To many the name Darjeeling evokes memories of the days of Raj. For others it is the famous tea that springs to mind.
There are many Darjeeling tours that allow you to explore the beautiful green plantations and the picturesque town located in the lesser Himalayas. A favourite thing for tourists to do when visiting is to take a ride on the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway.
Travelling along the 53 mile narrow gauge track from Siliguri you are transported back in time as you are powered along by a wonderful old steam engine. This has to be the perfect way to begin your Darjeeling tour.
