Plan to Enjoy This Summer with your Family

Summers are fast approaching and in a few days of time you would witness the hill stations flocking with huge number of people. I am sure many of you must be also being planning to visit somewhere especially my friends of North India because the summers in North India are very painful.
There are several places to be visited during the summers like Shimla, Manali, Nanital etc. but I would recommend you to visit Darjeeling. It is situated in West Bengal in Lesser Himalaya range.

Make sure child safety locks are activated on windows and doors within reach of curious hands.
Darjeeling is famous for its tea plantations across the mountains. The town was a British colony before independence and it has one of the oldest steam locomotive engines in India. Darjeeling has various British style public schools with boarding which attracts many students from different states. Since Darjeeling is a part of Eastern Himalayan geographic zone, it has sal, oak forests which look really beautiful. You can find rare variety of orchids in these forests. Darjeeling tea is known worldwide and it is recommended to bring home 2-3 packets if you are a lover of tea.

Besides tea the best thing about Darjeeling is the’ Darjeeling Himalayan Railway ‘which is A UNESCO world heritage site. It resembles with the toy train one in Shimla.  The 78 kms ride starts from new Jalpaiguri and ends in Darjeeling. The journey captures one of the most marvelous and picturesque landscapes and it’s certainly a memory of lifetime. So I think I have told enough of Darjeeling to arouse your interest in the city and I Won’t tell you the rest as I want you to go and explore the beauty yourself.
