... up to the hills of Darjeeling. As we had an even longer than usual journey we were in no mood for negotiating and the usual India hassle, but we were blissfully left alone here, strange but so refreshing! We all agreed that Darjeeling was going to be a nice place.

Now the shared jeeps take 10 people each and people catch them like buses to get to and from main areas in the mountains which is great, however, they will not leave their starting points ...

... before setting off at 8am, following the path along the valley sides.

  • Walked mostly through woodlands and across several small streams before descending steeply to reach Srikhala (1900m) and a massive bridge across the Siri Khola.
  • Continued on along a Jeep trail to reach our final destination of Rimbick (2290m). Stopped for tea and chicken momo's before jumping into a Jeep heading back to Darjeeling.

    ... long drive to Tiger Hill to see the sunrise over the Himalayan ranges. We had to go in jeeps due to the state of the road but it took us close to an hour to drive the 8km. Our attempt to see Mt Everest was thwarted by fog and clouds. Intermittently the clouds cleared but if you weren't quick with the camera you missed a shot of the ranges. Back to the hotel for brekky and it was off for a ride on the toy train to Ghoom. We were lucky to be pulled by a steam engine. The tracks share ...

    ... attraction for the British during colonial times and for us alike. Darjeeling was seen as a place to escape the balmy temeparutres of Kolkata and the surrounding plains and a place where famous tea could be grown and consumed in vast qauntities, perfect for the British.

    The journey up to Darjeeling was about three hours with windy narrow roads up the foot hills of the himalayan range. Our taxi driver seemed like a nice fellow, he didnt talk much, but that ...
