About Darjeeling :

Nested in the Himalayas, Darjeeling is situated at an altitude of 2134 metres. The name of the town has been derived from “Dorje Ling” meaning the place of Dorje-the Mystic.
To most international visitors, the name Darjeeling brings to mind, the best quality ‘tea’ in the world. Bearing testimony to this, are over 70 tea gardens close to town. The Darjeeling Toy Train (declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999) chugs along from New Jalpaiguri and reaches Darjeeling after travelling through jungles, rice paddies, tea gardens and pine forests, making this “a journey to remember”.
