Darjeeling in the north east of India provides the perfect ambiance of a hill resort with its mild climate, its green hills and valley and lush green tea gardens which are the major attraction to the jewel in India’s crown. Mt. Kanchenjunga (8,586) looming over the northern horizon gives a magical beauty to the land which entices thousand of visitors.
Here you will visit Pemayangtse Monastery, a Tibetan Buddhist lamasery of the Nyingmapa Order and one of the oldest, Kicheopalri Lake which is scared to both Hindu’s and Buddhist’s alike. Another major attraction is Rumtek Monastery, the seat of the Gyalwa Karmapa Lama
