conjures visions of snow peaks, serenity of vibrant green hills steeped in
splendor, a land of breathtaking beauty crowned by the majestic Himalayas.
Darjeeling is one of the most magnificent hill resorts in the world. This
heavenly retreat is bathed in hues of every shade. Flaming red
rhododendrons, sparkling white magnolias, miles of undulating hillsides
covered with emerald green tea bushes, the exotic forests of silver fir -
all under the blanket of a brilliant azure sky dappled with specks of
clouds, compellingly confounds Darjeeling as the QUEEN OF HILL
STATIONS. The crest of Kanchenjunga shining in the first dawn light
truly supports the title.
Darjeeling - the name is derived from the Tibetan word 'Dorje' which means
the precious stone or ecclesiastical sceptre, which is emblematic of the
thunderbolt of Indra, and 'ling' - a place, hence the land of the
thunderbolt. The scepter of Indra is believed to have fallen at a place
where now stands the Observatory Hill.
Darjeeling beckons thousands today for a leisurely respite from the bustle
of the madding crowd. The traveler - whether a tourist or a trekker, an
ornithologist or a photographer, a botanist or an artist - will find in
Darjeeling an experience which will remain etched in ones memory -
