Darjeeling - Enough Caffeine To Fuel An Empire

A travel blog entry by travelingamanda


... up and down the mountain range. The track is adorable and fascinating - it's only two feet in diameter and weaves carefully across and next to the main road. At points there are only a couple of inches of clearance between the train and the storefronts that now line the track. I wonder how many stacks of oranges get knocked over each year. The train has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. And rightly so - the experience really makes you travel back in time to a simple ...

Darjeeling and Singalila Ridge (Sikkim, too!)

A travel blog entry by therunningdog


... Darjeeling and Sikkim are considered to be in a "sensitive" area. Hence, permits are supposedly required for most treks and forays into the nearby Himalayas.

Given the fact that Deepak and Samyog are both vegetarian and choose not to eat eggs, coupled with the lack of ...

A travel blog entry by hadleyandlaura


... next day. We had a look at the local market which was quite busy and looked in a few of the gift shops. We then headed back to the hotel and researched a bit more into Nepal. For dinner we went to a Tibetan restaurant. I didn't realise how big the portions were so after the massive glass noodle soup I then had 10 massive momos! It was very tasty whilst Hadley had curry rice. We then went back to the hotel and got an early night as we were quite ...
