Gangtok package tour: Darjeeling travel offers eternal memories

North-eastern India is a hot spot amongst the tourists (both Indian and the foreigners). With Himalayas extending its left hands towards the east, Darjeeling and Gangtok conjure up some of the most appealing and exquisite hill sites to enamor every visitor. Darjeeling is so serene and scenic that it has been labeled as the ‘Queen of the Hills’. There’s no doubt as to the unparalleled charm of the place that has found place in a number of Bollywood films right from ‘Aradhana’ to ‘Parineeta’ and also in a number of novels of great authors like Satyajit Ray. Under the north east package, you can expect a host of things including beautiful panorama, mouth-watering food, top-class restaurants and exotic hotels & resorts. The sightseeing offered by Gangtok package tour is also delightful.

Darjeeling is a quiet hill station with a mildly cold climate and beautiful Himalayan slopes everywhere. The scenic view points can be breathtaking particularly the famous Tiger Hill. It presents a very alluring view of sunrise to those who brave the early morning chill to go to the spot. The Mall Road is a must-visit. A busy market place, Mall Road offers stalls and shops for the tourists to buy a hoard of things at throwaway price. It also has some of the popular food courts & snack bars that have a very nice ambience. Horse riding is another attractive feature of the place and everybody from a 7-year old child to a 60-year old elderly can relish the prospect of getting a feel of the steely backbone of the royal horses.

Darjeeling’s heritage is its toy trains and even though, at times, these services get disrupted owing to climatic reasons or terrain problems, their rich legacy continues till this day.

Getting to know the culture of the place by mixing with the local people is also a very enticing prospect. Sipping the morning ‘chai’ of the world famous Darjeeling flavored tea is something every tourist looks forward to. Then there are sightseeing places like the Darjeeling Zoo, the tea gardens and the Botanical Gardens to name a few.

Under the north east package, you should also take a trip to Gangtok. It’s close to Darjeeling and is a place known for its temples, monasteries and scenic beauty. The hills and the cascading waterfalls & lakes of Gangtok are, indeed, enamoring. No wonder, why a holiday in these north eastern corners can fill you with spiritual bliss.
