Heavenly Himalyas #2: Momos, Fiddleheads & Ramen

A travel blog entry by npacadia on Apr 11, 2014

This is Part 2 of 3 blog posts about our recent travel to the northern part of India.

A popular food on our journey north, which we enjoyed immensely, was momos. A momo is a type of dumpling native to Nepal and also enjoyed by communities in Tibet, Bhutan and Northeast India, (Sikkim and Darjeeling, where we were.) They are a type of steamed bun, (similar to dim sum) and the ones ...

Trapped

... in this town, he smiled when he saw us & took our order of two chicken chowmeins. We had wait for the 15 or so Indians in front of us get their food & eat, & there was a lot of staring, but at least we had hot food to look forward to. The food was good, & we were servd the ubiquitous broth everyone serves up here, & even that turned out to be good.

Unlike yesterday we managed to haul ourselves out of bed in time to catch a Jeep up Tiger Hill. Frankly though given the weather we really needn't have bothered. The visibility was practically nil and we could barely make out the tree on the edge of our own hill. The sun which we hadn't seen since our arrival ...

Queen of the Hills

Its time to move on to new horizons or actually new mist. We hire a driver for the journey to Darjeeling and start the descent and then the climb. If one thought the previous roads were bad we discover they can be worse. We rarely get out of first gear for 3 hours and I spend most of the drive not looking down past the clouds. As soon as we enter Ghorkaland (tho really West Bengal) the tea appears on the steep slopes. It's a picture we have all seen, the tea trees with ...
