Overview

Kalimpong is a hill station perched on a ridge above the Teesta River. It is home to colonial-era buildings like MacFarlane Memorial Church, named after a Scottish missionary. Deolo Park has landscaped gardens and offers views of the town and surrounding hills.

Gangtok hosts notable Buddhist sites and the Gangtok Ropeway offers panoramic views of the city. The region’s outdoor recreation includes hiking, camping, mountain climbing and white-water rafting.

Pelling, a beautiful town in the West district of Sikkim, situated at a height of 6800ft, has become the second biggest tourist destination in Sikkim after Gangtok. Pelling also has sites for mountain biking, rock climbing, village tours, meditations, apart from serving as a base for a number of treks in the region.

Darjeeling was once a summer resort for the British Raj elite. It remains the terminus of the narrow-gauge Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, or “Toy Train,” completed in 1881. It's famed for the distinctive black tea grown on plantations that dot its surrounding slopes. Its backdrop is Mt. Kanchenjunga, among the world’s highest peaks. The Darjeeling Ropeway which is a round trip from Singamari to Tukvar taking 40 mins, offers breathtaking views of tea gardens.

The north-east region of India is surely one of the most intriguing parts of the country. It is a narrow strip squeezed between the two nations of Bhutan and Bangladesh. Owing to its topography, north-east India is an unexplored paradise with numerous delights. Known as the ‘Seven Sisters’, north-east India is a treasure chest of culture, heritage, history, traditions, natural beauty, adventures and soulful experiences.
