West Bengal

Travelogue Submitted By: Sujatha on 2017-08-07


The last lap of our 7 day Sikkim tour package was a day of sight-seeing in Darjeeling. And the first event was the famous sunrise over the Kangchenjunga peak over Tiger Hill. To see the sun rise over the majestic Mount Everest is a surreal experience. Kangchenjunga is the third highest mountain in the world. It lies partly in Nepal and partly in Sikkim.

Jaldapara Wild life Sanctury

Jaldapara is less popular sanctuary preserves 114 sq km of forests and grasslands along the Torsa River and is a habitat for over 50 Indian one-horned rhinoceros (Rhinoceros unicornis),wild elephants, deers,tigers (rarely seen).Your best chance of spotting a rhino is aboard an elephant safaris.Jaldapara offers dense forest and huge fauna in a serene atmosphere for the nature lovers and travellers seeking isolation.

Rohini Lake

There is a place called Rohini, situated en-route Darjeeling from Siliguri. There happens to be a number of motorable connecting roads from railhead NJP to Darjeeling; (Five I m aware of).


Situated over a steep mountain crest, surrounded by tea gardens and clogged by a Magnificent Himalayan panorama, the archetypical hill station of Darjeeling is truly West Bengal’s leading draw card. If you aren’t staring at Khangchendzonga (8598m), you can sightsee colonial mansions and churches, Buddhist and Hindu temples, botanical gardens and a zoo for Himalayan fauna. The steep narrow streets are crowded with colorful souvenir and handicraft shops, and a good steaming drink and excellent Indian and Tibetan fare are never far away.
