This hotel has been very satisfactory. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. We love the duvets - beds very comfy. We could have a spectacular view of the valley if the mist would lift but it might be the wrong season - April 18 & 19. The restaurant in the hotel is quite good and recommended in guidebooks. Service has been good. I hadn't realized that Sikkim is making lots of efforts to be green and I appreciate that a lot.

He also informed us of the history and how the British smuggled in the tea from China. They then employed cheap labour from neighbouring countries explaining the diverse culture found here. The Brits also bought over British plants so found everywhere across darjeeling are roses, daisies and pansies. He showed us ...
... permit for entering Sikkim (needed because Sikkim is contested territory between India and China and they are currently engaged in a border dispute), and then headed out to explore Darjeeling. We spent the day shopping, mostly Charlene doing the shopping, and tea tasting. I bought some fabulous tea called moonbeam, and some others for a gift. I didn't want to buy much else because I didn't see anything I really needed to have and seeing Charlene loaded up with ...
