Beautiful Himalayan Tour

Tour Overview

About Darjeeling
Darjeeling is know as the “Queen of Hills”, Darjeeling is a  place of enigmatic natural beauty. still retains the imperialistic touch of British colonial past. Set against the majestic backdrop of the great Himalayas, there is no finer place than Darjeeling to steep yourself in the grandeur and beauty of the towering snow capped mountains. From numerour points in the town you get a view of the mountains that are scarcely rivaled in any part of the world. Darjeeling is a fascinating place with the Buddhist Monasteries. Tea Plantation, Colourful Markets, Handicraft shops, has also the unique attraction of it’s famous Toy-Train a true British legacy. The engines are more than a century old and disgorging black smoke and steam move slowly whistling and puffing away - an anachronism in this age of jet travel.The name ‘Darjeeling’ likely derives from the Tibetan words dorje, meaning ‘thunderbolt’, and ling meaning ‘place’ or ‘land of the thunderbolt’.

 
About Kalimpong
Kalimpong nestles in Himalayan West Bengal, is a sleepy little town, once used to be the hub of the trans Himalayan trade between India and Tibet when merchants used to ferry goods by mule caravan over the Jelepla Pass on the Sikkim Tibet Border. With rich cultural and religious heritage, fascinating scenic beauty and wonderful flora and fauna, Kalimpong is an excellent spot for a quiet holiday.
Once the headquarters of a Bhutanese Governor, the world Kalim means king’s minister, Pong is the stronghold. It is also called Kalibong or the ‘black spur’ by the hill people. Kalibong in the local dialect stands for Kaulim, a fiber plant used for making paper and paper goods. This grows in abundance in this region. The hill region of this part of West Bengal with its rich culture and religious heritage, the fascinating scenic beauty and wonderful flora and fauna has immense tourist potential. The drive to Kalimpong down peshoke road is a fascinating experience, from Ghoom the road branches off to to the east, passing through virgin forest of cryptomaria and lower, down the hill, of sal, oak and maple with overhanging ferns. The forests, far richer than on the Darjeeling side of the hill, are interspersed by clearing growing the best quality Darjeeling Tea; half way down the road after passing through a world bounded by gigantic trees almost suddenly round the Rangeet and the Teesta-- and the towering mountains above, bursts into sight. From the distant depths comes the muffled roar of the mingling of the swifty flowing, turbulent blue-green waters. The road itself is an engineering feat, winding its way through, Peshoke, and Lopchu Tea Estates, it descends 6,000 feet in the last 19kilometres to Teesta Bridge; as it begins its rise,the forests on the Kalimpong side are thinner but make up the lack with the feast of colour in the flooring wild poinsettia and bougainvillea from autumn to spring.

 
About Pelling

Pelling is a small hill town in the district of West Sikkim, India. Pelling is nestled at an altitude of 2,150 m (7,200 feet). The town is located at a distance of 10 km from the district headquarters of Geyzing and 131km from Gangtok. A regular bus service connects the two towns.

 
Heading Gangtok
Sikkim is the only state in India with an ethnic Nepali majority. Sikkim has 11 official languages: Nepali (which is its lingua franca), Sikkimese, Lepcha, Tamang, Limbu, Newari, Rai, Gurung, Magar, Sunwar and English. English is taught in schools and used in government documents. The predominant religions are Hinduism and Vajrayana Buddhism. Sikkim's economy is largely dependent on agriculture and tourism, and as of 2012 the state has the third-smallest GDP among Indian states, although it is also among the fastest-growing.

Bordered by China, Nepal and Bhutan, Sikkim has long been regarded as one of the last Himalayan Shangri-las. Because of its remoteness and the fact that permits are required, Sikkim isn't the most accessible area to visit in India. However, it certainly is one of the most energetic and refreshing. There's something very soothing to the soul about the mountainous beauty and ancient Tibetan Buddhist culture in Sikkim.

Sikkim is situated at the foot of Mount Kanchendzonga and boasts of an unexplored beauty. The lofty mountains dominate the skyline of Sikkim and invites tourists in its snow clad peaks, green emerald slopes, rushing streams, tall Rhododendrons and sparkling orchids. Hilltop monasteries emerge from the rugged terrains while multi-colored prayer flags wave in the mountain breeze.
