A lovely Victorian town was built among the Himalayan foothills, the remnants of which are still visible around the Chowrasta and Darjeeling remains a popular summer and fall resort for the natives of Kolkata today. The main attractions are the cultural diversity of the Tibetan and Nepali populations. The town is also a jumping off point for travellers heading to Sikkim.

Darjeeling is a town in India’s West Bengal state, in the Himalayan foothills. 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.

Nestled among the rolling mountains with the glistening Mt Kanchenjunga towering over the azure sky, Darjeeling fondly called “Queen of the Hills”, provides a perfect gateway for those seeking to be in harmony with nature. This is the land of the muscatel flavoured Darjeeling tea revered by connoisseurs across the globe. This is the land of the world heritage Darjeeling Himalayan Railway where the century old miniature steam engine still chugs uphill vying for space with the fast disappearing Land Rovers.

“Flowers are everywhere. The days are cold and the sun almost seems to play hide and seek with us”. – Kabi Guru Rabindranath Tagore.

It is certainly that Darjeeling in the post modern era comprises of six T’s -Tea, Teak, Tourism, Toy Train, Tiger Hill and Trekkers’ paradise.

It is located in the state of West Bengal, at an elevation of 6,700 ft (2,000 m). It lies on the Darjeeling-Jalapahar range of the Darjeeling Himalayan hill region. The range is shaped like the alphabet ‘Y’. The hills are enclosed by the higher peaks and snow-clad ranges of the Himalayas, such as Kanchenjunga and Mount Everest which are visible from the town. The soil is mainly composed of conglomerate formations and sandstone. It is poorly consolidated and considered unsuitable for agriculture. Steep slopes and loose topsoil of the area lead to frequent landslides during the monsoon season. The town comes under seismic zone IV and is prone to frequent earthquakes. The town is lined with dense evergreen forests of oak and sal. It is home to various types of fauna including ducks, gulls, mongooses and badgers.

JALAPAHAR

Jalapahar is a ridge as well as a locality in the hilly town of Darjeeling in the Indian state of West Bengal. There was a British military camp in this locality in the Raj days. This ridge meets Katapahar ridge at Observatory HillSt. Paul’s School, one of the oldest public schools, is located here. Jalapahar gives a breath-taking view of Darjeeling town nestling under the majestic peak of Kanchenjanga.

The range on which Darjeeling is located is Y-shaped with the base resting at Katapahar and Jalapahar and two arms diverging north of Observatory Hill. The north-eastern arm dips suddenly and ends in the Lebong spur, while the north-western arm passes through North Point and ends in the valley near Tukver Tea Estate.
