Darjeeling has established itself as one of India’s most well-known hill resorts. It was formerly the summer capital of India during the British Raj.
This charming hill town in West Bengal is the perfect place to spend a happy honeymoon. Darjeeling, which is surrounded by miles of tea farms, is located at a height of 2050 meters above sea level and enjoys a cool environment all year round.
Since Darjeeling exports the most tea, a large number of travelers flock there during the harvesting season. This time of year, one could see women picking leaves in the fields. International tourists are surrounded by the perfume in the hills.
The Kanchenjunga peak, the third-highest mountain in the world and the highest mountain in India, is visible from this location. The most famous destinations in Darjeeling are a zoo, monasteries, botanical gardens, and the Darjeeling-Rangeet Valley Passenger Ropeway, the longest cable car in Asia. From Tiger Hill, you can watch the sunrise over the mountains in all its brilliant grandeur.
