The stunning scenery of the Himalayan foothills can be experienced by walking through some of the many tea plantations, where you can often see the tea-pickers hard at work delicately removing "two leaves and a bud" to create the best quality tea.
Tiger Hill Scenic Walk
Tiger Hill Scenic Walk, India
An early start (as early as 4am) is recommended for the visit to Tiger Hill, situated around 11 km from Darjeeling. It takes about an hour to reach this miniature plateau from which to view the sun's first rays breaking over mighty Kanchenjunga (8586m) and Mount Everest further into the distance.
A tourist rest house is situated here and refreshments are available, although your hotel will also supply you with a packed breakfast. From here you will walk back to Darjeeling. This scenic walk takes around 2 hours in total.
