... the border to the Indian immigration checkpoint. Then I got on a local bus (one hour), to get to a jeep (which broke down), which made me need to get a second jeep (which did not break down and drove for thee hours) which brought me to downtown Darjeeling. No sooner did I cross the border than I got travelers diarrhea. Thank god for Pepto. The 16 hour bus ride from Kathmandu was uneventful but long.

... Tenzing Norgay, one of the first persons to scale Mount Everest.
Other places to visit are the Observatory Hill, Rock Gardens, Mahakal Temple and Ropeway/Cable car. People can also undertake treks.
One should visit the mall road to make some purchases and have local food. Momos is the staple food and is offered at almost every eatery.
Anyone who likes to go on a travel adventure, who likes to walk / trek must visit this place.

Maybe a challenge too far in monsoon season, without any preparation and lacking in fitness....so we opted to climb the popular route to Everest Base Camp (5365m) instead :-)
Travel Tip: There are NO views of Everest from base camp (its more practical, not a tourist attraction), in fact, there is no base camp at all outside of trekking season! ...
