magnificent Kanchenjunga in Darjeeling, you must go to Tiger Hill, especially around daybreak. Exploring Rock Garden and getting lost in the pine, oak, and rhododendron forests of Lepcha Jagat, a small village, would undoubtedly be a dream come true for nature lovers.

The vehicle will be changed based on local vehicle regulations as well as road or weather conditions. We provide exclusive tourist vehicles that are customized and maintained with the needs and comfort of travelers in mind. Due to unwritten local rules, it is not possible to provide a single vehicle for the entire trip in Darjeeling, Gangtok, and Pemayangtse. As a result, all transfers and sightseeing will be done on a point-to-point basis, and in most cases, the vehicle will be replaced with a similar one. The inconvenience would be regretted.
The guests will be accompanied by an English/Hindi/Bangla-speaking driver cum guide. Upon arrival at the land port, airport, or railway station, all guests will be greeted and welcomed by our trained, equipped, and professional representative who will brief them on the tour and stay in touch with them until the tour concludes. We also have a local representative in most of the destinations who will meet you and assist you throughout the tour. In this manner, the guests will never leave feeling alone in an unknown location.
