Darjeelings Brilliant Landscape
  • Now that you are aware of Darjeelings changing
    seasons, it is now time to delve deeper into how
    this spectacular hill station town is laid out.
    Darjeelings landscape as a whole can be
    visualized as three major levels on the hills.
    And each level is inevitably connected to the
    other with steep narrow roads.
  • Chowrasta Mall which is also known as the Town
    Center, is located at the top level, which is
    also one of the popular places to visit in
    Darjeeling. This is where most of Darjeelings
    popular hotels, restaurants and shops are
    located. The top level essentially comprises the
    Nehru Road entirely which leads up to the Mall,
    that is the Mall Road itself. Several hotels have
    come up along Zakir Hussain Road and many hotels
    at the top level offer great views of the
    Kanchenjunga snow peaks.
  • The second level is essentially the area along
    Laden La Road which goes down and connects the
    top level with places like station area, Chowk
    Bazaar etc at the bottom level. You will find
    many Indian styled hotels and shops, along with
    brilliant scenic views of the surrounding
    mountains.

Darjeelings Brilliant Landscape
  • The bottom level is where the popular Chowk
    Bazaar is located. The area remains crowded most
    of the time with locals comprising mostly of
    Nepalese, Tibetans, Lepchas and Bhutias. You can
    find a wide range of budget friendly places to
    stay in Darjeeling here. However, none of them
    can actually offer great views of the mountain
    peak. If you are fond of trekking and walking the
    distance, you can walk all the way up to the top
    most level, which takes about 30 minutes of
    uphill walking.
  • Well there you go, people! We hope you got a
    clear picture of what Darjeeling offers and
    heres what we have to say about the Queen of
    hill stations! Shout out to all the tourists,
    these are two best seasons to visit Darjeeling
  • Between March to May  During Summer season
  • Between October to November  Sometimes during
    winter season
  • Both these times, the temperature is pleasantly
    cool and the sky is usually clear, offering
    spectacular views of the Kanchenjunga snow peaks.
    So, start planning your Darjeeling trip and we
    hope you have a great time.
